What was life like while growing up?
While growing up, I cherished friendship and I was part of every social activity in school. I was not the quiet type. Till now, I love life and I love expressing myself.
How about your education, where did you school?
After my primary and secondary education, I went to Caritas University in Enugu where I studied business administration. I have always been a business person as well. I love money and I like to do things that bring in money. At a very young age, I bought a car for myself. I started acting when I became a beauty queen. But ordinarily, I would have loved to be a lawyer but it didn’t happen.
You’re a single parent at the moment, how do you find motherhood?
Being a mother is the best gift a woman could ever get from God. It makes you discover yourself and it makes you think of another person. Since you really love your baby, you would want to protect him or her. Last year was beautiful for me because I had my baby girl. It was like a new beginning in my life; I became a mum and everything changed. I had to stop being the Mimi who loved travelling in order to take care of my baby. When my baby turned out to be a girl, I never worried. I just wished for a beautiful child. My daughter is like a little version of me.
What are you doing to keep fit and remain radiant?
Right now, I am struggling to trim down. I put on weight when I had my baby because I had to Bosom feed her for a long time, but I was slim when I was pregnant. I work out every morning and I am dieting. Though I knew I would get fat and my tummy would get big, the joy of being a mother supersedes all that. You can always fix your body and it is worth sacrificing your body to have a child.
You’ve obviously had a break from the movie set, how do you plan to return?
I was on set in December. The producer told me he knew I had a baby but he didn’t mind if I could make myself available. I didn’t think I would able to do it, but I went there with my baby and we did it.
What are the things that fascinate you about life?
I love life, I love to be everywhere. I don’t like being in the office from morning till night. I don’t like to read too much, but it doesn’t mean I am not intelligent. I have always been into modelling or pageant. After winning Miss Africa Beauty Pageant in 2009, I met a director who introduced me to Nollywood and I found acting interesting. I didn’t go through the stress of looking for roles. None of my family members is in Nollywood, but I was told my grandmother was involved in drama. She was part of the drama group in the church and village square. I also have a cousin who sings. My father is not a creative person; he is a doctor while my mother is businesswoman.
Did you get express approval from your parents to become an actor?
When I wanted to venture into acting, I didn’t have much trouble convincing my father because I am the only daughter and his favourite. My father also knew that anything I wanted, I would get it. It was not the case of me forfeiting my education for acting; he wouldn’t have supported that. He became proud of me when people starting telling him that they saw me on screen acting.
