The 41-year-old actress while responding to questions on sex and sexuality in Africa revealed that while the act is personal, she’s not a fan of the hypocritical veil that people so often shroud it with.
She also talks about being a screen slay queen, dating in her 40s, sex and sexuality in Africa as it affects her, irrespective of the fact that she is a known powerful figure in Nollywood.
“You know we have a hush-hush attitude towards sex in Nigeria. For me, sex is personal and not really something you should be screaming to others about; but, on the other hand, I don’t like that we are so hypocritical about [it]. We act like nobody is having sex but that is totally not the case.
“We worked really hard on , so I am so happy about the record nominations. We ended up winning five awards that night including my ‘Best Actress’ award. Thanks to the fans that voted, I tell you. It was so surreal because I was backstage waiting to present an award and did not know that it was time for my category.
“Once I heard them announcing the nominees, my heart was beating so fast, I thought I would faint. When I heard my name, it took everything within me not to cry.
“You don’t understand how humbling it is to be working on these kinds of projects after 19 years in the industry. I want to commend Izu Ojukwu and Adonai Owiriwa for believing in me and taking such a bold step to make 76.
“Power is a word that is often used negatively when discussing it in relation to women in our society. Many equate power to being b*tchy or trying to dominate others, but not me. I feel powerful when I am able to affect other people’s lives positively.
“Things like getting jobs for others, helping young actors and filmmakers achieve their dreams, contributing to the success of my own personal projects, and making charitable contributions to those who need it, empowers me on a daily basis.
“Being inspired and passionate about what I do gives me so much energy – and you can equate that to power.”
