2021 is clearly THE year of Idia Aisien. From her highly-anticipated Nollywood debut as “Nneka” in ‘Nneka the Pretty Serpent” coming soon to Netflix, to being one of the most sought-after Nigerian influencers by luxury brands, to being a philanthropist and TV host, it’s clear that Idia is unstoppable.
Featuring in not one but three stunning covers, the wildly popular and successful public figure speaks with the Editor-in-Chief of Blanck Magazine Franka Chiedu, about how she managed to pull off her first acting gig as a lead actress, how her journey through the entertainment industry has evolved, what the future holds, why she believes a woman can have it all and much more.
Describing her experience debuting as lead in a movie as humbling and remarkable – she says the experience has shown her that one can literally achieve anything they set their minds to. “You can learn a new language, and even become a different person. I am more confident than I have ever been, but it is a confidence about my ability to learn new things. Everything is also about humility— I walk into a room, and I am excited to learn and gain experience and skills from every single person I meet in that room. My mother always says that if there is an opportunity and you are prepared, then success will come—it finally makes complete sense.”
