Nigerian Nollywood actress Ini Edo who hails from Eket in Akwa Ibom state seems to no longer care about acting. According to reports the actress has been rejecting movie roles she was called to do.
Ini Edo last featured in a movie she and Uche Jumbo co-produced last year and since then she is no way near the screens.
She has been using the excuse of having another project she is working on to reject movie roles, and one of the movies she rejected ended up making close to about N0.5billion.
From a source it is reported that she is now into a very wealthy guy that can take very good care of her and as such she does not need the movie of acting to live her flamboyant life.
The source said;
“You see this lady called Ini Edo is wealthier than Genevieve Nnaji, Mercy Johnson and Chika Ike combined. The man she is now dating is the boss of my friend; this man is swimming in money, so there is nothing Ini Edo will gain by running around production set like her colleagues. Her level has changed now. She is not those common Nollywood ‘ashewos’ running around with politicians.”
She got married to Philip Ehiagwina in 2008 but the marriage collapsed in 2014 as the tradition of Nollywood that marriages cannot stand, very few marriages of Nollywood stars have lasted so far.
Ini Edo was appointed as The Special Assistant to the Akwa Ibom State Governor on Culture and Tourism by Udom Gabriel Emmanuel in 2016 and is currently holding the office till date.
