August 3rd, 2013 – Nollywood Actress Uche Ogbodo Blasts Nigerian Porn Star Afrocandy “I Never Want To Be Ur Friend, U Lack Substance”

Do you guys remember the story of one Afrocandy, a Nigerian actress who did a soft porn movie that went viral few months ago? She was the actress who recently did a manhood audition where she invited highly endowed men to showcase their man-hoods.

To cut he long story short, in a bid to gain popularity the wrong way, Afrocandy sent an invitation to Nollywood actress Uche Ogbodo via her Facebook wall but Uche has since turned down her request.

In this recent interview with Punch‘s Nonye Ben-Nwankwo, Uche Ogbodo talked at length on what happened between them.

Interview excerpt below;

The issue with Afrocandy, the soft porn producer also went viral. What really happened? Did she approach you personally to feature in her movie?

She didn’t approach me personally to say I should star in her movie. But she released a statement on her Facebook wall. I saw the statement because a lot of people drew my attention to it. I didn’t know who she was, but I had heard of her because the media had been saying unpleasant stuff about her.

Was that why you sent out your own statement about you not being a porn actress?

Being who I am, I didn’t take a second thought before I issued my statement. Her Facebook statement could have meant so many things. It could have been that she admired me and wished to be in a movie with me. It could have also meant she wanted me to star in her porn movie. I didn’t think of the former before I released my statement. A lot of people choose to take the negative than the positive, so I needed to clarify some issues to some people who might have thought I was considering going into pornography. I don’t have anything against her. She is a Nollywood actress, but I cannot live her kind of lifestyle. I am so decent even in the movies. I told her that I wouldn’t be able to feature in her movie and even if I have to become a porn actress, I would have to do it professionally and with a higher industry and certainly not cheap porn.

She replied your statement…

Oh yes. She replied and blasted me. But I didn’t react. I wouldn’t want to cheapen myself. I would have been promoting her if I had done that.

But we learnt you sent friendship request to her on Facebook?

I don’t know her. I don’t think she is my friend on Facebook. It is funny. She was just trying to make herself important. I know who I am. I have well over 24,000 followers on Facebook. I don’t think I sent a request to her. I can only do that to people who are bigger than me, especially big companies. I don’t use Facebook to connect to anybody or set up a friendship. I have so many messages on my wall but I cannot reply. They are so many. This was somebody who said she wanted to act alongside me and some others in her movie. It then meant she had some high regard for me. I didn’t go to meet her and beg to be in her movie. She is not the kind of person I would want to relate with. I want to be friends with women of substance. I want to be known for good reasons and not bad. I want to be friends with people who live a good life.

Would featuring in her film have been a bad idea?

I am not a porn star. I don’t want to act in a porn movie. I want to get married. I want to have children and be a good wife and mother. This is Africa and not Hollywood. Nobody can ever see me go naked in the movies. Nobody has ever seen me take off my clothes and show any part of my body in the movies.

Going back to Afrocandy, why do you think she added you to the list where she had Anita Joseph and Cossy Orjiakor?

I wouldn’t know. Maybe she sees strength in the three of us. It maybe she also saw confidence and an ‘I can do all things,’ spirit in all. Otherwise, I wouldn’t know why she would put me in their category. I don’t have butts like Anita. My boobs are not as big as Cossy’s. I wear a size 34D. I just have broad shoulders.


Afrocandy’s real name is Judith Opara Mazagwu, she is an Igbo woman who is currently based in the United States Of America. She is a mother of two.
