Colette Orji, who celebrates her birthday today is known in some circles in Nollywood as the queen of epic movies because she seems to have the knack for bringing out the best in herself when it comes to epic movies.
She once described herself as the typical African woman on account of her curvy, mannequin-like figure eight shape, but the Cameroonian groomed, fair-skinned Igbo woman needs to be seen to appreciate the kind of influence she could have on the menfolk.
Definitely not a woman who believes in the cliche that a woman should be seen and not heard, Colette is known for airing her opinions freely and oftentimes doesn’t care if they hurt anyone.
Currently holidaying somewhere in London, Colette poured out her heart through the social media when she was asked by Potpourri to state five qualities she cannot condone in her man. Hear her :
“I will never condone laziness. Some men are so lazy, this brings about all the many ill-health most relationships suffer. They want to watch movies, comedies , create daily jokes as well as keep watching the many jokes everywhere. Reading gossips online everyday and looking for who to chat . They don’t even understand why a woman needs to work. These are the men who have refused to be educated in life by life. They live by traditions and don’t believe anything is true because of their own set minds.
Then there’s the men who don’t know how to say ‘no’ to any pretty face in a skirt. We can’t even elaborate on these types because they are so disgusting. They are full of lies, deceits and they have no respect for their own body, they treat it with open ridicule and disdain.
And there’s the ungodly men. So ungodly and uncivilised that anything goes. Just anything, anyhow, any way. No laid down principles, no purpose, no vision, no sense. These types, hit their wives, kids, parents, women on the streets, fight to die/kill at any moment.
Then guys who don’t make any attempt to look clean enough. That’s not a good thing” she stated.
Potpourri wishes the actress happy birthday
