Please tell our readers a bit about yourself.
My name is Grace Amah, from Ebunwana Edda Afikpo South L.G.A. in Ebonyi State, first of four children and my parents very much alive.
You disappeared for a while. What happened?
I did not really disappear but you know when it comes to family matters, you do not combine or mix up things at a time. Like the Bible acknowledges in the book of Ecclesiastes, there is time for everything. So there was a time for me to conceive and raise my baby and that was what happened. Now my son is about two years I could comfortably return to the scene. Apart from that, before now, I have featured in some movies since I returned from the UK.
You are looking even more stunning now after having your baby. Kindly share with our readers the secret.
Well thank God and thank you for your compliments. I think my nature is a gift from God and secondly is to know how to maintain a gift of nature. I try to keep myself, and I thank God for His kindness and mercy. Also I make sure to always be happy no matter the challenges. One has to learn how to lean on God and not human beings. If you have peace of mind, you will surely have peace of the body as well.
What are you working on this time?
I am working on keeping myself and family in love, peace and God’s protection. On the side of my profession, I have a lot of offers waiting out there for roles in the movies and other things. Sooner than later, everyone will know that I have fully returned.
Some people quit acting after marriage. What do you think will be the reason for you to quit acting?
It is not always the case that those who got into marriage do not act again. Many of my colleagues who are married and have even put to bed are still acting. So I have not stopped acting. I only took a break for family matters and I am back. However, there is nothing wrong if someone in the profession marries and the husband finds something different for the person. After all what is paramount is peace at home.
So many people believe that some people get jobs not by merit but by sleeping around. Have you experienced such embarrassment before?
I do not talk about what I do not know. I have never been desperate to get a role in a movie and so there is no man who will use self-exploitation as bait to give me a role. Those who are desperate may fall into such temptation but I have not witnessed it.
How do you manage home and job at the same time?
It is not a big thing for me to manage my home and work, although it could be challenging sometimes but I think it is a matter of understanding between the man and the woman. So for me there is no conflict in the home management and my profession. I am able to manage both successfully. It only requires prayers and understanding. God is able all the time.
How do you manage to stay away from Scandals?
There is difference between real scandal and manmade scandals. I have not had any serious scandal because I have tried to keep to the rules of the game. But sometime, people will try to manufacture scandals to score a point. I do not bother myself with such scandals but if there’s anyone, I will surely address it. For the issues or controversies people made up about my son and paternity were just figments of the imagination of the makers.
What will be your advice to someone who wants to join Nollywood?
To be focused and know what they want and face it without distractions. What will be theirs will be theirs and nobody will take it away from them. They need to know that tomorrow holds better future for them, and with prayers, determination and focus they will get to the top. Above all they must also remember that all that glitters sometimes are not gold.
Words to your fans?
To my fans, I love them all. Thank you all for your love and support.
Nollywoodgossip wishes you the best.
Thank you so much Delia for having me. Thanks Nollywoodgossip.
