Today we host one of the few actresses that are working hard and doing everything to keep entertainment alive in Cameroon. She is none other than the Kamer-Naija Diva Philldela Yve. This beautiful and hard working yet humble lady has starred in over thirty movies in Nollywood and plans on working in the Cameroon film industry as well. We were able to hook up with her for a lil chit-chat and here is what she had to tell u. Grab some popcorn and enjoy.
Hello beautiful, u welcome to our platform,
Philldela: Answer: Awwww! It’s my delight darling, thank u for hosting me.
Question: First we would like you to give us a brief intro; tell us who you are in two sentences.
Philldela: I’m Philldella Yve. I have a double indentity background – Cameroon and Nigeria and based in Lagos. I’m a young up-and-coming actress in Nollywood, model and an eventual TV show host.
Question: What inspired you to take on this craft?
Philldela: I had always dreamt of being an actress since I was a child. After watching cartoons on TV, an habitual component of my life, I would go to the mirror and try to mimic them. I grew up developing this uncontrollable attachment to acting and hoping I would turn these dreams into reality some day. Nothing else attracted my attention and until the logical fulfillment, I kept boiling with inspiration. I was born to act. It’s my craft.
Question: If you were given the choice to co-star in a movie with a Cameroonian actor, who will it be?
Philldela: That would be a difficult thing to do, but I won’t waste any time in stating emphatically that I would choose to work with all of them! Every single Cameroonian actor is endowed with talent and it becomes difficult to pick one and not the others. I prefer to to be greedy by desiring all these guys – hahahahaha! They’re all great actors.
Question: Recently a voice note went viral on Whatsapp, where in a girl who was anonymous to us said it was a right for a boy to take care of his girlfriend and shower them with expensive gifts. What is your opinion on that?
Philldela: Wow! I’d turn my back on this question if I had my way, trust me – hahahaha! I could crash in the net of my brothers with my opinion. But since I must attempt an answer, I expect a man to care and support his girl. However, I wouldn’t expect a fellow sister to depend entirely on a man for all her needs.
Question: Chocolates or ice cream which would you go for?
Philldela: I like ice cream but nothing would replace my chocolate. I just love it – hahahhahaha!
Question: What advice would you give to young upcoming actresses?
Philldela: I don’t think I am in the right position to advise upcoming actresses because I’m one myself. However, if I were to give my opinion as a budding actress, it would be to put GOD FIrST in every single thing they do no matter what. Secondly, accept correction, no matter how harshly it is put. Look beyond the hurt and pick the lesson. Finally, support every project by your colleagues irrespective of your involvement or absence in them. For promotion purposes, like stuff that are posted on social media and comment on them, share it! Such display of selflessness would go a long way in boosting your own growth.
Thank you for taking out time to chit-chat with us …
Philldela: The pleasure was entirely mine. Thanks a million for hosting me. Lots of love!
