Nollywood actress, wife and mother Annie Idibia reflected on her childhood times speaking as a Guest speaker at the Eve secondary school series. She revealed to the students that she used to sell pepper soup with her mother to make end meet, and pay her way through school. Now she’s a successful actress, a mother of two and wife of the famous superstar singer 2face Idibia.
In her words:
“I want you all to follow your dreams. I don’t want you to feel like the next person is more privileged than you and use that as an excuse for failure. I had no break time when I was in secondary school because I had to go to the market during breaks to buy pepper soup things from the market and put in the fridge for my mom to cook and sell in the evening. And after school I would assist her in selling. I had to do that because that was how I and my brothers school fees were paid. Today I am living my dream.”
