Award-winning Whiskey Mistress Dancer, Peter Martina has disclosed that she is working hard to open one of the most entertaining and biggest dancing studio in Abuja.
She urged young girls to take the opportunity of the Nigerian entertainment industry and utilize their potential saying that “for you to go far in life, you must be determined, focused, and hardworking, women should not see men as their providers.”
Martina in a chat with journalists in Abuja said that she was working on opening a big dance studio in Abuja where people can learn the art of dance.
“Everything starts with God and our determination as well, once you are determined, there is nothing you won’t achieve. You have to take a step at a time, but then I believe that with my consistency and with my current team, I can actualize my dreams by having the biggest dance studio in Abuja with branches in other states.”
Asked if she has shared this with her boss, she said, “Mrs. Adenike Isi Adeeko is the type of boss that encourages you to dream big, and she has put this big dream in my head.
“She encourages us not to pay attention to small things, because those big ones that people are having, you can have as well because they don’t have two heads and if you set your mind to it, you are going to have it.
“I have spoken to her about being a partner with her and she said she wouldn’t mind partnering with me and we could start something together.”
Speaking on what motivated her about dancing she explained that, “right from when I was little, I loved to dance and I won a series of awards at little age and was always happy.
“Dancing keeps me going and it takes my mind off many things like worries, stress and so many ups and downs and some personal problems. “
Speaking on her experience, she said, “I didn’t start with nightlife, I started working in an eatery because I know how to cook and make snacks before moving to Abuja, and here (Abuja) I worked as a receptionist in a hotel, I worked as a housekeeper as well. I had to do this to survive because I am the type that doesn’t rely on men to survive.
“I have worked at Tiki Cultures owned by my current boss, and now working with her at Whiskey Mistress. She’s my first employer as a dancer.”
Explaining her journey at Whiskey Mistress, she stated that it has shaped her life because of the kind of boss she has.
She said, “my boss is very kind, good to work with and she always likes to bring you close and encourage you. She would always tell you that I would not give you money, but she will teach you how to make money and you can also teach others so others can benefit from you and everything I have achieved so far, I am glad to be here.”
