“Why I suddenly quit Nollywood 3 years ago” – BBNaija star Ifu Ennada


Former Big Brother Naija housemate, Ifu Ennada, has revealed the reasons behind her decision to quit acting three years ago.

In a recent interview with Punch, the brand influencer and beauty entrepreneur shared the factors that led to her sudden departure from the Nigerian movie industry.

According to Ifu Ennada, she chose to take a break from acting in order to focus on her business.

She, however, noted that now that her company has the required system and structure in place, she intends to go back into acting.

“I have not been acting for about three years now. I decided to take a break to focus on my business. I wanted something that would fit my lifestyle, which I would be able to take a break from.

As an actress, one cannot do that. But, if one has a business, one can always do whatever one wants want. I could be away from my business for about a month and still be making money. Now that I have a system and structure, I intend to get back to acting. I actually have a project coming up with a producer, Martins Gbados, and hopefully, we would start this year.

Aside from that, I also want to produce my own feature film. In 2016, I produced a short film, and that was even before I went for BBN. It got me an award or two, and that was when I did not have as much resources as I do now. By next year, I intend to produce a film. I already have the story; I am just trying to get my budget right.” She said.

On why she ventured into skincare business , Ifu Ennada said,

“The reason I got into skincare was that I had a friend who was supposedly a cosmetologist from Lagos, and he talked about how my skin needed to be glowing. He gave me all sorts of product that I went into the Big Brother house with, but they damaged my skin badly and I developed cystic acne, which made me depressed. I used to cry on my bed. I tried different ways to get my skin cleared but there was no result.”
