THE EXCLUSIVE AZZIZAT INTERVIEW
CAN U TELL US WHO AZIZAT IS (GROWING UP AND CHILDHOOD)
I grew up in a polygamous family, was really close to my parents especially my mom. Growing up was a fussion of pleasure and pain. Pleasure in the sense that as a young child, I had no cares in the world. Everything I needed was taken care of by my parents and then all of a sudden at the age of 10 everything came crashing down and then I realized that I was alone on earth and had to be father and mother to my brothers.
LOTS OF PEOPLE COMPARE U TO GENEVIEVE, HOW DO YOU HANDLE THIS? AND HOW DO YOU HANDLE THE PRESSURES OF THE MOVIE INDUSTRY.
I take each day as it comes and try to conquer each obstacle and overcome each challenge at a time. I don't take on a job or project that I can not see through.
WHAT'S UR TAKE ON THE MOVIE INDUSTRY? DO YOU THINK ITS GROWING OR RECLINING?
Nollywood has come along way and the industry has seen itself to where it is without the help of government or the private section. I will say that in alot of ways the industry has grown and because of this the private sector is now paying attention to it. At the same time, we still have alot to learn and do to get the industry to a place where it can stand at par with its counterparts in Hollywood and Bollywood.
