Her entrance into the world of acting came about when she relocated to Lagos in 2013.

In an interview with Punch newspaper, Sharon recounted how her acting career commenced.

Netflix selected her, along with others, to represent Nigeria in the "The Bridgerton Affair" program held in South Africa.

Despite her success, she faced health challenges during the production of the movie remake "Glamour Girls." Sharon Ooja Egwurube's journey showcases her ascent from a chance encounter during a photo shoot to becoming a celebrated Nollywood actress with a diverse range of accomplishments.
