GP: Let’s talk about your acting career. What year did you start professionally and how did you get started?
BA: I started professionally in 2011. I was sixteen years old and a member of a drama group in Church when someone informed us of an upcoming teens audition. At first, I was reluctant and refused to go. About fifteen of my colleagues went to the audition and shared their audition story with me and that motivated me to go the next day. Eventually, I was among the four selected teens among four hundred and fifty entries. I played Tinuke in the popular Genesis production soap titled ‘So wrong, So wright’

GP: Marriage or Career, which would you consider at the moment
BA: Career at the moment!! Yes because I have a promising future and I know I'm a shining star that the world is waiting for.
GP: If you were not an actress, you'd be?
