A whole lot has changed since I had my baby. Now, I really know what motherhood is all about. A lot of things changed about me; my life, the way I reason, and the way I see things. Bringing another soul to life is something else. It has taught me a whole lot of lessons. Ever since I had my baby, my mentality and my reasoning have changed.”


“You know, you have to give your children time; you have to check up on them, you have to take care of them. Even if you have nannies and other people around you, you won’t be comfortable, you’d still want to show them that mother’s love. That bond is something else, I just don’t know how to explain it.”


Explaining why she married her husband, she disclosed that her husband is a fan of her movies hence won’t be a problem for her to shoot any role given to her.


“I don’t think I’ll reject any role because my husband loves my movies so much. He is in support of me working for people and producing my movies because he loves to see me act. He was actually my fan before we got married. Normally, I don’t do bad roles. We don’t actually do all those kissing and smooching in Nigerian movies anymore,” the actress state.
