The talented movie star, who hails from Ukpata in the Uzo Uwani LGA of Enugu state, started acting while she was a child but due to lack of movie roles momentarily switched careers for dancing.

Having joined Nollywood in 2007, she had begun with minor roles but would later play a supporting role to Ini Edo and Van Vicker in the movie ‘Royal War’ in 2008.

She also took a similar role in 2010 alongside Patience Ozokwor and John Okafor in ‘Open and Close’. Her breakthrough came in 2014 when she played the lead character as Nkoli in ‘Nkoli Nwa Nsukka’.
