In an interview she said:

Knocking on Heaven’s Door was my first film project and I also landed the lead role. It literarily introduced me to Nollywood, so I’m very grateful to everyone who had a hand in making that happen, especially Emem Isong, Desmond Elliot and the Royal Arts Academy team. There have been several other projects following that, including Lowladee’s Brave and, more recently, Gidi Up. Before my foray into film, I’d had a very good run on stage with plays like London Life, Lagos Living, Band Aid and Saro. All of these projects added a bit of light to the limelight, but, yes, Knocking On Heaven’s Door did bring an extra oomph.
