Becoming a mother has empowered me the more.
Aside becoming emotionally vulnerable, I’ve found my inner strength and confidence. I see a new and better me now that I’m a mother than when I was single.

Yes. Being a mother is one of the most important roles a woman can play, because it gives you purpose in life. And when you know your purpose, you will always work hard to be a better person.

In fact, I couldn’t believe it myself. I have a detox tea I use. One of my senior colleagues, actress Ayobami Ojo popularly known as Oyita gave it to me. We are close so she gave me
to go and test it and I was very impressed with the result. So, I went for more.
How best do you relax?
It depends on my mood and account balance. I could decide to chill out with friends or just jet out of the country to anywhere I wish. It all depends.
Are you still open to marriage or you’ve sealed up on it?
I don’t want to talk about that because I wouldn’t want to open an already healed wound. I hope you under- stand. But in all, I am still very open to marriage. I believe so much in love. Love is a beautiful experience.

Hell no! Not now, not ever! It’s my passion and what gets me going.
