Nollywood actresses nearly stopped my marriage – Lancelot Imasuen

0 0
Read Time:9 Minute, 4 Second

Celebrated Nollywood director and producer, Lancelot Oduwa Imasuen, is one man you cannot but admire for his professional exploits. He got married to his lovely wife, Osas, some six years ago, at the age of 36 years. The marriage is blessed with three kids. Lancelot says his initial dream was to get married at the age of 27. The couple takes us through their matrimonial journey.

After six years of marriage , the  journey has been exciting and memorable. “I and my wife are getting to know more about each other. Though marriage comes with its challenges, we thank God we have come this far and it’s getting really exciting. It’s not an easy thing for a woman to marry somebody in our business  because of the nature of the job. This is my 18th year in Nollywood and 32 years as an artiste. So, my wife understands the nature of the job I’m doing to earn a living.’

Late wedding!

I married at the age of 36.  But if you ask me what my regret in life is, I would tell you I have one or two. I wanted to pursue my academic program up to the PhD level. But that never happened.

Lancelot Imasuen

Again, I thought I would marry at the age of 27. At 26, I was already contemplating settling down. But because of the extended family system that is peculiar with Africans, I couldn’t actualise that dream.  I have always envisaged a small but united immediate family for myself.

So, I wanted to see how much I could be of assistance to my extended family members before setting out to build my own nuclear family. For me, late marriage comes with its own price. I was into a relationship for seven years that did not work out. The ex-lover  walked out of the relationship without any cause. It was so devastating for me.

I never believed I could remain  a bachelor  beyond  the age  of 29 or 30. But it wasn’t so. The important thing is not how far, rather it is how well .For six years now, I have been married with three kids. My wife is a treasure to me .Over the years, I have watched her perfect the art of understanding the kind of man she got married to.

Each time she sees me, she’s very happy and I try as much as possible to play my role as a husband to her.

Finding a wife in Nollywood!

There was no way I could have married an actress because I’m somebody that is greatly misunderstood. I cherish my wife so much because if she had listened to what my female colleagues told her about me, perhaps, I wouldn’t have been married by now.

However, it was after our wedding  that I got to know  how much some  actresses tried  to discourage my wife from marrying me. I was shocked when one of them came to my house after our white wedding to apologise to me.

I didn’t know she was my wife’s friend. She visited us in the house; while my wife was in the kitchen, she approached me to confess some of the negative things she told her about me that were not true.

The opposite sex would admire more from a distance, but they thought I was too strict to be called somebody’s husband. I suffered that fate because of the  movie industry. So , any woman that creates time to be with me could not understand that I’m a man that has taken time to create a dichotomy between my private life and my job. It was only very few of them  who understood my position.

As a matter of fact, my disposition to the job was to get to where I am  today; to make a name for myself and the industry. My insistence on professionalism robbed me of the opportunity to  be romantically linked to  my  female colleagues in the industry. In fact, any woman I approached then   would tactically avoid having anything to do with me.

But today, time is proving all that wrong. I have been able to create that demarcation. When we are on location, all those  professional ethics must be observed; I don’t allow sentiment to come between my job and love life, because if I’m emotionally attached to you ,I wouldn’t want to get you on the same production that I’m involved in .That’s me, and a lot of actresses did not understand my position.

In fact, when I was getting married, they told my wife I was married with kids  because, at the time I met my wife, I had travelled to over 20 countries. And during that period, people thought I had a family of my own. But they didn’t understand the important of the saying that  you must lay your bed the way you want to lie on it. That has been my guiding principle.

Tempted to quit

I was of marriageable age before I got married. I didn’t dabble into marriage. I was ready mentally, psychologically and emotionally. That’s not to say we have not had our issues. But I’m never  too proud to say, ‘honey I’m sorry,’ whenever I gaffe. And, on her own,

Lancelot Imasuen

she never feels too proud to say, ‘daddy, I’m sorry,’ whenever I’m able to prove that she has offended me. That has worked for us. My wife is loving, peaceful and extremely loyal to me. She loves what I do for a living and she’s my number one fan and critic. I’m always inquisitive to hear  her comment on my new productions.

