How did you come into acting?
I was born and bred in Kaduna State. Everything about my growing up and education was in Kaduna State. I started acting through a sister who used to act back then. That was like 12 years ago. But I can’t remember the title of the first movie I acted in now, because it’s been a long time that I started.
You have a sexy shape, but if I may ask, is it natural or artificial?
I will take that as a compliment. My shape is very natural! I took after my grandma. It’s my grandma that gave me the shape without paying a kobo (laughter).
With this your sexy shape, how do you handle your male fans?
Nothing special, it’s just catching vibe with the positive ones. But if I notice that you want to pass your boundaries, I will put you in your place.
But would you say your body attracts men to you?
Every woman’s body attracts men. But I don’t know what they see in me that attracts them. I won’t talk for them, you know. It could be my playful nature or my weirdness.
Is Fazzima in a relationship or single and ready to mingle?
At the moment, I’m in a relationship, but I’m sure ready to mingle until my wedding day. You know, the main thing is till the D-day. Even when the wedding day is fixed, everything is still in God’s hand.
