Nollywood fast-rising actor, Jide Ekene has spoken on his experience with female fans.
During a recent interview, the ‘living in bondage’ star when asked how he deals with his attention from female fans and colleagues had this to say;
“Hrmmm, the world is run by women to be honest, in every home now, for any marriage that is upstanding, you will realise the woman is boss as long as there’s love. I appreciate the love of all my female fans in everything but I can only belong to one person at the end of the day but I can also belong to all but not in every departments. Trust me like I have a foundation that support single mothers. You know people from single parents, who are finding it difficult, so I understand these things so I want to work effectively. I prayed for this day, I did pray to be here to have this influence so the best way to return glory to God is to actually use it well.”
When asked on his journey into Nollywood the actor had this to say;
“I’ve been acting for like 12 years, I had a poor phone conversation with an old friend of mine today who has now moved to the United States and she was like I appreciate the fact that you never ever sold yourself short like you always knew who you were and you are going to get here and I’m like yeah this is just the beginning. Let’s be honest, so in all honesty, in the whole matter who knows where we could be tomorrow five years time, ten years time nobody really knows so the honest truth is I keep my fingers crossed. Journey to Nollywood took some time, some good time, anybody that wants something worthwhile will wait, you can’t plant mango and harvest in six months that’s maize. If you want a perennial fruit, you will plant, wait years before you reap your first seed but when it comes it doesn’t stop.”
