The 40-year-old actress said, “I started making money in entertainment about five years ago when I started working with FilmOne. I remember when Mr Moses Babatope called me and said they’ve paid your money into your account.

“Bigsam (her manager) also called me, and I saw my account. That was the first time I saw over N40m. I’m not joking; I could not sleep. So I called my godmother to say it’s like this FilmOne, people will come and kill me and collect the money“, she stated.

According to ‘The Prophetess’ actress, she is driven more by the passion behind her art.

“I started making movies, not for money but for passion. I just kept pushing, and it was because of the passion I had for it because I loved it. There was no money, yes but money to eat and do other things; we had that, but not this kind of heavy alert. I can confidently tell you that I’m one of the richest actresses. I’m not just a noisemaker,” she added.
