Nigerian actress Monalisa Chinda has subtly trolled her ex-husband Dejo Richards in her latest interview.
The actress has recently spoken on why she hasn’t been on the screen for a very long time and her previous marriage.
According to her, she took a break to concentrate on production, still in the entertainment industry. She has also noted that there is the need to give the younger generation the chance in the industry since she’s grown.
‘I’m not there on the screens as I used to be. I am getting older and need to give room for the younger generation to take over. There are certain roles I can’t do anymore. I am older now. For example, I can’t be seen playing some significant roles made for the younger generation, like a young university student, but I can do stepmum, housemaid, boss lady etc.
‘For romantic roles, why not? I am an actor, a versatile one for that matter. If the romantic role would be fantastically done, well scripted with a good director, then I would give it a shot. But I’ll never go nude for any reason. Nudity doesn’t work here, we are Africans; our cultures are different.
‘However, for now, I am more about producing my own movies and my show. That’s another reason I slowed down a bit. But this year, you would see me gracing more of your TV screens,‘ she said.
In terms of marriage, Monalisa Chinda noted that she made a mistake about falling in love with her ex-husband Dejo Richards, CEO of Question Mark label.
She said; ‘It only made me wiser. I didn’t kill anybody, I didn’t steal. I only thought I was making the right decision, but at the end if the day it was a mistake, but I moved on. I didn’t stuck in there sulking. I moved on, worked on myself and love found me again. Then, I was naive and young. I met the wrong person at the right time,‘ she stated.
Monalisa Chinda is now a happy Mrs for Tonye Coker and the couple are yet to make babies.
