How would you describe your kind of person?
I’m easy going, a learner and I’m ambitious. I’m not much of an extrovert and I pay a lot of attention to detail. I have a small circle of friends. Also, I’m a lover of good music; I sing and play the guitar and piano.

You seem to be endowed in the arts. How did it all begin?
While in school as an undergraduate of Theatre Arts, I featured in countless stage plays including Femi Osofisan’s Hopes Of The Living Dead, Grip Am, Everyman, Trials Of Oba Ovoramnwen, Esiaba Irobi’s Hangmen Also Die, Gold, Frankincense and Myrrh and lots more. I’ve always had the conviction that I would be in entertainment. I had a very interesting childhood. I was raised in a home where one was exposed to arts in all forms. And I’m lucky to have liberal minded parents who allowed us to pursue our dreams. So it wasn’t a surprise to my folks when I chose to study Theatre Arts. During my youth service in Kaduna State, I went for an audition and got a role in a soap opera entitled Webs. After service I pursued my dream and attended as many auditions as possible and today the rest is history.

What was it like acting in Teco Benson’s Danger Signal?
(Laughter) That was in my third year in the University. I got wind of the audition in Lagos and I left school in a commercial luxurious bus in the night. I stood half of the journey and slept on the floor of the bus because I couldn’t afford the fare. When I got to Lagos in the morning, I rushed to a friend’s house and showered, then headed to the national theatre for the audition. Luckily I made it and was given a role to play as Desmond Elliot’s friend. Though it wasn’t a big role, I still gave it my best.  It was great acting alongside Desmond Elliot in Danger Signal.

Tell us about life as a celebrity?
(Laughs) I might be popular but I don’t have the notion that I’m a celebrity. I still live my simple life. The only difference is that the exposure has forced me indoors. The life of an actor is not an enviable one. However it’s heartwarming to hear someone tell me ‘you are my role model and I love you.

Which movie would you say shot you to limelight?
Actually I got my breakthrough from Silence Of The Gods but The Illiterate with Tontoh Dike stamped my presence.

What are your dreams?
My dream is to be a successful entertainer; be the best I can and impact lives.

Are you in any relationship?
I’m currently in a relationship with someone so unique to me. She loves and understands me. She’s the complete African woman and she doesn’t like publicity so I’ll leave it at that.

Could you share your most embarrassing moment?
That was the day I fell into a ditch and got carried away by flood while trying to impress my colleagues.

What should your fans expect from you in the nearest future?
My fans should expect a couple of wonderful movies that I did lately. I thank all my fans for their immeasurable love and support and I promise never to fail them.
