Nollywood actress, Onyi Alex has admonished women to focus on their craft and hone their skills.
According to the thespian, it is pivotal to make something worthwhile of themselves before anything else.
Onyi explained that friends and men will either betray or confuse you (ladies), therefore young ladies are better off focusing on themselves.
“I’m a young girl but my advice to girls younger than me is your career/hobbies first. Friends will betray you, men will confuse you, focus on you, develop yourself.
“Protect your energy, know your power, harness your power and watch yourself bloom.”
Onyi Alex was born and bred in Mushin, Lagos State.
Sharing her experience growing up in Mushin, Onyii Alex recalled,
“I have never said this to anybody. It’s a secret.
In fact, I am that Mushin girl that God blessed.
I love to eat ‘mama put’ and a lot of things like that.
Also, I am a local girl because I grew up in Mushin.
People don’t know I was born and brought up there.
I love my local food joint.
I miss that part of my life.
Also, I always loved watching movies growing up.
In fact, I used to watch Genevieve Nnaji and I aspired to be like her someday. I always told myself.”
‘To be factual I said I want to be like this woman. If she can do it, I can also do it!’
And then I got into the university and there was this long ASUU strike and I went for an audition.
That was how I was picked to play the lead role for 3some. That was the beginning of my career.”
