First modelling work?
It was an editorial for Kentucky Derby Fashion Style Collection. I started as a model in America. I was a runway model.
First day as actress
I was extremely nervous. That was the movie I did with Saheed Balogun. You or I. My first movie was in Yoruba.
The first was Omolewa makeup. It is an international brand in the United States. But my first endorsement in Nigeria is OOU Majestic. I’m really happy to be part of the team.
First day at movie location?
It was scary. Being in front of the camera for the first time was not easy. Many things were going through my mind. ‘Am I doing it right, am I running my lines well, am I saying it well’ were the questions that ran through mind. But later all the jitters just dissolved.
First trip abroad?
My first trip was from America to Nigeria. I was very young then.
I had an Alsatian dog. I can’t remember what happened to the dog. That was many years ago.
1996 Pontiac Sunfire. I drove that car for years and later gave it out.
