Diane takes on the role of Mendora, who is depressed and tries hard to find love after being jilted serially.

Her path crossed with that of Iyanya who plays the role of Dr. Kunle, a therapist, after a referral from her friend to help her get out of depression.

The 14 minutes long short film also featured Kenya actress, Lynn Nardia playing the role of Dr. Kunle.

The reality star’s incursion into the film industry is coming three months after BBNaija 2019.

‘The Therapist’ is written and directed by Evans Edeha.

Pulse also gathered that the production is produced and executive produced by Diane Yashim.

Diane joins other ex-housemates of the BBNaija 2019 Pepper Dem who have landed movie roles shortly after their exit from the reality show.

Earlier in the year, fellow ex-housemate, Sir Dee was spotted on the set of Samuel Olatunji’s ‘Dear Affy’ filming with Teni and Odunlade Adekola.

While in the BBNaija house, Diane had expressed her interest to join the Nigerian film industry when movie star and producer, Funke Akindele-Bello visited the house.

Akindele-Bello even offered to give Diane a role in her popular TV series, ‘Jenifa’s Diary’ on live TV. The Jenifa star went on to officially offer Diane a role in the TV series after she was evicted from the reality show on September 30, 2019.

Many had expected the reality star to jump on Akindele-Bello’s offer but she just surprised fans with her Nollywood debut, which is a self-produced film.
