‘My fans should expect more movies’ – Linda Ejiofor


Linda Ejiofor

How would you describe 2015 career wise?

2015 has been great for me, it’s been a moving train for me. 2015 has been really good. I went to one of the film schools in Los Angeles, USA, which was sponsored by AFULF and relativity I learnt a lot I never thought I could get under three weeks. Things I did not realize I was doing while acting, now I have words to describe them. We had to do projects and monologues. I learnt how to write my own monologue, I did a short film and two dialogue scenes and they were good.

How many movies have you featured in this year, can you mention some?

I featured in two films, one series and some short movies. I can remember I featured in Soldier Story alongside Tope Tedela, Adesua Etomi, Sambasa, etc, which was directed by Frank Ogah. I also did Dejavu with Funmilola Aofuyebi Raimi. It was directed by Chris Angie. I was also in Out of Luck. It was fun on this set because I had to speak Pidgin English and I enjoyed every bit of it. Apart from Tinsel, I am also in Dowry.

What will you attribute the secret of your success to?

The secret to my success is God and listening to my parents. Listening to some close friends around me and also the fear of God in me and also being prayerful has helped me so far.

What should your fans expect from you in 2016?

My fans should expect more movies, more challenging movie roles and greater things to come from me.

returned to the industry. The sexy role interpreter is one of the most sought after actresses in the Yoruba genre.


How would you describe 2015, career wise?

2015 was a turnover in the history of my career. 2015 was the busiest year since I started my career.

How many movies did you feature in this year, can you mention them?

I did my own movie, Ajatanla. I went out of my usual rich man’s daughter role. A lot of people saw another side of me and I started getting cultural/epic movie scripts. Another huge one was Alani Pomolekun which was Odun Adekola’s movie. I did a good number of movies in 2015. 2015 was a turning point. At a point, I had to start turning down scripts. I don’t really have memory of the titles in my head right now. I am taking my profession more serious now because it has put food on my table and it pays my bill, it has shown me that I am doing something great. 2015 was totally a turnover.

What will you attribute the secret of your success to?

I think it is hard work. For people to see different parts of you and tell how you can interpret different characters. It is simply hard work. I don’t relent on what I know and I try to better myself by putting more effort and show people I can actually do it.

What should your fans expect from you in 2016?

In 2016, I would be doing more jobs. I was not able to do my own movie because I was busy doing other people’s jobs. I have about five scripts that I am ready to shoot. Due to the demand of my job, I couldn’t do my own thing. My fans should expect more of my work in 2016.

I will feature in other people’s job but I have a lot of things to share with my fans for them to learn one or two things I also want to take my movies to the cinema by God’s grace. I hope to achieve them all.
