Movie producer and actress, Elizabeth Anjorin aka Lizzy Anjorin is one of Nollywood’s most sought after Yoruba actress. Business savvy Lizzy recently opened up to Entertainer on her career and her new project, Owo Naira Bet.
I have been doing fine despite the fact that the industry has been badly affected by piracy and all that. I thank God every day.
(Laughter) If I have so much money I won’t be travelling out so often. I travel out so often because I have to hustle.
Hmmm… it has affected me too-oo. Or do you want me to say it has not affected me so that ‘boys’ can come and rob me (laughter). It is affecting all of us.
Wow! That is Owo Naira Bet.
Recently I discovered that a lot of Nigerians youths are engaging in sports betting and they hit so much money sometimes even running into millions of naira but after a few months, you see them back on the streets doing nothing. The message is that people should learn to invest; they can invest part of this money and save for the rainy day. Yes, life is a gamble in itself but we need to learn how to save for the rainy day and invest.
I am still a virgin (laughter). That would be when I grow up. Any questions about that?
It is God I must say.
In the morning I exercise and take fruits. In the afternoon I eat like a queen and in the evening, I take something very small.
None, I am good and I am grateful.
No, that is not the real me.
This is the real me. What you see on screen is what I mimic. I I can easily go into any cha acter and come back to my normal self. As an artiste you must be able to have your own personal life but when on set, immediately you hear ‘action’, you switch to the character you are depicting and after you are done you come back to your normal self immediately.
I am also a designer. I design most of my wears. I have a clothes line.
