Nollywood actress Ebube Nwagbo, 33 in a recent interview with Vanguard spoke on several issues including her current relationship, thoughts on marriage, scandals in the movie industry and alleged relationship with music star Kcee.
Read excerpts from the interview below On relationship
Yes, why won’t I have a man in my life? I’m a young girl, so of course, why not? If I say I don’t have a man in my life people may ask if I’m possessed or something (laughs). Yes, I want to get married but at the right time, I’m not one of those people who do something out of pressure, no, I would not do that.
On fear of marriage
Wow! Well, I don’t know where that story is coming out from because I’ve not granted an interview in years, about 3 or 4-years now. So, I don’t know where that rumour is coming from. I remember saying marriage is
a big deal to me and if I have to do it then it has to be right. What marriages are going through right now in my industry is crazy.
No one goes into marriage and thinks of getting out of it the next minute, but for some reason it doesn’t work out. It’s not me
trying to blame anyone now, but it does happen. For me, if I have to do it, I’ve to do it right, marriage is a big deal for me if I’m going to do it, it’s going to be at the right
time and not out of pressure because the same people who rush you into it would be the same people who would later make jest of you.
On scandals & alleged relationship with KCee When somebody writes something about you and it’s not true it’s painful, especially when it’s not true. If you actually did something and they are writing about it then you may feel remorse about it, but if you didn’t it, would be really heart-breaking.
The thing is, I’ve developed a very thick skin, I don’t care anymore. Before, It used to affect me a lot, at a time, I said I was going to quit Nollywood. But now I think I’ve learnt how to tackle these things, based on what I do everybody doesn’t have to like you. The ones who like you like you and the ones who don’t like you there is nothing you can
do about it. I’ve learnt to focus on the most important things and ignore the negative things that are written about me. I’ve learnt that the older I get the wiser I also get. I started acting in Nollywood as a young girl, so I’ve grown a lot; I’ve had so many experiences, so I see such stories as the downsides of my profession.
