Beautifully endowed Nollywood actress Nkechi Blessing Sunday has sure carved a niche for herself in the movie industry as an actor and producer with several jobs to her credit. Often time tagged drama queen, Nkechi in a chat with MUTIAT ALLI reveal how it all started in the industry, why she is comfortable in her size, dream role amongst others A lot of people a times consider you as upcoming artiste; how do you when such comments are passed towards you?
I get that a lot but am not actually moved by that because as long as people appreciate my creative process, I am good to go as I won’t allow such compliment to deprive me of giving my best at all time.
I have been in the industry for quite sometimes now, precisely between 2008-2009.
I have been in the industry for say 10 years, so if you are in that category of people that still tag me upcoming that mean you have not been watching well.
It took me a lot of hardwork to be where I am today and I appreciate God almighty for his immense grace.
It took you seven years to be known after your movie ‘Omoge Lekki’ pushed your face out, what do you think you did right now?
For me I think social media really helped my career a lot most especially the instagram platform because I talk a lot on social media and maybe that is more the reason a lot of people have tagged me drama queen which I don’t care as long as I am getting the attention that I need.
They say when a lady is been tagged a drama queen and when she eventually gets into a serious relationship, she tend to mellow down; are you emotional?
I am drama queen when it comes to everywhere that is when I am on set or off set because I don’t like to be cheated but that does not mean I am not submissive or I can’t be tamed.
So what can someone do to tame a person like Nkechi?
Maybe 500Million naira
You are blessed physically, how do you feel when you walk around and people tend to complement you based on your back side?
The honest truth is that I am used to such complement because even while we were filming a street scene and I was required to walk around;
a lot of passer’s by was just screaming but because such is already part of me I did not mind because I won’t remove that part of my body.
Don’t you sometimes feel embarrassed when the compliment is too getting too much?
Never!! Because I know I have got a beautiful behind and I can’t be unhappy with what God gave me.
How do you feel when people tend to appreciate your curves more than the beauty itself?
They have no choice than to see the curves before the beauty because it is obvious and cannot be hidden; you cannot hide God’s blessings and I am very comfortable with it at all time.
I have always been comfortable with my body from day one. While I was growing up, I was very skinny but a very big ass and now while growing up, I have a bigger body and all my body parts rhyme together and the fact is God gave me a perfect fat leg to carry the big behind.
Do you still have a dream role you want to play?
Yes and that is the role of a mad woman because I want to portray myself as a versatile actor;
I have played quite a lot of roles and also I look forward to playing a ghetto kind of role where I will showcase the rough side of me.
What will you consider the most interesting part of your job?
There are a lot but the one I appreciate more was when I paid in dollars in the movie ‘Ghost and the Tout’ as produced by Toyin Abraham.
