“Most of the successful actors and actresses didn’t necessarily go to film schools or study Theatre arts, although I’m not saying it’s not useful studying the profession, but if your passion and desire to learn on the job is high, with hardwork you’ll get to the peak of your career in no time and you’ll be excellent at it too. I just finished writing my final papers a few days back. So I’m battle ready to take on the industry fully. That’s not to say I won’t still embark on some of training and education in filmmaking in the near future.”

Speaking about why she built the house for her parents Chizzy Alichi said,

The building for my parents was a dream comes true. I saved for it from when I was in school. I denied myself a lot of things but today, I’m so happy. My father said he can now die a happy man cos he worked all his life for it and he couldn’t achieve it. In his wildest imagination, he didn’t dream that something like that will be in his compound cos our compound was almost like a refuse dump before I built the house. I thank God. I came from a poor family but I was determined to make it through hard work. I was determined to make my family and myself proud. I didn’t want my background to discourage me. I didn’t like the way we always stayed back in Enugu during Christmas, while my friends would travel out of town and come back to tell me how they had enjoyed their holiday in the village.”

“Secondly, my dad had worked and saved all his life to build a good house for us. I am his favourite, so I was determined to make him happy. So, I started saving. I had worked in several outfits in Enugu before joining the movie industry. I actually starved and saved money to build my parents a befitting house. I’m a family girl, so I just like to carry my family along.”
“Before the completion of the house, I first moved my parents from a one-room apartment in a slum to a 3-bedroom flat in the heart of Enugu city before finally building a house for them in the village.”
