My next move as an actress or as Millicent is to spread my wings in my acting capability in sharing my artistic ability with other African countries most especially NOllywood that I believe will give me the better chance.” She confessed.

And for the future of African entertainment industry, the sultry actress said “as Kenyan, we have a future and the future of Kenya lies in the hands of the younger generation who think beyond tribal lines, a generation that believes in gender equality, development and a government of transparency. We are the majority and we are working towards changing Kenya for the better, not only Kenya,
