Nigerian actress Ebube Nwagbo has revealed how she deals with pressures to get marry.The actress from Anambra in this chat with Saturday Beats says she longs to get marry but she won’t rush into it for the sake of pleasing people.
The 35-year-old actress said reading insightful books has helped her become a better woman.
She also added that her strict Christian background has helped her maintain a scandal free life.
“The pressure of marriage comes but I am happy for the type of parents and family members I have. They all understand that marriage is not a decision I have to make in a hurry. I try to let everybody know that deciding who to marry has to be done right and at the appropriate time as well. I have learnt to deal with this pressure by not allowing whatever people say to bother me. As a person, I try to be the best that I can. I come from a very strict Christian background. My parents always tell me never to forget where I am coming from and I never forget that. The training they gave me has helped in shaping the woman I am today. Being a star comes with a lot of pains. There are people in the society who want to control your life and make you live in a certain way. But the truth is that you can’t please everyone. Sometimes you have to be yourself and this could be misunderstood. It’s a price we have to pay for being in the limelight.”
On how she got the idea for her new clothing line, the actress said:
“The idea of Pushed Up came following weeks of soul-searching and brainstorming. I like to try out new things and look good as a person. What I have done is just recreate my looks and putting it out there for people to appreciate. I regard myself as a creative designer.
“As a businesswoman, I have learnt to read widely. I have had to learn from those who have been successful in business and see how I can replicate that in my venture. My best ideas come at bedtime. In that relaxed state, I get to search my inner self and come up with ideas truly amazing. The fashion industry in Nigeria is huge, I am trying to create something good that others can benefit from as well.”
