Veteran Nollywood actress, Hilda Dokubo, who recently bagged a doctorate in Literature at the Institute International des Technologies et de Management, Lome, Togo, has come to reveal an amazing part of her life.
In a recent interview with GODFREY GEORGE Hilda Dokubo shared how she has been able to achieve this feat despite being a Nigerian-based filmmaker and mother. You just bagged a doctorate in Literature from a college in Togo. How does it feel adding this extra feather to your cap? I truly don’t know, but I just know it is an extra responsibility. Anytime I get anything, I always say to people that for every new gift or addition to life or its achievement, it is an extra responsibility. It is something that places me again before people and gives me extra tasks. I am so grateful to God for this opportunity. It is a call to more work.

How were you able to combine schooling with acting and parenting? The key to success is not very far. It is in one’s ability to connect and stay committed and consistent in what one believes in. Don’t take your eyes off the goal. Are you going to meet challenges? Yes. Is it going to be daunting and tasking? Yes. You may be happy on some days and not be happy on other days but if you stay committed and focused on what you are doing, it will happen. Education is up the ladder for me. Anybody who knows me knows that I love education a lot. In fact, people mock me alot. Truly, I love to read, write and get some extra knowledge every day. There is no overload of knowledge.

Did your relationship with family and friends not suffer since you had to shuffle Togo and Nigeria? About relating with people, it has been constant work. Acting is that profession that I describe as the most disciplined profession. It makes one an expert on human relationships. Every character we play as actors is a human life somewhere. In playing that life, you have to find the connection between that life and the other life on that stage or screen. Now, in doing that, you have to understand how human beings relate to themselves and how they relate to others and their environment.