Most times, I believe that marriages to celebrities are always for the wrong reasons. I did a thorough research to come up with a title of a film, “In Between the Lines”, which is a promotional film I did for the Federal Inland Revenue Service. The film is a love story on how and why most celebrity marriages don’t last. There is always a misunderstanding, especially when men who are not Nollywood practitioners, marry female celebrities. They watch a love scene, or see their wives kiss in a film, they tend to misinterpret her role in that film and real life situation. For us in the industry, it’s always the problem of never being around home. We are jumping from one movie location to another. It takes the grace of God and discipline for your spouse to understand your predicament.

Our relationship had so many detractors — wife

Attraction

Lancelot is somebody that is very different from  the way he looks. When I first met him, I had my impression about him. More so, a couple of other people had told me a lot of negative things about him. But despite that, I took my time to understudy him. Basically, he’s a nice person, very down to earth .He does not like anything to bother him and he’s a sincere person at heart.

How I met him

I met him at a bus station in Benin-City. I was on my way to Lagos, just like he was. I sat beside him, somehow, we got talking and, along the line, we exchanged phone numbers. The rest is history.

Familiar with his name!

Yes, I think I was particularly interested in him and his works. This is because of where he comes from (Benin). In fact, before I met my husband, I wasn’t a big fan of Nigerian movies. But whenever I saw any movie directed by him, I wanted to watch that movie because I knew it would be a good movie.

Moreover, my sister, who  used to be a very big fan of Nollywood movies encouraged me to watch movies directed by Lancelot. That’s how I really got to know him and his works on screen.

My reaction at the bus station

Actually, I sighted him from a distance. I had seen him a couple of times on television. I just said in my mind, ‘oh! This is Lancelot’. Then, I walked pass him and acted as if nothing happened. Fortunately, I was privileged to sit beside him in the bus. I didn’t allow the joy of sitting beside a superstar overwhelm me.

Proposal

Initially, I rejected his proposal. But much later, I accepted him. What happened was that, at first, I really didn’t know much about his person. Again, because he was already a superstar, I had to seek advice from friends and well- wishers, who tried to discourage me from marrying him.

Somehow, I was confused but, on second thought, I said to myself, ‘let me get to know more about this man that everybody is trying to castigate’. And when I did, I discovered that he wasn’t that kind of person many people thought he was. When I found out he was much more different and a nice person, I accepted his marriage proposal.

But even during our introduction, some detractors told me he was married with kids, but I was not bothered.

What it takes to be his wife

It takes someone who is peaceful, kind and who will always be there for him.

What I don’t like about him

I used to complain that he’s always busy and that he throws his clothes around in the house.

Missing him

In the early stage of our marriage, his not always around bothered me a lot, but, with time, the understanding is getting better. Sometimes, it can be lonely, but with the kids around, coupled with working on my project, which is fashion designing, I’m busy and less bothered. I don’t feel it any more.

ChanceIt’s been awesome.

I give God the glory. If I have the chance to do it all over again, I will do it with him. Yes, there are challenges but I think it’s just a learning process. When you have issues in marriage and you have someone who tells you the truth about what goes on, you are bound to retrace your steps. I thank God we have come this far, and I know that we are going to be together forever.

Nollywood: Why people accused me of being gay — Benson Okonkwo

0 0
Read Time:7 Minute, 59 Second

Tall, well-built and handsome, Benson Okonkwo a.k.a ‘Mr Packaging’ is riding the crest of success in Nollywood amidst rumours that he is gay. In this engaging interview with Showtime Celebrity, the soft-spoken actor speaks out on his gay story, journey to prominence and much-touted romance with actress,  Nkiru Sylvanus…Enjoy!!!

As a ladies’ man, have you ever been threatened for any reason?  
Yes. Some weeks ago, an unknown  lady walked up to my security guard and left a note with him. She warned me to step down for her boyfriend who was a strong contender in the just-concluded City People’s Face of Nollywood award.  She didn’t stop there, as  she kept calling me and warning that if I didn’t step down, she would deal with me.  

