Avan praised her mentors in the movie industry for the opportunity that she has been given to showcase her prowess in the movie world.

The Benin born star recalled that her success made possible by the string of positives that she has been able to achieve despite the stiff competition existing in the industry.

She told Sunday Vanguard: “My experience in Nollywood would last me a lifetime. It has been worth the while.

“I must give kudos to Nollywood top shots like Amen Imasuen for their support in ensuring that I am distinguished as a brand.

“Most of my works are done in such a manner that movie buffs will always have something positive to say about them.”

Avan is the brain behind the lovely costumes used in top-of-the-range blockbusters like ‘Sunburn’, ‘Mother’s Love’, ‘Oghe’(a Benin language movie) and ‘Iwin Doctor’.
