Controversial Nollywood actress, Empress Njamah has gone emotional to pledge her innocence regarding all the negative things that have been said and written about her in recent times.
Reacting to some of the controversies trailing her acting career recently on her facebook page, the dark-skinned, sexy-eyed actress alleged that she has over the years been wrongly judged by her critics.
According to Empress, when people who have read or heard a lot of negative things about her meet her in person, they are always shocked to discover that she is a direct opposite of what they think she is.
“Never judge a book by its cover; I am a typical example of that. When people who have read or heard a lot of negative reports about me meet me, they are always shocked. Some will even render their apology, telling me, “Empress, I am sorry, I didn’t think you were this kind of warm,” she wrote on facebook page.
She continued, “You see with the way people painted at me especially the press, anyone who has not met me before will think I am a devil. The function of the press in society is to inform, but its role in decadent society like ours is abused by misinforming the masses in order to make money. If you believe everything you see and hear in the news, then, you can as well believe Obama is a grandmother”
“I do not see myself joining any clique. I do not see myself hanging out at the theatre with others, discussing everything about nothing. If anybody needs me, if you have a job for me, just call me.”
“Our society is full of hypocrisy. Apart from the fact that acting nude is alien to our culture, there are so many things happening in our society today which are not part of our culture. The same people who would love to see you look decent are the same people who would go behind your back to criticise you. That’s our society for you. Yes, if my society is not all that hypocritical, I will do it.”
Empress who invaded the scene in 1995, has been keeping low profile since her ugly break-up with ex-boy friend, Timaya.
HVP learnt that she’s planning to throw a one-in-town party for her friends and colleagues in the industry to mark her birthday anniversary.
