Nigerian Media Made Me A Devil To Make Money--Empress Njamah
Story by Osaremen Ehi James/
Click for Full Image Size Today, Saturday, November 17, 2012, Nollywood's controversial actress, Empress Njamah added a year to her age. But for the former girlfriend of controversial Bayelsa State-born singer, Timaya, she chose this day to pour out her mind on the way the media practitioners in Nigeria have made a devil out of her in order to make money for themselves.

The Olabisi Onabanjo University, Ago Iwoye, Ogun State graduate took to her Facebook page to express her displeasure at the way the watchdogs of the society have, according to her, 'poisoned' the minds of the people in believing she is as bad as she is being reported in the press.

She posted, "never judge a book by its cover; I am a typical example of that. When people who have read or heard a lot of negative reports about me meet me, they are always shocked. Some will even render their apology, telling me, 'Empress, I am sorry, I didn’t think you were this kind of warm'.

“You see with the way people painted me especially the press, anyone who has not met me before will think I am a devil. The function of the press in society is to inform, but its role in a decadent society like ours is abused by misinforming the masses in order to make money.

"If you believe everything you see and hear in the news, then, you can as well believe Obama is a grandmother. I do not see myself joining any clique. I do not see myself hanging out at the theatre with others, discussing everything about nothing. If anybody needs me, if you have a job for me, just call me.

"Our society is full of hypocrisy. Apart from the fact that acting nude is alien to our culture, there are so many things happening in our society today which are not part of our culture. The same people who would love to see you look decent are the same people who would go behind your back to criticise you. That’s our society for you. Yes, if my society is not all that hypocritical, I will do it."

You really think the Nigerian media has 'poisoned' the mind of the people in believing that Empress is a devil?

It's like some people here live with the devil and have visited Jezebel before by their comment. Anyone who doesn't believe Empress is either ignorant or a deliberate liar. I've been in the media sector for almost 30 years and I know what the media used to be and what it has been turned to by those trying to make money at the expense of the lives of others. By the description of those who know, the Nigerian Media is actually the one that I believe looks like the devil and Jezebel, though I don't know how both look like.

Ngobaby | 11/27/2012 5:27:34 AM
I believe the saying "less is more" and "you are addressed the way you dress" but then... she's got the right to dress in the she feels makes her good.

Beautiful Empress NJAMAH
Charity | 3/8/2013 8:16:23 AM
Empress, listen, I want you to know that you are a very beautiful and ambitious young lady okay? All you have to do is to believe in yourself and always keep a POSITIVE MIND at all times. When once you know that you are on the right track, fear no one, girl. Media or no media, just keep pushing on and let no one put you down. Dont be surprise Empress that, tomorrow, when you are doing well, the same media will come begging to publish your good and successful story. Just keep as beautiful as you always are. God bless you my dear young beautiful lady. I like your style of dressing and all the pearls you are wearing, they are colourful, awesome and in fashion too. BRAVO !!!
