Meet Titi Joseph, the lead star actress of Remarkable who is making waves in Nollywood



Titi Joseph is a fast rising star and one who I can authoritatively say that in the nearest future will become one of Nollywood’s finest. Her latest movie which she starred as the lead actress, Remarkable is set to be premiered on the 27th of August 2016. The film has been highly rated by critics.

Remarkable produced by Bright Wonder of High Definition Academy is one that shows off Titi Joseph’s ingenuity and acting skill.

Titi Joseph won the best actress in the 2013 edition of HIGH DEFINITION FILM ACADEMY (HDFA)’s Script to screen.

She was one of my teachers when I studied acting at the Academy. She was passionate about acting. It was always a delight listening to her and seeing her take command of her class. Not just me all the students were pleased with her teaching style and her ability to convey what acting should be like.

Looking at her pictures in this post, one can clearly see from her facial expressions that she indeed is practising what she taught us.

Though a very modest person, it is worthy of note that she was the best graduating Mass Communication Student of Ahmadu Bello University Zaria.


I had to corner her for an interview on her latest work REMARKABLE and what the future holds in store for her.

NAME AND NICKNAME
                                scene in diary of triplets

My name is Titi Joseph. As for my nickname, people come up with all sorts of nicknames for me; Titi-lion, TIP...Tintin Joseph...the list is endless...

Q. QUALIFICATION
                                                      Scene in the film Remarkable


I have a BSC (Hons.) in Mass Communication from Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria.

Q.  WE HAVE HEARD A LOT ABOUT THE FILM REMARKABLE IN WHICH YOU ARE THE LEAD ACTRESS. ARE YOU LOOKING FORWARD TO THE PREMIERE?
                                                                          Scene in the film Remarkable 

I am so excited yet so nervous.....you know the feeling of when you have put so much into a work and you are waiting to see how it will be received....but asides from that, I am looking forward to the story achieving the aim with which it was created...to mend broken relationships and marriages.... This is personal for me....I want families to work so the children can have an ever strong pillar of support to lean on –that is family....so if REMARKABLE achieves that, then i will be more than satisfied....let me use the opportunity to urge people to join me on August 27th in Abuja to view this movie that will not just entertain but change lives.

Q. HOW DID YOU GET INTO ACTING?
                          scene in diary of triplets



I have always been fascinated by acting and the power it has to touch a life, make a difference. So I started from stage dramas in church. I went professional in 2012. That has been what it is since then.

Q. HOW MANY FILMS HAVE YOU TAKEN PART IN?
                   Scene in the film Remarkable

I have done - about twenty. Some of which are Remarkable, Broken, Diary of the triplets, Colour of rage, If only, Love circle, As crazy as it gets, A walk in the dark, Valerie and Struggles of eve. I am currently on the set of Dear Diary, a Lucky Stephen film.

Q. WHAT HAS THE EXPERIENCE BEEN LIKE?
                                                           Scene in the film Remarkable
God has been faithful, there has been down times, you know, the good, the bad and the ugly experiences yet I consider all learning processes. The most important thing is that I am still standing, I am still here, it’s been getting better and learning more of how to be a better actor has remained a watchword for me...so with God, I am confident that the soonest future is bright....i keep telling myself that my dreams are bigger than me, yeah, but not bigger than my God so i will live my dreams and FLOURISH.

Q.    WHAT IS YOUR GOAL IN LIFE?
                 
                                           Scene in a film 
My goal - to make a positive impact on lives, be the reason someone gets a better life, live right, have hope and smile. To add value when and wherever I can. 


Q.   CHALLENGES OF NOLLYWOOD
Piracy, inadequate sponsorship, originality etc. We need strong laws against piracy in the country. We need to do movies that resonate with not just us in Nigeria but the world at large so when more people seek to watch our movies, it means more money and more people might just get interested to invest...and originality like the proverbial saying that till a lion learns to tells his own story, every story will glorify the hunter, we need to look inwards, tell our own stories, our own ways...enough of imitating the whites, we are not them and they are not us.....so we can be ORIGINAL, because that is what will make us a force to reckon with.

Q.    YOU WERE ONE OF THE TEACHERS WHO TAUGHT ME
ACTING IN HIGH DEFINITION FILM ACADEMY. HOW DID YOU START TEACHING ACTING?
                                         Scene in the film Remarkable                 
I learnt acting at HDFA, and though I am an alumnus of the academy, I am also a student still and a coach....thanks to MY Coach and Director, Bright Wonder, he gave me the opportunity to teach and I realise what beauty lies in sharing the little knowledge you have with someone else.... I learn more when i teach and I enjoy every bit of it. It is something l will keep at.

Q. WHAT IS YOUR ADVICE TO ASPIRING ACTORS?
                                                 Scene in the film Remarkable    
 The Movie world is more competitive than ever, if you are      sure it is what you want - learn first, keep learning, go out there and take a step towards it, one step after another...believe in yourself so much...you must want it wholeheartedly, never forget the place of God, your own determination....and never  give up on your weaknesses...

Q. WHO DO YOU CONSIDER YOUR BEST ACTOR IN
    NOLLYWOOD?

                                  Scene in the film Remarkable
 I learn from many of them and appreciate them for making a difference.

Titilayomi, nollywood Sweet@, don't worry we are going place, Hollywood is the dreamland, just believe and it will come to pass, keep on keeping on, Baba God is your back bone, rise on

Trymore said...

It is interesting to know that Titi is a product of ABU, Zaria... no wonder the touch of excellence.
I am not much of a Nollywood person, but met Titi on a docu-drama/ PSA location where she was acting the role of both a man and a woman.

She showed so much professionalism in handling her role, the several retakes, her carriage et al. She really did look like a man while she played the role, and a complete female when she switched roles.
I am surely looking forward to seeing her in 'Remarkable'. I know she will shine there as always.
