Former Delta soap model and Governor Rochas Okorocha’s Principal Prococol Officer, Shirley Igwe has been able to keep her name off the gossip columns, not only by living a low profile life or staying off controversial waters but also making sure she keeps her private life secret.
But it seems all that may soon end as a blogger, according to the actress, is on her trail and ready to do some damage to her good image.
Igwe who spoke to Potpourri said the purported blogger claims to work with Nigeriafilms.com and goes by the name Austin. He has been bugging me to grant him an interview but I haven’t had time to give him any audience. Just days ago he reached me on Twitter and threatened to do a negative story on me. His exact words were: “Now, you won’t answer me but when I do a negative story on you, you will know how far”, said Shirley who was utterly disgusted by the development.
“He didn’t do it just once, he repeated it many times and has been repeating it consistently now. I don’t know what negative story he can do on me but I am well aware how far these kind of bloggers can go to fabricate stories. I have been hearing about it and now somebody is trying to make me a victim”, she said.
Shirley Igwe was appointed by Governor Rochas Okorocha, last year, as his Principal Protocol Officer, after the sacking of another actress, Sylvanus Nkiru, who held the position of Special Assistant on Lagos Affairs.
