Daniel Effiong Covers MC! Magazine Jan. – Mar. 2021 Issue, Talks Vulnerability, Happiness, Fulfilment & Self-Love
In a new issue of MC! Magazine, Nollywood actor, Daniel Effiong stands tall as cover star, discussing his career, marriage, dreams and journey through corporate life to filmmaking.
Discussing his journey in Nollywood which hasn’t been the easiest, he explained that not many people imagined he would be where he is today. He said though he had a background in chemical engineering, he made the switch to Nollywood when he felt he wasn’t fulfilled in the oil and gas industry.
“My first lead role in the industry was on the web series “Goddamn it’s Monday” by Chioma Onyenwe and then my big break came on yet another web series, Ndani TV’s ‘Gidi Up’, from there I’ve grown in leaps and bounds“, he told the magazine.
Speaking on his experience working alongside his wife, Toyosi Philips, in the same industry, he said,
“I wouldn’t say it has been easy working alongside my wife, we have been together just three years so I still have quite a lot to learn. We tend to have our unique approach to things but we compliment ourselves very well.”
