Challenges in the industry

According to the actress there are two challenges she faces in the industry:
Where you come fom
'Actors from the Northwest Region of Cameroon are hardly casted in movies produced out of Bamenda. This is due to the fact that people from this part of Cameroon do not support showbiz. As a result, producers will prefer to go for actors in regions that consume their products!'

"Alot in Cameroon is still being done based on 'man know man. This is cuts across the cast, and crew! And with this, some projects either end up dragging your name to the mud, or taking longer time than imagined."

On her most challenging movie, the actress told Thatcher that 'TWO WAYS' is the most challenging movie she has been involved in. And by God's Grace, it is being selected in many festival across Africa and the world!.

On her cast in the much talked about SHRILL, the actress said: "Misplaced dates! I was going for another audition 'little Cindy' which was rather taking place in LIMBE that day. When I got there, it was a different audition going on and was told that the Buea LITTLE CYNDY audition took place but the previous day. So I decided to audition for SHRILL. And... I was casted!"

The actress says she has not yet had the opportunity to work beyond the boundaries of Cameroon, but working with actors and actresses like Helen Paul, Bishop Imeh and Nadia Buhari from neighboring Nigeria and Ghana, she believes doors are opened to her in that direction.
