Why I Am Very Controversial


What has been happening, as you seem to be so quiet lately? 
It is deliberate as I have been so busy for some time. I have been travelling a lot and working on so many other projects outside the movie circuit. Just recently, I opened my boutique in Abuja. I also have a spa and a saloon in the city. I will soon open my Lagos outlet, it is just that Lagos is too choked up for me, but that should not be an excuse.

 I am definitely working on my Lagos branch. I have loads of customers in Lagos that I bring stuff for more than every other place. However, I love Abuja right now for its serenity. As per movie, during my spare time, I still run to some locations to shoot one or two movies. In fact, I am working on some scripts. 

Are you not afraid that you may recede in the memory of your fans with this long break? A good brand will always remain fresh even if went out of circulation for five years. You will always be remembered for your good works. I don’t believe one needs to do a hundred movies to stay relevant and fresh in the industry. 

I know some people who have featured in many productions but yet do not have that star status. If you don’t have the star streak, you don’t have it.
You can do just a movie in a year and you will be high up there. Funke Akindele has been in the industry for some time but she came up with this fantastic movie ‘Jenifa’ that deals with a very important topic, though comical, and that was it. Moreso, with the level I have attained in the industry, I don’t think I should be everywhere. That’s the truth. But we all know that there wasn’t real money to be made in this our industry, so, one has to really use his or her talent in a very positive way. I have a flair for other things and I am pursuing them. Movie will always be there and I can always fall back to it. I do it when I can do it. I travel a lot. The name is still there 
So I need to do a lot of things because I would definitely fall back to the movies. 

You can’t leave the industry just like that. It’s not possible. What is it about Empress that attracts controversy? I don’t know o. I can’t explain the reasons for all these controversies, but I guess a lot of your people think that without me they can’t sell their newspapers and magazines. But you enjoy all the buzz? Well, as much as I like people to make money and improve their lives, but seriously it doesn’t have to be through controversy. What even are all these controversies? 

That people write things that they know aren’t true, all because they want to sell their magazines? Most times they just write things to entertain their readers which they know are not true about me. Is that the kind of controversy you think I enjoy? 

Why are you still single? I am going to say this and don’t care how people will take it; the days when marriages were sweet and all beautiful are no more. If you listen to how your parents got married and how those days were sweet, but unfortunately it is not like that anymore. I have seen a lot of people going into marriages and have witnessed them coming out of it. Considering this, you will be careful.

 A lot of guys can’t stand an industrious woman especially if she is doing very well. That is the mentality of some people. Looking at me, I am a car freak alright. I have five cars and not acquiring them because I want to show off, but to some guys, can they stand that? I am a very blunt person and always trying to say it the way it is, not minding whatever. Every woman’s dream is to get married but it’s not just to get married but to get married to your friend. I want to marry my friend.

  1. You could have arranged the post properly, everything is muddled up and does not read like an interview excerpt that it is.

    Back to the post, I think Empress is a good actress, I love that she is focused on other things while the scripts are not coming.

  3. No matter how bad marriages get, there are still very good ones. You both have to make certain sacrifices and make up ur mind to make urs the best.

    And biko, what is she doing with 5 cars? The men may not be intimidated by your success. They might just be seeing you as someone who wastes money. No man wants to marry a woman who is very materialistic and a spendrift.

    But anyhow sha..wateva helps anyone sleep at night.

      So what If she was a man. That one it would be ok to have the 5 cars abi? Just because she is a woman she can't buy cars she likes eventhough she worked hard for her money.
      At the end of the day, that is why she said she wants to marry her friend. Cos someone who is her friend will understand her passion for cars. This is a woman who knows herself and what she wants in life, and she understands that marriage is not a do or die affair. If you like her, you should like her for who she is, and not force her to succomb to societal ideas about how a woman should or not behave

      We all have things we like and can splurge any amount of money on, for some people it's clothes, others are shoes, some are electrical gadgets. Even you Ada you mention that you have more than one phone, e-tablet, iPod, iPad, and some other gadgets.
      For her she likes cars and she works hard to get her money do why judge her as someone who wastes money. Someone might also thing you are a spindrift for having all those gadgets

  4. Guys I understand ur point...and trust me, I am just playing devil's advocate here. I m a firm believer in working hard and playing hard....man or woman...in fact, especially women. I love it when I see a woman who earns enough to make herself happy without depending on any man.

    That said, I am just stating reasons why men avoid such women. It's not always inferiority complex on the men's part.

    Btw, having 5 gadgets is different from having five cars o....hehehe... I have a friend who is a car freak...but he sells his old ones and buys the latest every year...sometimes 2-3 times in a yr... but like I said, whatever helps anyone sleep at night..
