She claimed that her parents had urged her to act in a way that honored her family's history. The actress said:

"I grew up in New York, born and raised with my siblings and my parents. And even though I grew up there, I grew up in a very Naija household. Even outside the house, it's like, 'Remember who your family is and behave yourself, but yeah, it was a beautiful upbringing".

According to Osas, her journey into acting began at 13, when she was introduced to acting classes through a modeling school scholarship as she battled low self-esteem. Osas continues:

"I had to do a lot of convincing and crying, but I think I'm also stubborn; I'm a strong-headed individual when I want something.

"I had low self-esteem growing up, and they put me in modeling school. I went through that experience, and after that, the president of that school offered me a scholarship to take acting classes. I wasn't exposed to acting till I was 13, then I took my first acting class, and I never turned back since, and I was like, 'What is this? I want to indulge in this craft of acting.' So I've never turned back since."
