Award winning actress, Jumoke Odetola has declared that she is not in a relationship.
Odetola whose movie ‘Higa Haga is currently making waves in Nollywood also stated reasons why movie producers take advantage of actresses.
Speaking in a chat with Tribune, she said:” Yes, producers may have some outside professional interest in you, either male or female, but the question is who are you? And how did you present yourself? A lot of actresses came into acting not for the art, but for a means to get to an end; such actresses always come with a different kind of presentation and some producers take advantage of this.
“For me, I work with producers, directors and filmmakers that stay professional. Once there is any hint of extra professional, I draw the line. I avoid it tactically and maturely without even making a fuss out of it. I understand men making advances at girls; it’s not a crime as far as the lady is an adult. It is a matter of simple ‘yes or no’ and this should never cross professionalism. So, to answer the question, it is a no. I haven’t because of the way I present myself and I believe a lot of ladies should take a cue from this”.
Asked what her fans hardly know about her, she said:”They don’t know that I don’t have a boyfriend. I am also aquaphobia; I’m afraid of sea, pool, and river. Lastly, I don’t like parties”.
