Born to a Nigerian family, with two older brothers and a younger one, Annie survived the separation of her parents at the tender age of ten. Her mother used to run the household while her father was employed at Mobil.
The children stayed with their mother after the divorce. Their life was difficult, and so it happened that Annie’s younger brother died of tuberculosis. The future actress was forced to start working very early, even before going to university.
