She also worked with the popular Nollywood veteran Bimbo Oshin just to further boost her acting career. While preparing to make her entrance into Nollywood, Eno got the chance to model in the commercial Akwa Fresh Launch project that was organized by Royalty Group.
Acting as a profession for Ebenezar Eno became a reality in 2016 after a few months of training with Hilda Dokubo. Her first time on stage was on June 15, 2016. She, however, came into the limelight after appearing as ‘Ezinne’ in the Africa Magic series, Eve.
