Speaking on getting married and having kids

“If I had the opportunity to see God, I would ask him when I would get married and have kids of my own.”

Relocating to Abuja

“I relocated from Lagos to Abuja because of my business. My clothing line was suited for women of the north and that is why I relocated to Abuja. I make long dresses and my target is Abuja women. My move has not affected my career as an actress. Even when I am 80 years old, I can still play various roles. If I relied on Nollywood, I would not be able to feed these children. My relocation has nothing to do with Nollywood. Even if I was still in Lagos, I would have still faced my business till it could stand on its own. The movie is always there and the roles still keep coming in.”

CHECK OUT WHY WE AFRICANS ARE STILL WHERE WE ARE

 

The only way you can lead a "purpose-driving life" in the short time you have to spend in this world is if you don't allow money, position, power to confuse you or make you feel more important than others.

Just look at the above scenario:
**The simple man riding a bicycle is the Prime Minister of Netherlands, Mark Rutte on his way to his office. This is how he serves his people.
**The powerful man leading the long convo is the President on an African country, President Uhuru Kenyatta. He is "lord" over his people.
Funny enough, Netherlands makes cars but Kenya can not produce bicycle. Chai! Africa is in trouble!
