Didi Ekanem is a fast and upcoming actress. In a recent interview with Vanguard Newspaper, the 'Jump and Pass' actress talks her curves, Nollywood and sex roles.
According to Didi, she would love for people to view her as a talented person and not just as a sexy person. Read excerpts from interview;
What can you or cannot do in interpreting a role?
First of all, my job is to act. So, I am supposed to be able to play every character. I can do a sex scene but of course, you know that it’s not like you’re going to have sex for real, probably just take off some part of your clothing and just act it. As an actor, I have to play every role; I can do a sex scene. I can play as a lesbian, in fact I have a movie that I played as a lesbian and I played it so well
Did you kiss somebody in it?
Yes of course, I did everything a lesbian would do. That’s me being an actor.
Can you let a guy grab your bum in a movie?
Of course, in Jump and Pass, a guy tapped my ass. If it has to be real, there’s nothing there, it’s just grabbing my bum.
How do you feel having one of the biggest bums in Nollywood?
It’s a good feeling and a wonderful one. But I won’t lie to you, as much as I love it so much, I just wish people would focus more on my talent than my bum.
All the concentration out there is on my bum not my talent. I would honestly wish people to see me as a talented actress not a sexy one. But my bum is not allowing people to see me deep down, to see the person and the talent.
