How I got my twin babies- Movie producer, Emem Isong shares
By Rita Chioma
In May 2016, celebrated Nollywood film-maker, Emem Isong, welcomed a set of twins with her Camerounian husband, Akama Midodi.
As working mother, who is always engrossed with movie productions and training of aspiring actors, Isong had to face the challenge of marrying both motherhood and career perfectly.
Revealing how she copes the proud mother of 3 said: “Motherhood hasn’t been easy, it slowed down my productions a bit because to me family comes first; I have to place my priorities right. But I do the best I can to see that I balance both.
Adding to that, I also have competent hands at home in taking care of the kids while I do my movies.”
When asked if she had a foresight that she would have a set of twin , the veteran film-maker revealed she never saw it coming her way.
“Of course I wasn’t expecting that I’d have twins. I used to jokingly wish for twins, but I never knew it would come to pass. In fact, when the doctors informed me of them, I was so shocked. I was speechless for a while, because we don’t have twins in my family but my husband’s family has twins. Honestly, I didn’t know it would get to me.
However, I was super excited about the news; who wouldn’t want double blessing?
I had a boy before the twins came, now, I have experienced the birth of a child and that of two babies at same time,” she said.
