My delving into music
I got into showbiz after I graduated from the Theatre Arts Department of University, Port Harcourt, Rivers State. I have always loved singing and I hail from a family where music runs in our blood. My brother writes music while my younger sister is a songwriter. I did my first movie, “Still Born” while I was in the University.
I played a lead role and I acted alongside some A -list actors in the industry. After completing my certificate programme in Theatre Arts, I delved into music. I was almost going to drop my debut album. Then, I had four singles making waves in the radio and TV stations in Port Harcourt.
