Nollywood actress Shan George has shed light on her life beyond Nollywood and the many untoward things she has had to face in life.
The never-aging actress says she cannot say she is fulfilled because that word to her is opened to interpretation.
According to the mother of seven children, she has been married just twice—her first marriage when she was 16 years old and her second marriage. She adds that she had two kids from her first marriage and later on adopted seven other kids because she always wanted a big family.
“I’ve not been married thrice; it’s just twice. It’s not that I care about things we read on the Internet, but the truth is I’ve been married twice in my life. Those who know me know the truth.
“I have a total of nine children, two biological sons and seven adopted children (5 boys, 2 girls). My biological sons are from my first marriage contracted when I was 16. I didn’t have kids in my second marriage. But as an only child, I needed a full house, so I kept adopting kids.”
Speaking on life generally, she revealed that she has had her fair share of everything and was even one time stoned by market women because of a role she played in a movie.
“Some people who have watched movies where you played a witch or prostitute tend to see you the same way in real life and look at you somehow.
“Market women who sell tomatoes have stoned me. They stoned me tomatoes because there was a movie, Rest In Peace, where I played a character that deceived her girlfriend to the village and drowned her in the river, and then returned to town pretending nothing had happened.”
