Host: when did you become an actress?
Benedicta: I am an actress from childhood. At early age of my life, I belong to our church’s social group where acting dramas was our key role. At that early stage of life, we were able to personified almost all bible characters. My zeal for acting can not be quantified, i had always wanted to become an actress and never envisaged my self in any other profession.
Host: How did you come about the group, Mr blocus comedy?
Benedicta: at first when my parent discouraged me from becoming a full blown actress, I started a job to put food on our table. Early this year to my surprise, my mom told me that they made a mistake for not welcoming the choice of my aspiration which is acting. She went ahead to make refference to Mark Angel Comedy where little emmanuela was fully supported as a child actress. My mom’s statement sent cold through my spine. I left for my room to ponder about it. The next day I told my friend, Eric felix about forming a comedy group so we can entertain people around the globe. Eric is a comic friend, he welcomed the notion and that is how we started.
Host: How id you come about the name, mr blocus ?
Benedicta: I got the name from a nollywood movie titled “Congo dance”. In that movie, a lady could not pronounce some one’s name properly and all she could pronounce is “mr blocus ” which sounds so funny. I felt such rare nomenclature could make us special so I decided to go for the name. Eventually, Eric felix fell in love with the name and even agree to bear the name in our skits.
Host: How do you see your self in the next three years?
Benedicta: I see my self and the group as a full blown comedy group that will entertain the whole world. A group that will be known for making the sorrowful to smile.
