“My children are already planning another work for me to do. I was told not to be jumping around; they are planning to open a shop for me so that I can start selling provisions and also produce movies once in a while. That doesn’t mean that I will relegate myself from the industry totally, I will still be doing some jobs since I am fit again. I pray I don’t experience such again” She replied…
