I want you to understand that even though I dropped out of secondary school,
I am a proud single mother. If not for God, I don’t know where I would have been.
My major concern is for the young girls, I am not a victim, I am a proud single mother.
Today my child is my school; she was the school that I graduated from.
My first degree was that woman;
You will not understand what it means to become pregnant at 14.

Aside being in school, there are other talents that you have in you.
You should not allow this talent to die in you.
Some of you will come out to be great designers,
I have heard testimonies of people that moved from
the rank of being bank managers and suddenly they
started falling back to their first love.
Be You, Be original. This is what has kept me in the movie industry
for 22 years and by the grace of God still relevant. 22 years ago
I was picked from the gutters, dropped out of secondary school after
the baby saga; I wrote GCE and JAMB and didn’t pass the exam. It has
not been easy, but I have been able to pull through all these
years only by the grace of God.
