irregularities in my body that I cannot control, I
will do it."

Njama has revealed her reasons for specially caring for
children. She made this know a couple of days ago when
she celebrated her birthday at Karu Children's Home.
"When growing, my mum said that when I was
younger I was always carrying children of my age,
I always try to lift them. So I think that is where I
got the love from. And I'm this kind of person
that has joy when I have children around me or
when I'm around children. It is something that
has been within ever since. It's not like I'm just
starting doing this, I have been doing it over the
years. I feel very relaxed blessed and free with
She also said further,
"It has always been my tradition and I will keep
doing it. They are the best people you can
celebrate your birthday with. They bring so much
joy to you and they are all innocent children and
clean-hearted people who would genuinely share
your cake and have fun with you. It always has to
be the children."
One of the things the beautiful actress does for children
include giving scholarship and attending to their daily
needs on a regular basis.
She emphasized that every year, she chooses five
friends who help in the yearly sponsorship of these
"Every year, I pick up five friends and I call them
volunteers. These friends will take care of a child
each for a year. I picked five in Lagos and I was
able to get three in Abuja. But it is for a year. If
they want to go further, fine but I pick them for a
year. That is just what we do to assist the child.
It is just like you assisting the child, most of us
enjoy doing it. Most of my friends during our
spare time come see the children," she concluded.

put on ground. My coming back into the industry by
God's grace will not be a problem, and I'm not going to
find it difficult, because I know I'm going to come back.
In fact, I have fully bounced back for good. And with
time, everyone would surely see that Grace is back. The
only issue is my baby who is already closing to two years
now but my loving mother can always take care of him
for me whenever I need to be out of town for shooting,''
