Asked how she feels whenever people ask why she is yet to marry, the actress cum business woman said, “I feel like a woman who is not yet married.”

“I am a realist. I am not the kind of woman who thinks that things just come to you. It will come at some point. It is not easy for people like us in the limelight unlike others. What kills us sometimes, is wanting to be perfect. A lot of people who fancy you probably don’t fancy being in the news.”

On the subject of of baby mamas, she said“Most of them, who pretend that they are happy about being ‘Baby Mamas’ go home and feel sorry for themselves  wishing that have a proper man.

“I have friends who feel that they have got to a certain age and they are not taken. These days, there are 30 women to a man. There is no pressure on me for not being married because I come from an enlightened family.

“Most of the things happening in the industry are not encouraging. This week, you are happy and have a big wedding, the next, you have broken up. What is the essence?”

The Abuja-based entrepreneur adds that she has not abandoned her acting career, saying she is still an actress regardless of how long her break from the industry is.

“It will be very unfair for me to abandon what actually gave me the name Empress Njamah. The industry does not have an expiry date no matter what age one gets to. One can still play a role." she said.
