“I have experienced tribalism, I know people would say it is a lie, but that is the truth.” “Why have those from a particular group not reached out to people who are not specifically from their areas?” she asked.

“I have worked with a lot of Igbos, my marketer is Igbo, I have worked with a lot of them and I know those I have not worked with, I have not seen the right roles for me yet, but I believe they will come. But how about others, who are independently shooting movies, does that mean those are the only set of actors in Nollywood?” 

“I am not saying they should give me roles, but there are people who want to see fresh faces. We need to give others opportunity to showcase their talents.”
