The only advice he gave me was to come up with a tale that was both unique and compelling. He was convinced as soon as he saw the scripts. With the support of my director, Yul Edochie," "Native Girl" was born.

Meanwhile, following the actress' recent second-wife issues, many Nigerians have reminded her of her recent words on marriage in interviews with Vanguard Newspaper, in which she declared that marriage is not an accomplishment.
"I don't believe in moving from one man to another," the actress stated of relationships, marriage, and sex. I'm a person who thrives on relationships. I feel that you should have someone, a guy, with whom you perform this thing, rather than giving it out to all males who cross your path at the same time. You do what you think is best for you.
"In terms of relationships, I adore them, and it's how I'm wired." If a relationship doesn't work out, you have the option of breaking up and getting hooked again, or you may take a break. It's not all about the sex or the emotions in a relationship.
"I enjoy having regular contact with intelligent individuals from whom I may learn. As a result, any "relationship" with the appropriate person is a good idea."
