Excerpts of Nollywood actress Empress Njamah’s recent chat with Dupe Ayinla.
What Is Empress Njamah Up To Now
This time, we are planning towards the Valentine season. My charity will be working with the children again. We had one early on; which was the back to school project.
But for Val, we will be visiting one or two general hospitals and share some useful items with them and also pay some bills for delivery for those who gave birth that day and a day before.
Why Haven’t You Been Featuring In Movies
I haven’t lost interest in movies. This is something that you can do even to your old age; when you start using walking-stick.
You revealed in one of your interviews that you are yet to get a very challenging role; is it the reason for your absence?
Concerning getting challenging roles; with things getting bigger by the day and trying to expand too, I am yet to get that challenging role. I always like to do stunts; like when I did Scout; my brother didn’t believe I was going to climb the tallest mountain in Jos to come down with a rope.
Those are the kind of things I would like to do. You know we have done all this drama things in school as growing up; you know the mama and papa roles. Something challenging I am yet to do, but that does not mean I have lost interest in movies. Like I said earlier, I am working on three scripts; they are actually five, but I rejected two because the person in the other scripts wasn’t interesting.
So I had to tell them to go back to their drawing board and bring in intrigue. I want to do something that will blow the people’s mind and at the same time be entertaining and fun to see too. There are things that are always occupying my time and, my business and others. I am hyper-active naturally; I can’t sit still, so I always have many things I am doing at the same time, aside acting.
When do you plan to settle down?
There is never an expiry date for getting married. I don’t know why people keep asking this question.
Could your status as a celebrity be one of the reasons for delay in getting married?
It has nothing to do with it. It could happen to anyone; they are some people who won’t get married and there are some who want to get married and it is not forthcoming. And there are some who are taking their time not to jump in. Eventually it will happen; there is not date that is written that you have to get married. If I haven’t gotten married, there are obviously reasons why I haven’t. And I don’t see that as a crime or problem. When the time comes, it is obvious that people will know and celebrate with you genuinely. If you see the right man and match, why not, Let’s not make this thing a point of a big deal; I don’t know.
