Nollywood actress Adesua Etomi was recently interviewed by her alma mater, University of Wolverhampton‘s magazine WLV Life.
She talked about why she returned to Nigeria after her stay in the UK and what she finds rewarding about acting, and, ultimately, her goals.
Adesua described her experience in the university, as life changing and she said: “It is the foundation upon which my career has been built. She had for a long time known she wanted to be in the arts, wanting to be become an actor but also wanting a course that would focus not only on the practical side of the arts, but also on the theoretical side, too.
When asked about moving to Nigeria, Adesua said she had planned, when she left the UK, to stay only for 3 months. But she arrived in Nigeria and fell in love with the budding film industry, and wanted to be known as one of the people who helped shape it.
According to her, ”Everything boils down to love, Love for the arts, love for Nollywood, and love for Nigeria”.
The beautiful actress also added that she would love to win an Oscar. “I would love the opportunity to put Nigeria and the UK on the map someday.
Speaking about her acting career, Adesuwa said ”It s a blessing because not many people get the privilege to do what they’re [email protected] about every day and get paid for it. Waking up to a job i love every single day is the most rewarding part of my job”.
She also stated that her proudest achievement so far is winning the Best Actress in a Drama award for the movie, “Falling,” at the 2016 Africa Magic Viewers Choice Awards.
