According to her: “Years ago, we did this film that was the time the marketers were getting involved in movies. This marketer came to our house, we were living in Ikeja at the time, brought money for myself and my husband to come on this film that they had already started shooting. He wanted us to play the parents of the star of the film and we decided to do it. It was Fred Amata who directed at the time. We started shooting and things were going a bit rocky until one day we were waiting for the lead actress. They told us we had to be on location by eight in the morning. We got on location on time, we were never late. We got dressed and we were waiting. We waited till four in the afternoon.

After those two days, if we don’t finish, I am walking.Fred said I totally understand. I am sure he didn’t believe I would do it.
