Here are excerpts from the chat;
It seems most actresses are going into fashion business, why did you join the trend?
I didn’t join any trend. I have always had love for fashion and beauty even before I became an actor. Growing up, before I went out, I’d dress up and undress about 20 times until I find the perfect outfit for whatever event I was going for. It was a ritual and it continued till date. So, it’s only normal that I’m into fashion business today.
We see the way you flaunt what you got on social media, most especially Instagram, do you often receive negative comments? If you do, how do you handle them?
I actually don’t pay attention to negative comments. But do you mean flaunting my clothes? It’s important I do that for the growth of my business.
Not clothes actually but your backside…
Oh that! Do you call it flaunting? For real? I don’t think so…
You know some men drool over big backsides; can you recall any embarrassing moment concerning this?
Please can we not talk about ass? Thank you.
Would you say you are fulfilled as an actress?
How can I be fulfilled when I’ve barely started? I am not fulfilled o, still hungry for more.
Were you at any point sexually harassed?
I wasn’t and never still. I had the right platform from Royal Arts Academy. That made it easy for me.
Have you always wanted to be an actress?
Yes, I have always wanted to be an actress. I knew it from my excessive watching of Nollywood movies during holidays. Everyday, my dad used to give me money back then, to rent movies… and everyone in my neighbourhood knew I was obsessed with movies. So, later when they started watching my movies, it was normal to them.
If you aren’t in the entertainment industry what else would you have been doing?
I haven’t actually thought of what else I could have done aside entertainment, because right from time, entertainment had always been on my mind; even though, my daddy wanted to force law on me at some point.
What kind of role will Didi reject playing?
It’s certainly going to be nude role. Over-exposing roles aren’t for me.
Can you date or marry an entertainer?
I can’t say who I can marry or who I can’t marry. Whoever God says is mine, is mine, be he an entertainer, engineer, doctor or pastor. My kind of man must be God-fearing. He must be respectful and caring, with a little bad boy character, obviously not a bore, a man that can love me right.
What does love mean to you?
To me, love means respect, care, understanding, patience, tolerance and trust.
