 Ermm... Lots of stories. Okay there's this particular one that still trills me anytime... Hahaha... Happened right I front of me. Okay, few years ago my family traveled to the village for my late grandfather's funeral, you know as city people naa, we needed to explore everything about the village life. Lol... This  particular day we followed some of family members to the stream which is a normal routine. You know so happy to feel the air and freshness of the vegetation my younger brother "Ogadinma" and myself decided to swim. We undressed and got into the shallow part of the water trying to swim, then I started hearing some funny sounds like somebody really gulping some serious water in the mouth, turned around and noticed it's my own brother that is really into this water business almost loosing his breath...Lol... I was shocked and amazed as well as everybody in the stream. I raised him up and asked "wetin happen", he replied "I dey swim naa... I told he was almost drowning... He said "Shebi Naso fish dey swim naa, dem dey always open mouth" everybody burst into laughter. I was like Wow so you wan drink the water for stream finish ? Hahahaha... Everybody laughed at the scene wondering if this is a city boy or a forest boy. Hahahaha.
Why did you decide to choose acting as a career?

Hahahaha... I love that question... I didn't choose acting, acting chose me. It is the "most heard" calling.

You know, not knowing I was having fun training  and harnessing myself and talent to a career which kick started  professionally 2009 now paying my bills today and will continue to pay. Lol. AMEN !

What skills according to you are necessary for a successful actor ?

According to me, To be a successful actor one must possess some certain skills, just to mention a few; 
1. An actor must be convincing in his role and accurately portray elements such as time and emotion to the audience. To be a successful in front of the camera or on stage.
 2. Which I feel is first thing first (I stand to be corrected) A great actor shows tremendous respect to the craft, script, writers, directors and all other key personnel involved in a production.
3. There is a true commitment to becoming the best actor he/she can be, as well as to working hard and preserving through rejection to find the best roles especially during auditions and castings.
4. A great actor is confident in his work and portrays that confidence both during a performance as well as in public to help create a rapport with the public which is also important because you're the mirror of yourself. 
5. A great actor has a natural talent for performing and entertaining.
6. To be a successful actor, must at least some degree of vanity that drives him/her  to continue to improve and excel at the craft, then there's no limit to being successful.
