April 8, 2015 – Fathia Balogun: I Didn’t Pass JAMB Exam Because Of Poor Mathematics Score

In an exclusive interview with The Nation, Nollywood actress and filmmaker Fathia Balogun Williams said her failure to pass Joint Admissions & Matriculation Board, JAMB exam prevented her from achieving her academic goals.

Fathia who said she wished to become a lawyer revealed why she quit law and how she joined Nollywood in 2000.

In her words:

“So, I went to study diploma in Law at Kwara State Polytechnic, Ilorin. But that one too became too wide for me, the reading was getting too much. I left and travelled to the UK. By that time, I had been introduced to acting.

“A brother and family friend introduced me to the late veteran actor, Kokonsari. Along the line, I met the likes of Dele Odule, Toyin Adegbola, the late Ireti Adekola and many others. But I started fully when I returned to Nigeria in 2000.”