Why do you like to be called a ladies’ man?
Why not? I’ve got all it takes to be a ladies’ man.  I am hot, I am a head-turner anywhere I go. But it is not all ladies that say “hello” to you  that you respond to. This is because I have a girlfriend I am seriously in love  with. I believe one is enough.

Benson Okonkwo

What inspired you to go into acting?
I love acting and usually acted for my siblings when I was growing up. It was my mother who advised me to get  registered with the Actors Guild of Nigeria. Later, I registered with the Enugu State chapter of the guild when late Pete Eneh was the chairman.  My mother even provided the money with which I registered. That was how I started my acting career.

Does it mean you didn’t set out to become an actor?  
I have always known that I’m good looking.  I have all it takes to be a model as well as an actor, but my mum introduced me to the trade. And so far, so good, I am not regretting it.

What’s your reaction to the issue of  sexual harassment in Nollywood, considering that you were once accused of being gay?

Sexual harassment is everywhere, even in the banking sector. Thank God  I have not been sexually harassed before now. It is not about how many producers or directors you sleep with. What matters is if you are talented. You can sleep with everybody without being able to deliver. But if you are good and God is by your side, you can go places. Actually, a colleague of mine was the brain behind the gay rumour.  They feel threatened because of my good looks.

Have you ever been approached sexually by the same sex?
Not at all. It has never happened to me.

Are you saying homosexuality does not exist in Nollywood?
I don’t know if it exists, but I have not experienced it before in the industry – although I have been harassed sexually outside the industry. When they approached me, I simply rejected their request, telling them they met the wrong person. I might look like a gay man, but I’m not.  Interestingly, I try to convert them to become  my friends whenever they approach me.

How many movies have you starred in so far?
I have starred in not less than 30 movies and it’s still counting.

Of all the movies, which would you consider most challenging?
The movie I did with Ifeanyi Onyeabor which is yet to be released. The movie is titled, “Games Town” starring myself, Mama G and many other stars. I sustained an injury while on location.  I fell off the bus while playing  a kidnapping scene. In the movie, I kidnapped Kenneth Albert, and had to  jump with him from the bus. Unfortunately, the location driver suddenly zoomed off, leading to my  falling flat and rolling on the ground.  I was really injured in the process.

Did you actually date Chika Agu?
Chika Agu is very close to me as a colleague. I didn’t date her and cannot date her. She is like a sister to me. My mother knows her very well and  we even attended her mum’s burial rites.  I didn’t date Chika.

There was a picture where both of you were cuddling in a pool. Was it a movie scene?

There is nothing attached to that. The picture was taken when I attended her mother’s funeral rites at her village. We  visited their village stream. I was just trying to cheer her up. She was wearing her top, and I was wearing my singlet and shorts.  There is nothing passionate in the picture.

What is Nkiru Sylvanus to you?
I met  Nkiru Sylvanus in 2008. That was on the set of a movie directed by Theodore Anyaji. The movie was titled, “Agency”. While we were shooting the movie, she was nice to me. She is a wonderful actress with a heart of gold. I have worked with so many Nollywood stars but Nkiru is different. She has always been there, supporting my career in any little way she could. I appreciate her so much for always being there for me. She is like my “Madam”. I love her acting prowess.

Is it true that she likes young actors?
I’m not aware of it. I am just hearing that for the first time.

What’s the secret behind your charming looks?
I started my career as a model, so I  have always liked to look good. Even in Nollywood, I am known for my dress sense. That’s why I’m called  “Benson Mr. Packaging”. My fans also love me because of the way I dress. I am crazy when it comes clothes. I also like to combine colours well. I have always loved fashion and inherited the attribute from my mother.

Benson Okonkwo

What has fashion done for you?
It has given me fame and so many roles in movies. Because I costume myself, most times the costumiers recommend me to directors. It has taken me places and also makes me stand out.

How did you make the City People nomination for the ‘Face of Nollywood’ award?

I got an email telling me I had been nominated for the Face of Nollywood award alongside Uti Nwachukwu, Kenneth Okoli, Walter Anger, and many others. When I got the mail, I promised myself I was going to do a lot of campaigning to emerge the winner. I thank God that people know I am good at what I do. I wish I had won the award.

