Sunday Feature: Nollywood actress Emmanuella Iloba lets us into her beautiful world

Nollywood actress, Emmanuella Iloba, is one beauty that's stepping her game in the entertainment industry

Emmanuella, who started as a model, came into the Nigerian movie industry two years ago and since then there's no stopping her from reaching the skies.

In a recent chat, the beauty talked about how acting has changed her perception to life, fashion, hobbies and lots more.

Emmanuella revealed she came into acting fully through an audition organized by veteran filmmaker Chico Ejiro, who saw the talent in her and selected her to be among the actors of which is her first movie "Nollywood Scandal"

On how being an actress has changed her life, she said: "It changed my perception to life. Sometimes we have to be someone we are not, to find out who we are in real life, I am a very shy person. Acting is magical. It Changes your look and your attitude, and you can be anyone."

On her spare times, she read books, loves cooking and also watch her favourite TV programmes or go to the cinema to watch the latest film. And she also love business and considering investing into transportation.

On fashion, the beauty said she dress based on her mood for the day or based on the occasion. She also leads us into her wardrobe, revealing she has stuff such as plated maxi dress, jeans and tops, black mini dress, grey lurex suit, beige belted tops, wide leg pants, silk dresses, skinny jeans, denim jacket and many more.

On those who call her work controversial, she said: "We learn every day,  so I will appreciate them because they are teaching me on how to do it better"

On her role as an actor in the society, Emmanuella said: "The role of an actor in the society should not be underestimated, although its easy to get caught up with fame and celebrity, the timeless function of an actor is to take on communal pain and provide catharsis, or emotional and spiritual purification, for every person in the audience. Actors are essential to the psychic health of our world. Actors are storytellers, temporarily extinguishing our worries as they play out alternate realities on stage or screen."

On what has been her motivation, she said: "The fact that I enjoy what I do, and I get lot of support from my family and friends and most of all my savior keep me going every day. It’s great to think and feel that they love me so much, and that they will pick me every time I fall down."

On her greatest influence in your life, she says with hesitation, "My Mom!"  "She is the one who has the greatest positive influence in my life because she has done so many great things that makes me want to be like her."

She wrapped it by saying her family is the most important person in your life.
