You know I’m a lover of act, what inspired me mostly is the TV show called, SUPER STORY which taught me a lot and made me believe I can actually develop my own story which happens to be a power point into the movie sector and it really draw me close into wanting to become an actor and I started making my moves from there which landed me to the point I am now in the industry
I have been in the industry since 2015 and I have featured into up to 20 movies.
I have faced a lot of challenges going by when I first came into the industry that should be around 2015 and I had nobody to standby me. The only support then was my charisma. Going to auditions, seeing people that you are better than being selected due to one thing or the other, most times you feel like giving up, but I always key to one word which I call survive of the fittest.
