Star of Rough Rider and a dozen other box office home videos, Oby Edozie, has taken a swipe at those who hold the opinion that that she is morally lax because she is an actress.

According to her, despite the raunchy and naughty roles she plays on television, she is definitely not a loose girl.

Insisting that she is clean, she quipped: “I have heard that actresses are loose but have you ever heard that Oby Edozie is sleeping around? Have you ever heard that Oby Edozie is hopping from one guy to the other? It is wrong for people to have such views. The fact that I am in show business does not mean I am are morally lax.”
At 6ft plus, Oby looks every inch intimidating. What with her looks and carriage?

She talks about the experience of being so tall and attractive: “I have heard that I am arrogant and pompous. People expect me to hug everybody that I come across. I speak only with people I know very well. I have no apologies for those who might feel offended.
People misunderstand me and think that I am a snub. I have heard that men say that I am intimidating. Any man that admires me should be man enough to walk up to me and tell it to my face. My looks may be intimidating but I am not. Any man that is intimidated on account of my looks is not a man but a child, a boy,” she emphasizes.

Early years
“My first movie was Love And Be Cherished. I came into acting after my lecturer at the Lagos State University, Sola Fosudo gave me a note to Zeb Ejiro . I got my first lead role after my third movie.” Ever since, she has acted over 40 movies and has grown to become one of Nollywood’s favourite faces after almost nine years in the industry.

“My growing up was very Christian. Father was a disciplinarian who never spared the rod to save the child. We were one happy family. At a very tender age when I told my classmates I wanted to be an actor, they all laughed and made jest of me because then, I was very skinny. I am not there yet but I am growing and I thank God for every day of my life.”

However, today, she has blossomed into a hot, sexy sought-after actress. How does she handle her male fans: “I am very polite. I try to have an excellent relationship with my fans. I know where to draw the line. Without them I wouldn’t be here today.”

Nollywood
Oby says that there has been tremendous improvement and growth in Nollywood between 1997, when she was a debutante and today: “We should not compare ourselves to Hollywood. The prospects are very bright. The industry is growing. Once upon a time, it was just a joke but it has transformed into the mainstay of a lot of families.”

She describes herself as romantic: “I listen to soft sentimental music. I am very romantic. When I love, I love to the extreme. I go all the way. I have been broken hearted before but its personal.”

Secret to success
Oby has a rising profile. Today, she is one of Nollywoods most sought-after faces. She talks about the secret to her success: “The secret of my success is hardwork. I play my part to the best of my ability. It is being you, being humble and consistent. Carriage and poise are very important. I keep learning. I love people criticising me because that is the only way I could take my act to the next level. I believe in being real and consistent. That is the secret to my success.”

Love life
When Sunday Sun enquired about her love life she responded thus: “You want to know about my love life? Wait till my wedding day. Once I get married to that very man, that’s when I would talk about love. That is when I would talk about that very man. So, stop bugging me.”

Dreams
“My dream ultimately is to get to Hollywood and be successful. I want to get married and have eight children at least. My vision was for 13 lovely kids but I have cut it down to eight. I love kids. I want to adopt them, at least, a boy and a girl. They are so innocent. I intend to establish a motherless babies home someday.”
