Ini Edo reflects on being a Nollywood star; says Jim Iyke enjoys bullying her
Nollywood actress Ini Edo needs no introduction to fans of the industry, having featured in many award-winning winning movies, and even snagging some herself along the way.
The actress who has been in the industry for more than a decade has recounted some of her experiences so far in the industry, the Vanguard reports.
And obviously, that includes working with some of the stars of Nollywood as well, notably Jim Iyke, one of the most outspoken and controversial male stars.
Per the Vanguard report, Ini Edo confesses that though Jim Iyke enjoys bullying her, she has enjoyed every moment working with him as she reflects on her journey to stardom.
“Sober reflection of how far God has brought me,” she confides. “I was just a young girl who loved to act, never envisaged my passion would bring me this far.
“The journey, the trials, failures, mistakes, tribulations gave me the consistency and the staying power (still becoming). Allow yourself to grow through the process, instant success is not sustainable. “Follow your passion and not the trend in choosing a career.
“Be patient and be teachable, keep your head down and allow your work to speak for you because pride goes before a fall. Above all, I pray for the understanding and wisdom to manage that which is given to us as the ultimate gift. The Cat- the movie Muna Obekwe of blessed memories was always a delight working with him and of course my big bro Jim Iyke, who always enjoyed bullying me till date. Well, now I’m a grown woman.”
