Challenges not unique to the film industry
Challenges are same for women trying to carve a niche for herself in any career. However, one of their unique challenges was the reluctance of their colleagues to take them seriously, because girls joined the industry as young adults.
Everyone saw them growing into the women they are now, and they finally got over that.

It may appear easy for people to believe that what distinguishes them in the movie industry is simply that they are identical twins, but that’s not so true because there are several other twins out there in the industry.
It may not appear obvious, but our patience, integrity, tenacity and perseverance set us apart in the entertainment industry as a whole.

In general, they have been in more than fifty movies, individually and collectively, and out of that figure, It will mention five that were girls growth child and their production. Divine Twins, which featured Patience Ozokwo, Bruno Iwuoha, Geraldine Ekeocha (God rest her soul). Then, Love and Cash, which featured Tony Umez, Francis Duru, Rita Edochi. Beloved Twins is a sequel to Divine Twins. Fashion Police featured Bishop Ime Umoh, known as Okon, Frank Artus and Mather Ankoma from Ghana, Denrele Edun, Karen Igho, Ruth Kadiri, Prince Malum, T.T Temple, Maureen Okpoko, etc. And now, “Unknown Caller,” the blockbuster.
It is suspense-filled; if you don’t go and watch the movie, you can never unravel anything about it.
Twins have worked with almost all the high profile actors who know their onions, and they all have so much respect for them, both cast and crew.
Where they see their career
In five years, Onyia and Amaka would have successfully merged Hollywood with Nollywood both as directors, producers, actors, distributors, and investors. They are high profile players, well-known public figures, movie investors and producers, distributors, prolific writers, role models and business owners.
Girls might not own an airline business for now but hopefully soon, but we currently run a hair salon in Oniru, and we are employing many creative young Nigerians. We take pride in Twins Saloon, Oniru, Lagos.
They are women of substance, entrepreneurs, and lovers of God, but that doesn’t mean in any way that if you cross us, twins will just say God bless you; they stand up for each other.
Girls are compassionate like Christ, and all who have had dealings with them in the past can attest to that, but if you take our good heart for granted, twins can flog with the whip like Jesus at the temple too.
Mentors and inspiration
Their instructors include their mom and dad, Reverend and Evangelist Mrs. Felicia and Daniel Nwokike Idenyi, the best parents anyone can have, and the mentor to so many others that are not from their loins; so, girls are privileged.
Other role models are Omotola Jalade Ekeinde, Mitchel Obama both successful career women, holding their home together; it’s not common and twins admire that so much.
