Nollywood popular actress, Chiamaka Nwokeukwu has disclosed that she had to dump her boyfriend before getting a chance into the Nollywood movie industry.
Speaking in an interview with Potpourri Magazine, she narrated that her former boyfriend was scared of her becoming a celebrity, so he gave her an option to choose between becoming a star and him, which she (Chiamaka) picked her career over the boyfriend.
She explained that for the sake of tomorrow, she had no choice than to secure her life first before thinking about relationships.
“Yes, I dumped him for Nollywood because he didn’t want me to be a star. He didn’t want me to follow up my career and he had not proposed to me. They can leave me tomorrow and now that I have the opportunity, I need to follow up.
“God blessed everybody with talent. It’s not easy to have talent, most people cannot act and when you have the zeal and you can do something, you have to use it well.
“It’s normal for a boy or girl to meet and if you really love your girl, you would let her go into what she wants. When I get married, automatically if my husband says he doesn’t want me to act again, I will not act again as long as he’s taking care of me,” She explained.
