From that moment onward, I watched her grow faster than any of her peers. Despite the uncertainties in the modeling industry, she navigated through tight terrains, battled naysayers and used her look and skills to earn another career in Nollywood without relinquishing her modeling dreams. Today, she’s an accomplished model, actress, and movie producer. She has featured in over 35 movies. An Indigene of Ekiti state studied English and now she’s the C.E.O of an empire called MoLuxury brand. Her grits are enviable.

Talk about your Journey?
I was a model when I got the opportunity to feature in my first movie
“Crossroad” (Agbedemeji) produced by Yomi Fabiyi and directed by the legendary Abbey Lanre. I played the lead female act alongside the talented
Gabriel Afolayan. So many opportunities and acting gigs started coming for me when the movie came out; that was my first big break into the movie industry and it has been an awesome experience/journey so far though with ups and downs combining modeling with acting.
Some people expect me to dump modeling for acting but why would I? Modeling is my first love, I do not intend to drop one for another, and both are still in the same line, entertainment. Sincerely, acting takes more of my time now; the job is quite time consuming and very stressful but it is worth it.
