Singer and actress Cindy Sanyu, who featured in the movie Bella where she played Bella, a village girl fresh in the city has revealed that after the movie, getting out of the character was a challenge. “I had the script for like a year. I learnt to act like broke people but getting out of that character was hard. I went home still acting like Bela and my daughter kept wondering why I was speaking a certain way,” she says.
The movie saw the Cindy nominated for Best female actress at last year’s Africa Magic Viewers’ Choice Awards (AMVCAs) in Nigeria. She says she didn’t know why she was nominated until they told her it was because she is such a high-profile person to have humbled herself to fit in the character.
Cindy lost the award to celebrated Nigerian actress Omotola Jalade.
However, she notes that she loves taking on challenges that after the project, her teeth got dirty yet she actually brushes twice everyday with the best oral hygiene products. Her skin got ruined from the dirt and the dress that was so dirty.
