During her interview with Vanguard, Ashmusy was asked “How did you dive into content creating?” She said:

I wanted to act so bad. I knew I was an actor, I knew I was good, had the talent, the passion, everything was there and I could kill any role you give me absolutely. So then I started 2010 to go to all the casting that was happening all around Lagos State. From Ikeja to Sango-Ota. Me and bike ehn, I dey enter bike that time. I can go to like six auditions on the same day.

I would go and I would act very well and I knew I killed it. But most times, they would not call me back. Those people, they already knew who had the role already, I’m just realizing that lately. So later, when I now got into school which was Madonna University, my school was that kind of ‘prison university’ so I was stuck in school.

When I was stuck in school, I had to focus on my school cuz I tried to do well. That’s when they were now calling me for the Nollywood roles but then I was busy that time. Even when I came out of school that time during holiday periods, I would do maybe one or two jobs, but it was a bit humiliating. Sometimes, it’s a bit humiliating and stressful for upcomers.

So I figured I’d rather go into content creating. That’s when skits were just coming up, and just booming as well. Then I just decided to go through that style cuz after all skit is also acting. And that’s how I got into content creating.

The name Ashmusy, where did it come from?

I am Amarachi Amusi, that’s my full name. I am from Enugu State and the name Ashmusy was coined from Ashley Amusi. It’s not from Amara, it’s from Ashley. Ashley Amusi. So the Ashley is actually an English name I gave to myself. My parents gave me Blessing but then I just saw every Tom, Dick, and Harry bearing that Blessing, I said no! I said no, I will go for Ashley (laughs). So I gave myself my desired name.
