  • I Left the Nigerian Film Industry 10 years ago.
  • I didn’t leave because I wasn’t getting jobs lol, I’m a go-get.ter ( I push and get whatever my heart wants)

*I didn’t leave because I wasn’t a good actor.

  • I didn’t leave because I couldn’t fit into the lifestyle ( those that knew knows) I was so made before I entered Nollywood

(1) I planned out my life accommodating my only Child in it ( that’s what every reasonable and reasonable mother should do) and this includes his wellbeing, education, present and future so I decided to give him
a better life than I got,
a better education than I got,
a better environment than I got,
a better exposure than I got
a better experience than I got and in order to achieve all of this, I will have to leave my comfort zone because nobody is gonna train up my child for me abroad.

TODAY I have achieved that and more.

  • My child can travel the world without stress
  • He now have alternative just incase
  • He has everything better than I had which should be the norm (our children shall be grater than us)


  • I’m a better person
  • more exposed
  • more skilled
  • more experienced
  • more hardworking
  • I have alternative
  • more achievements
  • more knowledge
  • I can travel the world etc so help me do the math.

AM I GOING BACK TO NOLLYWOOD? YES but after my child is settled which is the IMPORTANT to me and now I can say, that has been taken care of by his GRACE.

I’m bold, strong, persistent, independent, hardworking, determined, an achiever, a warrior, a gogetter and I will stop at nothing till I reach my finish line.

THE JAPA you are planning and wishing now at your old age is what I gave up my Nollywood career for , for my child at his early age.

If most of your Parents took care of your yesterday, you won’t be Miserable today and I hope you will plan better for your own children

The Moral of my story is, Choose your FAILURE WELL.”