Which of your works do you think gave you the nomination?
I don’t know, but I would mention movies such as “No Man’s Land”, “Wicked Uncle” and “My World.”

When you heard of the ‘Sexiest in Nollywood’ contest, what came to your mind?

As I told you before, I know I am hot and a head turner. I was not surprised. I knew it was one of those things I deserved as an actor. I said “thank God that Vanguard has decided to recognise Nollywood.”

The first edition was won by Jim Iyke, while Desmond Elliot bagged the second and the third edition is gearing up. With big names like Ramsey Noah, what do you think are your chances of winning the contest?  

I am among the top 22 contestants. I know I will go far. I also thank my fans for their votes. I’m  thinking  about my chances, but I want to win.

What is sexy about you?
I’ve got a charming smile, great height, romantic eyes and good posture.  I am a head turner anywhere I go.

How do you keep yourself the way you are?
I don’t really work out much because I am always on set. But  I’m always very conscious of my diet.

Before you came into the movie industry, would you say you had a crush on anyone?
(Laughs) No comment.

If you had the chance to pick one actress to spend a lonely night with, who would that be?
(Laughs) No comment.

What are you working on presently?
I am working on a movie and my saloon. The most recent movie is a Christian movie I did with James Onyeakpor and it will soon be out.

How is the pay like in Nollywood?
When we started newly, we were paid depending on scenes and the number of times we made appearances. A scene was about N1,200 and really not worth the stress. But we did that because of the passion we had for the profession. I thank God the pay has improved now. I know that with time, it will be much better.

Who is the woman in your life?
She’s called Emerald. We’ve dated for about 9 years now, and I love her so much. I met  her during my secondary school days. I plan to marry her as soon as I’m financially alright. She understands and knows one or two things about me.

Nicki Minaj Steps Out Wearing DJ Khaled’s Engagement Ring!

0 0
Read Time:46 Second

In what people are beginning to think is the biggest publicity stunt in recent times, Nicki Minaj seems to have agreed to DJ Khaled’s “wedding proposal.”  The curvy singer hasn’t responded to the request for marriage which was awkwardly aired on MTV but these pictures, which show her rocking a huge engagement ring, might tell a different story.  

The ring appears to be the exact same $500,000 diamond rock which DJ Khaled unveiled in his heartfelt proposal.  Nicki wore yellow jeans and a neon pink hat with her name blazened across the front as she was pictured leaving Crustation Restaurant in Beverly Hills.  

The pair aren’t even dating, though Minaj currently IS single and is probably dwelling on a decision.  US superstar Khaled was talking with MTV when he pulled out the giant diamond ring and proposed to Minaj.

Nollywood: My Marriage Is Intact – Funke Akindele

0 0
Read Time:1 Minute, 26 Second

Star actress Funke Akindele  finally broke her silence on her alleged failed marriage and she said she is heading to go to court to clear her name and the issues.
 
 The news of her troubled marriage was first reported by The Nation, so Funke Akindele has forwarded a message to the media house(The Nation).
 
 The message reads: “I read in the newspaper that I am divorced.
 
 What proof do you have? And I am taking this to court because my marriage is intact.
 
 You guys are rumour mongers. Funke Akindele Oloyede.”
 
 It was reported on Tuesday that the actress may have been separated from her husband, Kehinde Oloyede, son of former Iyaloja of Oshodi market.
 
 This is after Kehinde Oloyede himself announced a “separation” via his facebook page the previous day.
 
 He said: “It is with heavy heart that I am announcing the separation of me and my wife, Mrs Olufunke Akindele.
 
 We have both agreed to go our separate ways because of irreconcilable differences.
 
 We are still best of friends and we would forever remain good friends.”
 
 The statement, which the actress’ husband has since deleted from his facebook wall, generated concerns among the star’s fans, who made the issue a major topic on the social media.
 
 All attempts to reach Funke earlier, failed.
 
 Her elder sister, who is also her spokesperson, Mrs Ayo-Ola Muhammed, failed to make an official statement she promised when contacted because, according to reports, the actress asked that no statement be made on the issue.

