I had my breakthrough in 2015- Destiny Etiko reveals

Actress Destiny Etiko has revealed that her major breakthrough came in 2015 after making cameo appearances and taking up minor roles in previous movies.

Etiko revealed this while interacting with the PUNCH recently amidst disclosing how her mother who used to be an actress paved the way for her to probably continue from where she stopped.

“My mother, Eucharia Etiko, started acting in 2004. She did not act in major roles and her acting career lasted for just three and half years because it was difficult for her to go on set and come back at night to attend to her family.

Whenever we were on holidays, my mum would ask me to follow her and hold her bag whenever she was shooting. I followed her on three occasions and I featured in some cameo roles. I had minor roles as an adult too but I finally got a better role in 2012. 2015 was my breakthrough year as I started receiving regular calls from people who wanted to feature me in their films.”

The actress also stated that her childhood was tough.

She said, “Growing up was not easy. My father was a headmaster doing well and at some point, he worked with a firm as a treasurer where he was accused of theft after the money he was asked to take to the bank was stolen by armed robbers who attacked him on his way.

My father had to pay for money he never took. It was an issue as we had to move out from the flat we were living in to a ‘public’ house. My mother had stopped acting and we started living off the proceeds of the shop my father opened for her,” she said recently in an interview with the PUNCH.
