This past year has proven how strong-hearted I am and that I can conquer whatever I put my mind to.!
I am a living testimony of perseverance! Countless sleepless nights, so many nights of tears, being, aches, and pains, wondered if I’d see another day! Lost my younger brother (God bless your soul Douglas)
Oh! The time I stepped into the big girl’s shoes, executively produced my first movie. A budget of N34m but ended up spending almost N50m. Hummm! Story for another day!
I promoted the movie like my life depended on it! Well, it did! I had casts who F’ed me over upon all the contracts signed 😂😂 but like I said, story for another day!
With all my push, my sweat! I scaled through and my movie ranked 9th biggest movie in the country! On my first try? God is the greatest!
I have got to add this, To those who randomly showed so much love to me, thank you! To those who intentionally tried to kill my joy, thank you! You made me push harder coz I don’t accept defeat!
Look I say this often because I live and breathe by this! For as long as you’ve got life, you’ve got hope! Do not be intimidated to accept fear and defeat! Stand strong and go forth to achieve greatness.
What more can I ask for? I’ve got the best Children and family members. A few great friends and my beautiful Family. Without you, I’m no one. We go hard this new year.
