Pretty upcoming Nollywood actress ,Oma Iyasara, granted an interview recently. Oma, who is a graduate of Mass Communication from the Imo State University, has featured in a couple of blockbuster movies. She talked about pornography in Nollywood, and her kind of man. Read excerpts below:
On pornography creeping into Nollywood and if its true pornography makes the movies more real
I don’t think pornography makes a movie real, the way the world is now, sex sells, so pornography is just a decoy to attract people to movies. But it doesn’t work for me because it’s not in our tradition and culture
On acting nude if the money is right
Yes, I may consider going nude to interpret a role but definitely not to the extent of going fully nude. Besides, that is why we have body doubles.
On her selling points and how it has helped her
I will say my selling point is my jovial attitude, and my eyes. Yes, I will say they have helped in a lot of ways and will still help in the future. My jovial nature has opened doors for me in ways I can’t explain; be it in people recommending me or just wanting to help me, because they just want to see me grow.
On her kind of man A good conversationalist with a good sense of humour is my kind of man, any day. If a man makes me laugh a lot, he has a chance to my heart. Then his manners and how he treats other people count. Though looks are not very important, it is an added advantage.
