My name is Joseph Benjamin, an actor and presenter of the soar-away music talent show, MTN Project Fame. Nothing beats being famous and appreciated for one’s job. I know. However, I didn’t just wake up one day and say I want to be one of African cinema’s leading faces.
I worked hard and diligently pursued my dreams.Apart from God’s special grace on me, I met a lot of stars and achievers that I used to admire and adulate who told me that I could do it, that I could be anything I set my sights on. Dear friend, those encouraging words spurred me to reach for the stratosphere. I am not where I envisioned that I’d be professionally (Hello, Hollywood is still there to conquer), but I am not where I used to be a few years back. That is why I don’t shy away from imparting my success nuggets on those who look up to me.
And that is why I shall be in Port Harcourt on Children’s Day, May 27th for the Best of Nollywood Celebrity Reading session with secondary school students with some of my colleagues like Alex Ekubo, Doris Simeon, OC Ukeje, Yomi Fash Lanso, Mercy Aigbe, Ibinabo Fiberesima, Dayo Amusa, Sylva Oluchi and Tamara Eteimo. As you wish us a successful outing, we wish you also the best that life has on offe
