Ifu Ennada; beauty entrepreneur, actress and ex-Big Brother Nigeria housemate, is the belle on the cover of The Nation Newspaper’s Flair Magazine.
On her feature inside the magazine, she discloses personal details including how her ‘hustle’ led her down the journey to acting. She also recollects her first paid job ever!
On her acting career, she says: “Going down memory lane, I must say that before Big Brother I was getting good roles. Right now things have gotten better and the experience is very inspiring for me. My first cinema film, “Hire a Woman” by Chinney Love Eze, is the highest-grossing Nollywood film from January 2019 till date. I have some films that will be released in cinemas soon, such as “Mad About You,” and also, “The Lost Okorochi,” a film by Abba T. Makama, which I am really excited about. I also have more unreleased film and TV projects, which you will be seeing very soon.”
On her first job, she says: “My first job was a receptionist job. Although, I ended up being the cleaner, messenger and Personal Assistant to my ex-boss. I was just 17 years old at the time. I was in school at the time but worked to support my family and myself. My salary was just N7,000, but I worked so hard that when I left, I was greatly missed. My ex-boss actually asked me to return with a promise to increase my salary, but I knew my time there was done and it was time to move on to greater things. It was a very interesting experience. There I learned to be versatile, manage people way older than I was, as well as work under pressure.”
