In an interview with DailyIndependent, she talks about here acting career, plus more.

You just released a gospel music video; do you want to become a musician like a few others?

I had the oppourtunity to sing when we shot a movie titled Odum na akwa eke. I did the sound track. It was so lovely and different and it did well in the market. Then, this one came up; it is called Manifestation Time.

Do you hope to continue with music?

Yes, I believe God, depending on my chance out there; the more they accept it, the more I give them something else. I believe in God that people would accept it because already I am receiving calls from people who criticise music. I mean, it is encouraging.

If you weren’t an actress, what career would have appealed to?

I have not even thought of that. I don’t really know, because I have always been an actress, although, I tried being an air hostess. That is one career I have always admired as well. But I went into acting; so it is in the past.

Most of your movies have to do with emotions, so much that you shed tears a lot. How do you make the tears seem to flow naturally?

Well, it comes with a mood and when you are given a character to interprete, when you read the character and begin to feel what is happening to the character, then tears would begin to flow naturally. I don’t think of anything. I don’t have to begin to think of something else that is emotional. I don’t do that at all. I just read my script and I see the character falling in place and when they say “cut,” the tears would stop flowing.