NIGERIA: How Tony Tetuila Helped Me Where I Am Now – Basket Mouth

0 0
Read Time:1 Minute, 58 Second
Back stage at the Rothmans Groove tour which held @ TBS in 1998, there I was seated with the likes of The Plantashun Boiz,Dr. Fresh,Remedies and more…I was just a young boy trying to weigh his options on what direction to go with his career as drumming,rapping,producing and comedy were few of my options.
 That night was the 1st time I met Tony Tetuila, one of those humble guys you come by,he was warm and accommodating considering the obvious fact that I was nobody in the industry.
Fast forward a few months later, Comedy had won me over and in the course of my hustle and journey to where I'm yet to get to, I bumped into Tetuila  in Festac, just about the time his single 'you don hit my car' came out.
 
We reconnected while playing catch up. We had common friends so 'bumping' into each other became a tradition. The 1st time he saw me perform @ a concert was at a gig The Plantashun Boiz used to host @ the Den in Ikeja.
 
I must have impressed him because not long after that night, I got a call from him asking that we meet up. We did and he took me for a meeting in Lagos Island (Shell Office). A director at Shell was retiring and a send-forth party was being held in his honour. My performance fee then was N10,000, Tony pushed it up and convinced the client to pay N30,000 which they paid cash. Prior to this, they had never heard of me and only used me because Tony believed in me and stood up for me, convincing them to buy in.
 
I was paid in full a week to the show.
 
After picking up the cash I went straight home. Now here I was,  a young comic with his 1st major pay-out of N30,000. Considering the fact that my 1st performance fee was N300 (1%) of what I had in my pocket,I couldn't help but to thank God.
 
I got home,gave my mum N25,000 and kept N5,000 from which I bought a shirt,pants and shoes from Tejuosho market to wear for the event. Ready for my first big show.

Nollywood: I’m crazy about: Tiwa Savage -showbiz moniker

0 0
Read Time:6 Minute, 33 Second

BAYELSA State-born David Etete popularly known with the showbiz moniker, P.R.E. which stands for Pretty, Real and Entertaining is a budding songster with a
difference. With one of his videos, Let Me Know enjoying massive airplay, the vivacious songwriter, singer and label owner has also cornered Tuface, Timaya, Dammy Krane and other mesmeric acts for musical collaboration to blow the minds of pundits and cynics alike.

HOW I started professional music

Music has always been my first love and I knew I would later do it in life no matter what. I was actually at the Greenish University, UK studying Business Administration but I had to make a detour when I realized that it wasn’t what I really wanted to do. My foray into professional music began four years when I was with a group called Twisted Minds. We covered a good mileage and when the group split, I decided to go on musical sabbatical and attended the London School of Sound Engineering where I fine-tuned my skills in order to make riveting music in such a saturated market.

Working with Tuface

It was an amazing experience working with Tuface. As we all know he’s legendary in both Nigeria and Africa . He inspires me a lot because of how humble he is and all what he told me in the studio when we were recording the song, Take It Up. I’ve always known Tuface for a long time, I used to see him around and he also told me that he’s a kind of person who listens to a lot of upcoming artistes in order to know where the music industry is heading at every point in time. He had heard my songs before we were introduced by a mutual friend in order to make the collaboration happen.

How I hope to be at peace with my team

I own my record label, Twisted Minds Records first of all and I have a strong team with me. These are not individuals who just work for me, but they are my friends. We try as much as possible to respect one another so that we don’t cross parts to a level where a split would become inevitable or have a controversial issue in our camp.

Upping the ante

At the end of the day, I’d say that a good music is good enough regardless of what the norm is at the moment. We’ve come to see that even slow songs can also do well at the clubs, for example; Burna Boy’s Like to Party. At the end of the day, my only plan is not looking at any other person or what they’re doing in the industry. My plan is to be real me and make good music that will appeal enough to the people. I believe with this, my music will travel as far as it should.

