Eucharia Anunobi has done well as an actress, model and worker in the vineyard of God. Her decision to pursue her dream against the will of her father, who wanted to study law, seemingly changed her life story forever and the ‘Glamor Girls’ star can best put it.
The actress went down memory lane recently recalling how her stubbornness and resilience got her to where she is today.
According to her, she had a constant battle with her father, after the latter wanted her to study law against her wish, as she chose to venture into the entertainment industry.
While her father insisted that the actress should study law, Anunobi, who read English in her first grade at the University of Nigeria, Nsukka, said she stood firm and maintained that she would follow her dream despite all the odds. At the end of it all, her father sold softly, as she got her way. And today, his stubbornness has paid off.
She relates: “Growing up, my father wanted me to study law, but I chose to go into the entertainment industry. My stood firm while I also stood firm. At the end of the day, my dream of becoming an artist annulled his. “
“And today, I am more blessed than ever as a minister of the gospel, model and movie star.”
“To me, I am not just a superstar known throughout Africa and beyond. But I am also a minister of the gospel. So our parents used to say that if you are in the entertainment industry, you are totally lost and you would be useless in life. I’ve proved them wrong and I’m still proving that you can be in the entertainment industry and still be responsible. “
Anunobi made this shocking revelation, following the role she played in a newly released high school musical film, “Loud (Live Out Ur Dream),” which is intended to reassure teens that their dreams are still valid.
Commenting on the film, which is from the stables of Ebawa Production and directed by Umanu Elijah, Apostle Eucharia Anunobi said that the film aims to correct the norm that artists are useless people as perceived by many parents and guidance.
However, the ‘Glamor Girls’ star urged parents to allow their children to follow their dreams without influence from them. “It is time for parents to allow their children to make their dreams come true. They can guide, protect and support them, as well as ensure that they do not derail in life. They have to allow their children to live their dreams, which is what the movie is about. “
