So far, what has been the pains and gains of being an actress?
There are so many pains and gains. Actually, the pain is that I am not always at home as necessary with my children and husband. I am always on location for about two to three days, then go back for another movie shoot. The gain of being an actress is extraordinary because of the passion I have for acting.
Which movie brought you into limelight?
There are so many movies I have done, but the ones people love and the most famous are Iyan Ogun Odun and Omo Gomina, a Yoruba movie released in 2009 and 2010. I believe people really love the movies.

I don’t know anything about Olohunwa. Although, I met him once at a party, he is not my person and we are not close. If at all we are close, then people can cook up a rumour but we are not close. In fact, I did not see him all through last year. Besides, I do not associate with such people.

I am not a make-up freak. I just love my face to be pretty. I also make sure I cleanse my face every night.
