The mother of two granted this interview last month where she opened up about her life and journey into Music. So my people make una lef matter, read her interview below
How did you come into the Nollywood industry?
I started acting in Nigerian movie since 2003 and most of my films then were very appreciated by the people, since I receive feedback in over 80 movies I have acted. Back in Nigeria, I could not do the daring moves I am undertaking here in America.
When did you come to America?
I migrated to the United States in 2005 with my ‘Green Card’ and was married like one year plus. And due to much envy, inferiority complex and insecurity of my former husband in Nigeria, we parted ways. But on arrival in America, life was so tough, very challenging as a mother of two. After a long while, I later took part in Hollywood films.
Are you not planning to re-marry?
I have not seen my right match since I am still in search of Mr. Right, who must be wealthy, I don’t care whether he is handsome or ugly.
How did you enter into music?
Oh, since my rent was almost expiring and I could no longer cope with the bills, since I was about to be evicted from my house; I looked at my children and I asked God for help. Then, I did not know there was something the American Government calls ‘Welfare’ for the United States citizens. It was then I knew that once you have your legal papers in America, the government can help you out of your financial predicament. Moreover, as a single mother of two children, it was indeed tough, but God showed up for me. When I slept, I heard myself sing in the dream. I told my children the kind of song I sang. And my eldest daughter advised me to record the song, since it could be a hit. In the course of making further enquiries, I met a guy who introduced me to the music producer of one of the largest record labels here in New Jersey. After he had listened to my plight and song, he told me that their record label could sign me on only if I use my feminine talent to change the brand of the song and made it sexy in all ramifications. He gave me a day to go write my new sexy lyrics and I told him in 30 minutes my new sexy song would be ready. That I delivered and the producer was very happy. That was when he gave me microphone for the first time in his studio. He said I don’t want you to be singing like a struggling mother, just ensure your song is very sexy.
Is it true that you are a sex symbol?
Right, I am a sex symbol.
In one of your movie videos, there was a scene where a guy was on the bed where he had his hands on your nipples and your butt. Was that real?
Yeah, the romantic scenes were real. His hand was also on my ass squeezing it very hard.
You mean the guy actually squeezed your boobs?
Of course, he really touched and squeezed my boobs.
Do you have surgical breast enlargement?
Never, my boobs are natural and make me beautiful, since they are full.
Does your ass compliment your shape?
Yeah, my butt is moderate and it is really a compliment to my shape because I know I am beautiful.
What is the sexiest part of your body?
Every parts of my body are sexy.
Are you ‘high’ when you go on stage?
When I am happy or angry, I get ‘high’ if I were to be on music stage. I don’t take drugs.
So, what other sexy projects are you planning?
I am going to produce an all-porn movie soon which I would produce and may act in there. All the characters in the movies would engage in live sex because I am so daring.
Can you go naked on stage for top celebrity shows?
Of course I can go full naked on music stage if the circumstance and situation demand it. The celebrities in there would also determine that.
Tell us about your music?
My first single is titled ‘Somebody help me’. I have two singles out in the market now ‘Juju Woman’ and ‘No Time for Haters.’
Say five years from now, what height do we expect your movies and music to have attained?
I assure you that globally every music or fun-loving people who cherish undiluted entertainment would be on our page.
Are you part of the team that produced ‘Mapouka’ that sexy music video where live sex was in display?
Lots of people kept asking me that same question-the truth is, I am never a part of Mapouka music video team. I am aware the producer of that sexy music video has made lots of fame from it since he actually tried to invite me over to take part and I declined by saying ‘No’.
How were you raped at 19 years?
At 19 years I was sent an errand by my parent. Along the way, I was raped and disvirgined by a man, who later became a Reverend Father.
Was the guy arrested and punished for his crime?
I kept quiet because I knew that my Mum being a strict disciplinarian would have finished the man and he may probably have ended in ‘jail.’ Before his ordination, he later came looking for me and begged me fervently. I later saw him after several years and I told him what he did was bad and he apologized again on his knees.
