Que 2 How easy or challenging has it been sustaining your interest in your movie career?
Its been hard as my film journey started in the UK as i studied Communication & Audio visual production Studies (BA Hons) but started out first as a runner, script writer & film extra..No one would give you much of a chance until you put the work in. I have been on some UK films but started in Nollywood around 2012 in the UK. I combined my acting/ producing career with being a journalist, A&R for a known independent record label, being A radio presenter, football scout & more following interview opportunities in Nigeria at Cool fm, silverbird &by the late Chaz B who was starting out his media house during which time i temporarily relocated.
I was also one of the faces of Verve interswitch on National TV in Nigeria. I am also a Voiceover adict.
