Nollywood actress, Uche Elendu has been out of the limelight for sometime. This is due to the fact that she got married in 2012 and has been busy with marital life. Uche is back to take her place and she recently spoke to the Sun about her career and getting endorsement deals. Read excerpts below:
I was at the peak of my career when I got married. I still believe that marriage is important in a woman’s life. After I got married, I had a three-year break because I had to take care of my daughter and keep my home. And after that, I returned to my job.
On how easy it was getting back in the limelight
It wasn’t easy, but funny enough, the way God made it; I didn’t have to make much effort. The movie that launched me back was Ada Mbano.
On Staying Scandal Free…
I am not in a position to judge anybody. Marriage is a union between two different people with different background and mentality; different thought processes, different ambitions, different characters and behaviours. Consequently, it is a normal thing for couples to have problems but it is your ability to keep your head down and bring things back to the way they used to be that matters. It is not as if I don’t quarrel with my husband. If you stay with a man for 24 hours in the same house, you are bound to have arguments, but it is your ability to be mature about it and the presence of the Holy Spirit in your life that can turn things around for good.
As a married woman, do guys still toast you?
(Laughter) Of course they do, if they don’t then I would have to re-examine myself. Well, I handle them like I’ve always done. I just make them my friends and tell them we can’t do more than that. You just have to handle it maturely because when you are in the public eye and you’re pretty, you have no right to expect people not to admire you.
On not having any endorsements
Actually, I think it is because I took a break as a result of my marriage, and the fact that I have always been in the East. But this year, I am moving high.
