Award winning actress Adesua Etomi recently appeared on Channels TV’s Spotlight, where she opened up about her dreams, her greatest battles and what she’d like to be remembered for.
On her greatest battle
“My greatest battle was the battle of my mind. The battle to convince myself that what I had spent 5 years studying, I should go after because once I finished from uni, I did college and all that. I was too scared to go into the real world and perform because I think it was the fear of failure. Nothing scares me more than failing but there’s nothing worse than not trying. For me, it took me almost two years to pluck up the courage to do this.”
On winning the Best Actress Award
I just thought to myself… “Whatever is going to happen is going to happen, so, just have a good time.” And so, I went there very bubbly and I was fine up until it got to just before my category, then I started shaking like a leaf. Then they called my name and I froze. Everybody was like “Adesua get up.” And I was like “Oh yeah!”
On what acting means to her
I want to act till I die. It will be great if they could use my funeral in the scene of a movie. I am serious, that’s how much this means to me.
