According to her, “I purposely took a break from doing movies. I became a producer and I wanted to be doing my own movies but piracy couldn’t allow me.
“In Nollywood, experience is actually the best teacher; nobody really tells you the truth. You have to go through the experience to find out what others are suffering from.
“We cannot continue to ignore the fact that piracy has been trying to bring the industry down. That was why I took a break. I couldn’t continue producing movies without recouping my money. It is not a good thing.
“I am not always in the country because I do other businesses. Maybe the time they want to call me for a job will be when I am jetting out. But now, I am home. I am fully on the ground unlike before. I am available if any producer needs me. It is just that I feel sorry for them how they would recoup their money,” she added.
