Diane Russet joins other ex-housemates of the BBNaija 2019 Pepper Dem; who have landed movie roles shortly after their exit from the reality show.


She has always openly declared her passion for acting and she was even offered a role in Jenifa’s Diary by actress, Funke Akindele.



Recall Funke Akindele offered to give Diane a role in her popular TV series, ‘Jenifa’s Diary’ on live TV. The Jenifa star went on to officially offer Diane a role in the TV series after she was evicted from the reality show on September 30, 2019.


Many had expected the reality star to jump on Akindele-Bello’s offer but she just surprised fans with her Nollywood debut, which is a self-produced film.
