I am not the type that likes to pull off all the time and that for me is a huge challenge, and then you have to eat late in the night. Sometimes you are on the road at 3 am, or 4 am, it is really tasking.

For me, I do not like the night routine at all. I don’t go to clubs because I don’t like darkness. But then I get to stay late every time and into the night and that’s my biggest fear. Ironically, I still take on scripts and go to locations knowing I will be confronted with my fears all the time. That is the love for the craft.”

A man who knows how to shower me with gifts because I also love to spoil my man with gifts too. My man needs to know God too. In fact, that’s the most important part because if a man loves God, he will love his woman and treat her right.”

She stated further, “Let me also reiterate that most men don’t know that if you want to get a girl, just buy her gifts. Do right by her. Send gifts for no reason. So, I can’t tolerate my man not buying me gifts. I love gifts and I also love to gift people. My man must be a giver.”
