The singer who is mostly remembered for her love song, Know, with MI Abaga has forayed into acting as well and she looks to be ready to take her craft notches higher in that respect.

Speaking to Pulse at the recently concluded African International Film Festival (AFRIFF), the entertainer highlighted the importance of music to movies and stage performances saying sounds have a way of influencing what an audience feels in a particular scene.

The music kind of detects how you feel in that particular scene. A really difficult part of editing a movie is deciding what music goes at what part of the movie, or what part of the picture. Even in musicals, even on stage productions, music plays a huge role,”she said.

Having acted in two stage plays all year long the singer is looking to break new grounds in that respect. But it’s got to be worth it in terms of content and depth.

She said: “I’m looking through scripts to decide what next. I need to make sure it’s a very good one. You don’t want to be the person in that film where they say ‘but why, should’ve just continued singing honey,’” she said.

Fans, critics and practitioners of the Nigerian movie industry gathered together for a harvest of the best of African films during the 5th edition of the popular AFRIFF which kicked off on Sunday, November 8 iand closed on Friday, November 13 in the nation’s entertainment hub with rotating screenings from Silverbird Galleria, Victoria Island, City Mall Cinema, Onikan and Genesis Duluxe, Lekki, Lagos.

The festival featured some of the best exports from the continent, while also spotlighting amateurs whose films have been celebrated on the global stage such as Festival de Cannes, France; Berlinale, Germany and Venice International Film Festival among others.

Organizers of AFRIFF 2015 were of the view that the festival, being domiciled in Nigeria, would afford Nollywood the opportunity of sharing artistic and business ideas with filmmakers from other African countries for possible collaborations, and this was indeed the outcome at the end of the day.

“None of my parents lived to be 60, so life for me is just about to get started.”

“There’s been a spectre of death around my life, that’s what I’ve been dealing with last year till this year. When I turned 59, it was a big deal for me, a big deal for me! My mom died at 59, my father died at 57/58.”

“So, it was like, can I break it? When people see me and I go on a weight loss, people think that… you know, it’s health. Both my parents were diabetic and hypertensive, I don’t want to be that. I don’t want to be diabetic and hypertensive, I want to be healthier. At least give me a fighting chance to change that whole cycle. Yes, I’m a Christian now, so I’ve broken that yoke but I have to also help myself.”

“Becoming 60 for me is even a bigger deal, so when July comes and I become 60. You know how the Bible says old things have passed away, I will truly become a new man because that is when I’ll make a bucket list. So all these things that you think I’ve achieved or done, for me it’s nothing, like zero.”

“So I’m going to now sit down when I’m 60 and do a bucket list … and then we’ll start.”
