I was born in Lagos but I was brought up in Delta State. I’m from Delta State, Ogwashiku precisely.
I’m currently studying Mass Communication because of my passion for acting and the entertainment industry at large.
How did you get into Nollywood?
I started acting at a very tender age. I started acting at the age of Six, through the help of my mother and support of my family and my mother’s guidance. She went all way out to make sure I was in the limelight.
Any challenge early in your career?
I remember when I was in a movie set and they said Oh Regina you have to cry in this scene. And I couldn’t cry because I wasn’t perfect in acting. The producer called my mother… And was like, Hello Rita come and take your daughter away from this set. She doesn’t know how to act film. She can’t cry. She can’t deliver her lines. She can’t do this.
My mother was crying. She called me and was like, “Mama please, please you can do it. Think of everything that has happened to us. You know where you are going to. Mama just try. You can. And I started crying. So then I filmed. Many producers would abuse me and my mother would take the blame just so that she can see me get there.
How were you able to build your brand?
I have always dreamed to become a celebrity. To be someone the world will appreciate and recognize. So I would always put in so much effort. I will work day and night, under the rain, sun to make sure that I get there.

Do you even know how to cook?

Why are you so drawn to children?
I grew up too fast. I didn’t have the have the opportunity all the times to explore like other kids would. I never had friends. There was no one to mingle with. I always found myself in the midst of adults trying to read scripts, kept on reading scripts, or reading my books and trying to make ends meet. I have been an adult since childhood. So that’s why I love kids. That’s why I am passionate about children. That’s why I love being around them, to have that feeling of being a child. The smile I see on their faces makes me happy. To make sure that they are fine. You know this feeling of having children around you gives you this feeling that you can’t explain. Because kids on their own, they have this happiness they bring to you. A feeling of joy.
