Movie Director/Producer/Actor - Emem Isong
- How would you describe yourself?
I am street-smart, I tell it like it is, and I am unapologetically ambitious.
- How do you manage to live such an active life?
That's part of my street smarts. I was brought up in the inland towns of Benin city, and dem no dey teach dat ting o. As someone who hopes to be very successful, I have to know how to work hard and play hard - I'm hoping to become a branch manager in my bank.
- Some people have said that you are too brash and talkative. What do you say to this?
Well, na dem sabi. That's me, and who no like am dem fit go hug transformer!
- How do you tell whether a club is a good place to hang out?
Oh man, it depends on the music. If they are laying down solid dance tracks, that's where the party is going to happen. Then I look at the atmosphere - is the place bubbling, with people having fun? Then of course, they have to have a good variety of drinks - me, I like Bailey's Irish Cream.
Verdict? Do you have friends like Ovie, who even when they seem flighty, always got your back?
