Williams, who hails from Urhobo in Delta state, was born in Ikeja, Lagos into a polygamous family of nine.

She pursued her studies at Kwara State Polytechnic and earned a diploma certificate.

In 2016, she furthered her education in film at Olabisi Onabanjo University in Ago Iwoge, Ogun state.


Faithia ventured into acting by chance when her uncle invited her to stand in for an actress who could not make it to one of their film productions.

This marked her debut in the film ‘Ta Lo Pa Chief’.

She has also started in several Nollywood productions including ‘A Tribe Called Judah’, ‘Aje Meta’, and ‘Mokalik’.

The 55-year-old actress was previously married to Saidi Balogun, with whom she shares two children, a son and a daughter.


The couple divorced in 2014, after which Faithia retained her husband’s surname until 2017 when she reverted to Williams, her maiden name.
