Unlike most women who would stay low and broken after a failed marriage, Nollywood actress, Uche Ogbodo, who walks mostly in the path of controversy and most often than not, comes off it like a rubber ball bouncing off the wall is waxing stronger and better as a single mother.
She is a hard nut to crack and never at the mercy of life or circumstances. When her marriage didn’t live up to her expectation, she walked off, not minding the fact that the marriage was not even up to a year. “The marriage didn’t work out. My marriage was based on lies” she declared brusquely.
After the marriage crash and a baby to look after Uche is set for another life, which according to her, is definitely going to be better than living with lies and under the shackles of marriage. She has everything all figured out and the first thing that counts now is her acting career.
“Of course, I’m going to take on more daring roles, that’s my career and I’m only going to keep improving myself. As an actress, there’s nothing that I cannot do. There’s nothing I can’t do in a movie, once it’s a movie. I can even take up a lesbian role. But in real life I’m not a lesbian, don’t get it twisted. That’s why I’m an actress, its make-believe, it’s not who I am. I’m only going to do my career the way I’m supposed to do it and it puts food on my table so you don’t feed me, you don’t judge me, that’s it”, she said without bating an eyelid.
She also revealed more of her music plans, “I haven’t come around to releasing a single but I have it at the back of my mind, really. I’ve done some previously, but I didn’t release any one. I’ve done about six tracks produced by Phyno some years ago” she said.
