Nollywood Actress, Peju Johnson clears air on being side chick, second wife

Advertisements

Fair and beautiful Nollywood actress, Peju Johnson, has expressed her views on being a second wife to a man, rich or not.

She told Media (known to Noble Reporters Media), “It is better to be single than being a side chick or a second wife. I am more than just an option. I would rather be single than end up as someone’s option.”

Johnson also maintained that she still believes in true love. She said, “I am a believer that true love exists and I am ready to give it. When I am in love, I love with all my heart. Though it scares men and they don’t always believe my love is real because they are used to getting fake love. So, they end up losing the real and true love. I am sure lots of women will support me on this. True love can still be found.”

On her crush in the industry, the curvy role interpreter said, “I like Timini Egbuson. He is my new crush. I just saw him on television and liked him. Maybe it’s a case of love at first sight.”

The actress also maintained that being beautiful was not enough to be successful in Nollywood. She added, “I don’t think being beautiful is enough to succeed in Nollywood. One needs to really know how to act. Being talented is important and will help one become better. You cannot bank on just having a beautiful face.”

Seasoned Nollywood actor, Kolawole Ajeyemi filmmaker and businessman, has revealed that he would never stop acting or directing movies as newly married man to his colleague, Toyin Abraham.

The actor says directing is more like an expression of his artistic talent and starting a family with Abraham won’t reduce his productivity as he is set to release new projects.

Speaking during a recent interaction, Ajeyemi said, “People feel maybe because I have started a family and welcomed a lovely son with my wife, Toyin, will stop me from acting or directing but I’m sorry to burst your bubble but having a family will not slow down my directing productivity in any way but only boost my creative thinking.
I have been directing movies since the year 2010 and that is because I see directing as an expansion of my artistic talent not a different aspect of the art.
I love my family and I love my work. My wife understands that because she’s also into the same industry so we have both learned how to balance family and work.
I really can’t wait for everyone to see what my team and I have put together, it will completely blow your minds”.

Bimbo Akintola one of Nigeria’s most sought after veteran actress is passionate about her career.

However, there are certain things she can’t imagine herself do, an example is having to raise 6 kids like her mother.

In a recent interview with Flair Magazine, she opens up on who she considers as the greatest influence in your life and career.

Advertisements

She says, “In all honesty, it will be my mother because while growing up, I saw my mum as a super woman. My mum did it all and she did it with such ease and class.
Raising six children could not have been easier. I cannot imagine raising 6 children. I will not do it. In all honesty, I can’t. But my mom made it look easy. She had time for each and everyone of us. I don’t know how she managed it, considering that she was a child when she got married. Career wise, my mum was always a great support.
Joke Silva was another support and another influence in my life. And there is also Aunty Shola Shobowale, she was the first person to put me on the stage without the act.
She had a fashion house then and I was one of her models. I can never forget, then I was so uncomfortable, it was out of my comfort zone. But she trained all of us,so we were all feeling like we can do anything. That was such an amazing experience. Thank you auntie Shola Shobowale, I love you so much and auntie Joke Silva.”

Also revealing other things that occupy her time, Bimbo Akintola says, “I am very much a home buddy, I am sure a lot of people don’t know that. When I am not working, I am usually at home and I love to cook. Cooking is one of my favorites. I think if I am not an actor, I would be a chef.

I love to cook and I love the texture of food. I also like to read, I read a lot. I am one of those people that is constantly reading. I read novels, poetry and sometimes I write. Even though I haven’t written anything in the last three or four years. But I write poetry, which is for me, myself and I.”

Wondering what lessons life has taught her, the seasoned movie star added, “That if you don’t take charge of your life, then you won’t have a life. You have to take charge, you get to a point where you get to as an adult, that every action you take has consequences and that if you want something, you need to plan and work towards it. So, that is the lesson that I have learnt from life. That you must work towards what you want and give it your all.
If you had to advise young people who want to go into the sector, what would you tell them?
Enjoy your youth. If you are interested or passionate about anything, then make sure you get the proper training and always put a hundred percent into whatever you are doing.
There is no need to live, if you are not going to live life to it’s fullest. So, whatever you do, always do with your heart, a hundred percent”

Nollywood actress, Dayo Amusa, has said that some actresses, especially the up and coming, make themselves vulnerable to sexual harassment by movie producers and directors.

The 37-year-old in an interview with The Nation, said an adult has every right to say no to predatory men but most upcoming actresses in the industry are the ones running after producers and directors.

Asked if she had experienced sexual harassment in the industry, the actress said: “No, I have not but something similar happened to me in my early years.

A director might see an upcoming actress and say I like you but you cannot be forced and it is so sad that these upcoming actresses are coming to fire the directors and producers to have their way.

It’s not that the directors are the one taking advantage of them. Even the so-called girls as well come in making themselves vulnerable to the producers to get roles fast. So it takes two to tango.”

Nollywood Actress, Laide Bakare speak on her career and husband

Advertisements

Popular Nollywood actress, Laide Bakare has revealed that she will choose her career over her husband.

The script interpreter made this shocking revelation in a chat with Nine lives.

Noble Reporters Media recounts that Laide’s first marriage crahsed years ago, she married another man, and has since been waxing stronger in the industry.

In the interview, the Yoruba born mother of three opened up on her career, achievements, regrets and marital experiences among other issues.

Advertisements

Read some excerpts from the interview below….

How do you combine marriage with career and motherhood?

I wouldnt say it’s hard or easy. No one is going to take up your responsibility for you. You just have to be the woman that you are meant to be. Whichever way, its God’s way of taking me through everything.

Is your husband not afraid that someone might snatch you from him when you’re on location?

Whether you are an actress or not, even the ugly ones, people get admirers. It’s a general thing. It doesnt have anything to do with your work, it depends on who you are, how disciplined you are. It’s all about discipline, and everybody in your life should understand your person and be free.

Advertisements

If your husband asks you to quit acting, what would you do?

I dont think any reasonable man would want his wife to quit her career. Definitely no, I wont adhere to that.

So, you are saying if your husband asks you to choose between him and your career, you won’t hesitate to make a choice?

I will choose my career.

Advertisements

Why would you make such a choice?

It’s because I have worked for it. I have been making money before and after, through my job.

I have other side businesses but the mother of them all is movie-making. So, any other thing that comes out of it is just secondary. I wouldn’t jeopardize what made me, because I have been Laide Bakare since age 16. So, I don’t think it is something I would want to drop.

How do you safeguard your marriage from crashing?

It’s God, the fact that it has not happened doesn’t mean it will not happen. It may happen to me tomorrow. For me, I feel so calm and easy, believing that whatever God wants in one’s life shall happen. What if it has been destined to happen in one’s life?
