My Dad died ! Everything went down hill. It looked like even schooling had come to an end. All Hope seemed to have come to an End! I was able to stand against all odds beside my widowed Mum. I wanted to be succesful so bad, I was sensitive to all opportunities. I escorted a friend to an acting audition, she didn’t get in , i did. I Found my Future… , It was tough …#YetIwon

Fast forward to the ban on top actors. Everyone was banned for one year. I was banned for two. I had always wanted to do music…my first Love but there was No time. Now I had time, Against all odds I did and released my first album GBA Had a Hit “Naija Lowa” was invited for the Grammy! My song “Barren Land” From my second Album Me, myself and eyes ” was adapted by Amnesty international and I was signed to Bungalo Universal ! I earn Royalties in $$$ … Despite the ups and downs ….#yetIwon.
