Abia State-born actress, Uche Jombo has again shied away from addressing the rumours surrounding the breakup of her marriage to Puerto Rican Kenney Rodriguez.
However, the mother of one whose latest blockbuster, Heaven On My Mind is about to hit the cinemas, confided in Inside Nollywood about her plans to stop having babies.
“Sorry, I don’t talk about my marriage. As for having another child, no! I’m okay with just one child,” the actress quipped.
Speaking on the challenges of being a filmmaker, Jombo adjudged that it’s a process that only gets better with time and consistency.
“People often ask me about the challenges of a female filmmaker, but come on, it makes no difference whether you’re male or female. It’s not a gender thing. It’s all about filmmaking and how serious you are. For me, if you have an opportunity to make a film, just do it. If you don’t get it right the first time, try again; it’s a process.
“Let people see the change and growth as you continue. People should see the progress, and please, learn new things every time. Take a course; six months or one year, and try to do something different.
This is a profession you can be in till you die, so you can always go back, rebrand and relaunch. Nollywood has really given us a lot, so we the veterans should try and invest in the industry.”
