Nollywood actresses, Linda Ejiofor and Dayo Amusa, are stunning on the cover of House of Maliq’s April issue. Check out what they had to say about their careers and their daily life.
“I think acting chose me. When I graduated from the University, I wanted to work in advertising. When I auditioned for Tinsel it was because a friend suggested it. I didn’t expect to get selected, but i did. I worked on Tinsel for a while and the director of my very first movie; Midred Okwo saw me on the show and called me in to audition for a character in her movie – The Meeting. I got the part and from that point on, it has been more TV, Films and Stage work”.
The toughest aspect of your job as an actress:
“It is hard to pick the most challenging aspect of acting. But getting into character and memorizing my lines are some of those that come to mind”.
Advice would you give to kids today:
“Success is never instant, so when you have a conviction to do something, do not give up at the first or tenth hurdle. You need to work hard at it, because practice makes perfect”.
Interview With Dayo Amusa:
Why music and acting?
“Acting has always been a big passion for me, it's been something i had always dreamt doing as far back as my primary school days. So when the opportunity came in, I didn't hold back because if did hold back then am no good. Same as Music. Music is something I know I would do even before I joined the entertainment industry. That my parents had seen in me. Though my mum never actually wanted me to be an actress. Now, I am not holding back”.
What are you working on:
Doing my pre-production plans towards my new movie project. Also will be dropping some singles and musical video before the last quarter of the year as I will launching out my 1st Album then.
What's the weirdest thing you experienced from a fan:
“It happened at Maryland Ikeja. I was driving and this lady who happens to be seated in the car beside me was seriously waving & rolling down at the same time. I did rolled down too to say hello. Then she asked for my number and i politely told her I couldn't ,that I was sorry. You don't want to know how she switched into insulting me. I was so shocked that i didn't even know if I should roll up or just keep staring. Wasn't funny”!
