How do you feel being one of the prettiest actresses is Africa?
Who said so? I’m not the prettiest; there was some kind of nomination like that ‘Most Beautiful Woman in West Africa’. I woke up one morning and I saw that thing and I was happy about it, I was like “ah, so I’m the hottest and prettiest West African woman” It felt great that somebody could actually just sit down and among so many other women in Nollywood and Ghana movie industry, chose me as the prettiest.
It’s not easy because I’m a mom as well. Keeping in shape has been hard. It must go beyond the looks and my figure, I guess my soul, my humanitarian works and things I do made me beautiful in their eyes.Juliet Ibrahim
Which actor do you have chemistry working with on set?
A lot of them; it depends on the person actually and the roles we’re playing. I have very good chemistry working with Majid Michel, also with Frederick who I just met on this set, we’ve been good together. Daniel Lloyd, Bryan Okwara and Mofe Duncan are also on the list as well; there are lots of them. I’ve actually had very good chemistry working with Ramsey Nouah also and a couple of others.Juliet Ibrahim
What attracts you to a man?
For me, it’s always personality; how he treats me, how he talks to me, and how he behaves around people. You can always tell how a man is going to treat you by how he behaves towards other people.Juliet Ibrahim
How would you describe yourself off camera?
I am just a down-to-earth girl, the simplest person you could ever meet. I’m like the clown on this set, when they’re frowning I go there to make them laugh.Juliet Ibrahim
You’ve left your husband now, are you still planning to marry again?
Definitely, someday probably, but right now I’m just focusing on my work and upbringing of my son.Juliet Ibrahim
Which do you love more, music or acting?
Music was my first love, that’s what I grew up doing in a choir in school. I used to sing and perform at talent shows but somewhere along the line, I went for an audition and happened to stumble on acting. Acting opened up the way for me to be able to do my music, that’s how I see it but it doesn’t mean I love one more than the other. Acting is sweet, music is also very sweet because you get to express yourself through music. I also write my own songs and stuff. I love them bothJuliet Ibrahim
Did you really kiss Nikki Samonas in your ‘Final Rain’ movie?
It was a peck; Nikki is like my sister, we grew up together. It was just a peck.Juliet Ibrahim
What more should people expect from you?
They should watch out for my personal movie productions, the next movie coming out Shattered Romance. I have another video and I’m also dropping a song called ‘Sholala’. My movie Shattered Romance is going to be premiered in cinemas very soon.Juliet Ibrahim
