April 22, 2017 – Juliet Ibrahim: Ghanaian Porn Movies Are Produced By Money-Conscious Producers, Nigeria Is My Second Home
Excerpts Of Ghanaian actress Juliet Ibrahim’s recent chat with Victor Akande
What is happening to your reality TV show the Perfect Assistant?
It’s going to be out very soon, we are just working on a few modalities here and there.
You have featured in both Yoruba and Hausa movie. How was the experience for a Ghanaian?
Out of the norm and very interesting. I would do it again and again. I can’t wait to act in an Igbo film as well.
Most Ghanaian movies are said to promote porn, what is you take on this?
Like I said in one interview, those kinds of movies are not movies from well-known producers. They are done by some new and money conscious producers.
Being a physical activity; how were you able to convince others, especially your counterparts in Nigeria?
I honestly did not have to convince anyone. My Nigerian and Ghanaian counterparts were magnanimous enough to give up their time and put on their boots for a good cause which was to raise funds for critical needs of patients suffering from kidney-related ailments.
What is your take on people saying celebrities find it hard to stay in marriage?
It’s really not about celebrities; the reason why the focus is on celebrities is because they are in the limelight. A lot of regular folks have troubled marriages but people tend not to see that because they aren’t in the open. The question really should be ”why do people find it hard to stay in marriages these days?” But then again; you will never know why a marriage would end until you are put in the persons’ shoes. Till then; people should stop judging celebrities.
As an actor who comes to Nigeria often, do you pay duties for selling your goods here?
I have registered companies In Nigeria as well as business partners.
You have formed a very strong alliance with Nigerian actors; do you feel at home when you are here?
Absolutely! Nigeria is my second home and my colleagues here make me feel like one of their own, no discrimination whatsoever.
