Beautiful Nollywood actress, Lota Chukwu, has taken to her Instagram page to share inspiring words and her struggle before she became a household name in the Nigerian entertainment industry. The award-winning actress who says she officially started the acting business 5 years ago, says that she experienced a lot whilst trying to pursue her dreams and carve a niche for herself in the industry.
According to the actress, the picture she shared which shows her in an office, wearing sneakers, was taken five years back when she was still moving from place to place, trying to get a role in movies.
She made it known to her fans that she never knew anyone in Nollywood but she knew GOD. Though she got broke fast, was abandoned and no one cared about her, she kept pushing herself to be the best she could.
In her own words;
“My habit of dresses and sneakers didn’t start today…
My #WCW is this girl right here. The strongest, most fearless person I know…. me, 5 years ago. See that smile, see that confidence in her eyes? She’d just left everything and everyone she knew to chase a life that might never work. Leaving my dogs was incredibly hard but I had to. This was my first week in Lagos, totally different from everything I knew but I did it. I didn’t know anybody in the business before I moved here but I knew God and He had me. Getting broke fast, depleted savings, but nobody cared and I didn’t care to share. Almost 5 years later, and so much has changed. I’m not as fearless as I was before or as impulsive but that’s fine. We’ll find our fire again. So here’s my reminder to you. Do it. Do it broke, do it afraid, do it fearfully, do it shaking, but do it anyway.”
