Essence said, at the moment, a role is specifically being written for her in an upcoming soap opera.
Hear her: “I am branching out into acting. Somebody told me that he is writing a role for me in his upcoming soap opera . I’m actually a thespian too. I studied Theatre Arts at Delta State University, Abaraka. I’m a legitimate artiste in every sense of the word.”
