Nollywood actress, Shaffy Bello has relived memories of the prices she had paid while chasing her dream of becoming an actress back home.
The actress grew up in the United States, where she completed her education before returning to the country.
In a recent chat with Chude Jideonwo, the 51-year old actress cum singer also revealed why she returned to Nigeria after her long sojourn in the United States.
She said, “I wanted to spread my wings. I felt like I was pregnant and I couldn’t have a child. I felt like my wings were sort of closed in and I was boxed in and I needed more, my soul needed more. I was yearning for more but I didn’t realize what kind of sacrifice would come with wanting more and going for what you want, after all you have to pay some price. I paid the price of having a connection with my children there. Coming to Nigeria, I would stay in my room and cry all day long asking myself what am I doing, what am I doing?”
