In a chat with Potpourri,she revealed she doesn’t believe actresses are promiscuous.
“Actresses in the Yoruba movie industry are not promiscuous. A lot of people say that we are but it is not true. Even the banking sector isn’t exempted from promiscuity. Why are people focusing on actresses?People should stop tagging actresses as being promiscuous. Everything depends on what you want as an actress and who you are.” When asked how far she can go to interpret a role she simply said she cannot allow anyone touch her boobs in a movie.
“Yes I can kiss, but I can’t allow someone to touch my boobs in a movie. The script is neither a Bible nor is it a Quran. We can always find a way around it.” Commenting on what stands her out as an actress, she said her ability to interpret her roles well makes her a brilliant actress.” It’s talent and my ability to interpret my roles well that stands me out. It’s not just my beauty that makes me different. You don’t have to sleep around to be featured in a movie, if you are good, people will definitely look for you”
