A burgeoning Nigerian actress and commercial model, rumors suggest Jasmine may have pursued a law degree alongside her endeavors in content creation. She notably appeared in the popular Nigerian TV series 'Superstory Monica'.

In 2022, Jasmine entered into matrimony with her partner based in the UK. However, the marriage was short-lived, lasting only nine months, as she discovered her ex-husband had concealed crucial information about his age and family status.

Finding solace in love once more, Jasmine is said to have been engaged to fellow Nollywood actor Ken Erics.
