Actress-turned evangelist, Joy Edjeren, has explained why she had to quit acting for evangelism.

The promising actress and singer, who had featured in several movies, said she left the entertainment industry because “there is a lot of abomination on screen and behind the scene in the life of those in the entertainment industry.”

The Benue-born evangelist stated that an encounter with Jesus Christ “opened my eyes.”

“It was pleasant in that many people respected me and doors were opening to me as I believe my talent was taking me to places, but somehow, it seems as if an upper hand kept redirecting me away from it.

“I did not understand why until my encounter with the Lord,” she said while describing her experience in the industry.

She said since she left the industry she has ministered in outreaches and has been engaged in Christian productions.

Edjeren said she never dreamt of becoming an author but succumbed to writing a book.

The book: “The birth and death of JJ Bunny,” captures her experience in the entertainment industry.

The evangelist, popularly called JJ Bunny, who is based in America with her family, said she was convinced the book will impact many lives.

Some of the movies she featured in include: The other side of love’ with Ramsey Nouah; Paparazzi with Van Vicker and The governor’s gift with Jim Iyke and Tonto Dike.

She was rated as one of Nollywood’s finest actress for three to five years.

JJ Bunny as she is popularly called now had to leave the industry when the ovation for her was loudest.

Her exit from the entertainment industry was shocking, leaving her fans high and dry.