About signing artistes on my label

I have thought about it but I’ve  not signed any artiste yet. I’d like to be at a certain position in my career before I start that phase of it because I won’t like to sign someone and use him to experiment. I’d like to know the game inside out and take my career to a certain height so that I can be equipped enough to help other individuals build their own career as well.

Plans for debut album

Well, I have loads of songs though, I’d always like to say that the album will come when the demand for it is ready. I’m working with a lot of people on this. By way of collaboration, I’d be engaging Dammy Krane in my work. I have Timaya and other top acts I’d like to keep mum about for now. There are several other songs in the pipeline but if I start telling it now, it will finally mean squeezing the jam out of the doughnut. And without sounding immodest, I have an archive full of songs, but I have to study the timing to drop whichever one I choose.

Nigerian singers I’m crazy about

Right now, I think I’m loving Tiwa Savage’s album which dropped just recently. It’s crazy and I’m loving her sound. I love a couple of other Nigerian acts but I don’t want to start naming names.

About my look

Yes, a couple of times people have said I don’t look like a Nigerian, but the truth is that I’m actually more Nigerian than not. My father is from Bayelsa while my mother is half Igbo, half British, so that’s where my look comes from. I decided to grow the dreadlocks which is nothing genetic. I grew my hair about three years ago, not necessarily because of my brand but I’d always wanted to grow dreadlocks when the time is right. It adds a bit of style to my look and I appreciate it.

My background

I was born and brought up in Festac Town for the first eight years of my life and at that point, I really got to see what life could be like without being so privileged. Later on, God made it possible that my family was able to move to the Island after the first eight years of my life. I had a very good childhood and I was very exposed. I wouldn’t say that there was a particular time that I hawked to fend for myself but I remember there was a time when my jean trousers were local, shirts and shoes too were also of poor quality because that was all I could afford then. Life was sweet as a kid.

My projection in five years

I hope to have gone very far and be a household name in the industry. I also hope to be able to take my music farther than my country and make it international.

My forthcoming work with Dammy Krane

I just did something hot with my man, Dammy Krane which is a single dropping next month. Of course, there will be a video for that. In fact, the video would have been ready before the single comes out. I don’t like to rush things. I’m looking at shooting in Nigeria and my team and I am still rubbing minds as to which video producer to engage for the project. We’ve concluded the recording of the single, right now we are going to locations to shoot.

My hobbies

Outside music, I like extreme sports. At my leisure, I go court-biking, fishing, swimming and those other hard exercises order than going out drinking and idling with lazy minds. I love to travel and I enjoy foods from different parts of the world because I’m a lifestyle connoisseur. Like when I go fishing, it depends on what season it is; there’s fishing and non-fishing season.

In the fishing season, you go fishing when there’s high tide because that’s when the fishes come out. High tides change  at the different times of the year. If you want to go fishing, depending on what type of fishing it is, if it’s self-casting, places like Eko Atlantic behind Eko Hotel and the little ponds you find behind Lekki expressway are very good places for fishing. If it’s deep sea fishing, you need to get on a boat and go about an hour and a half or two hours to really cash the big fishes.

Senator Yerima Is A Waste Of His Father’s Spérm” – Comedian Gbenga Adeyinka

Read Time:1 Minute, 6 Second

Nigeria's celebrities have been airing their opinion concerning the underage marriage issue. Comedian, Gbenga Adeyinka took time out to lash senator Yerima with this write up.

Good people, so sorry to disturb you this rainy afternoon. I just read the response from a truly sick Senator Ahmed Yerima, a 2 time governor, a 2 term senator and truly a sick pervert trying to justify Child Marriage.??He says that child marriage is a solution to abortion and prostitution.

I guess it also must be a solution to Embezzlement, Bad leadership, Insecurity and all the other problems that he and his type have heaped on our nation since independence.??If it is not that I was brought up not to insult adults, I would have called him a sorry excuse of a human being and a waste of his father's spérm but I will not. ??

I will only end this by telling him that nothing he says can ever justify marrying a baby as a wife, even if he claims they don't sleep with them at a young age. ??Since he likes Egypt so much, I will end this by praying that may the fleas of a thousand Egyptian Camels infest his pubic area and armpit.
Agbaya oshi!
