I delibrately engage in controversy to gain popularity – Esther Nwachukwu
Nollywood actress, Esther Nwachukwu has explained she’s involved in lots of controversies on social media.
Speaking in an interview with Sunday Scoop, the actress said she deliberately engages in controversies on social media to gain popularity.
Esther Nwachukwu said;
“I am not a prostitute. I just decided to become controversial because I wanted to trend. I have been to so many auditions, but in the end, if one does not have money to produce one’s own movie or pay directors to give one a lead role, one would keep being a ‘handbag’ (being relegated). That is now what I want. I have auditioned for Big Brother Nigeria more than six times. I even got to the final stage but they did not pick me.
“I have also been in Nollywood with nothing to show for it. It is either the director wants to sleep with one in exchange for a role, or one had to pay money, which I considered to be nonsense. That was why I decided to become controversial.”
The actress who had in the past disclosed that she prefers dating married men, explained why she made the decision.
“I am not dating a married man but if I see one, I will date him. They (married men) are less stressed and they take care of women better than single guys. If a married man has a girlfriend, he would take care of the girl. But, single guys have divided attention; they are always jumping from one woman to the other.”
When asked if she isn’t afraid of being disgraced or attacked for dating a married man, she said;
“It depends on how one handles it. One just has to respect the boundaries, and don’t interfere in his marriage. As a ‘side chic’, one should not call him when he is at home. As long as he is taking care of one, one does not need to blackmail him with his family. It is when one disrespects the family that it becomes dangerous.
“Whether I date a married man or not, a side chic will date my husband. It is normal. It is the nature of men to cheat. The important thing is for him to respect me.”
