According to the actress who was once disregarded by a Nollywood actor for not being 'big enough,' she just wants to be 'bigger and better.'

"I went home and cried, but I had to be the best," she said. "There was no cutting corners. From that day, I put in twice as much work. Attention to details. I kept getting better, went back to school, kept improving."

"I just want to be bigger. I want to be better. I want to improve the technical aspect of production. I'm still going to go back to school. I will always be going back to school to learn more."

"I want to be a Nollywood evangelist. I want to spread the gospel of Nollywood. It has given me so much. It has made my dream come true, so I want the world to see Nollywood."
