Comedienne and OAP, LOLO1 in an interview with Punch opened up on her beef with fellow comedienne, Princess, her ongoing divorce, current and upcoming projects among other things.
See excerpts from the interview below!
On her marriage: My husband is a very private man and I wouldn’t want to put him out there. It’s not something he appreciates or cares about. We’re presently going through a divorce, but we have mutual respect for each other. We will do all we can to protect and nurture our lovely kids. We are also actively involved in the lives of our children.
On her beef with Princess: Sometimes, women have issues. At an event which held this month, she caused me to feel awkward. I felt slighted because her action was unnecessary. I had to give vent to my anger because I am human. Some of our colleagues waded into the matter and I believe that our differences will be sorted out. We’re human beings and we are bound to hurt each other at some point. But, we have to let it go and keep the ball rolling.
On if the female comedians in Nigeria can compete favourably with their male counterparts: All we can do is to keep pushing. Everybody has his or her own strengths. If we weren’t pushing and making a mark, those names I mentioned earlier wouldn’t come up at all. Of course, there is always room for growth, which is normal in any sphere of life irrespective of your gender. So it’s an ongoing process.
On her current and upcoming projects: I am currently on the set of Jenifa’s Diaries with Funke Akindele. I am also working on my own TV show, theGudu Morning Naija show on Wazobia TV; it is a breakfast magazine show that deals with politics, news, entertainment and health. I’m also working on a play, which will be staged later in the year while the Lagos and London edition of OgaMadamLive is currently in the works.
On if she has ever committed a fashion blunder: I once missed the memo to an event, so I arrived at the venue looking overdressed. For an informal event, I was decked in a super show-stopping dress. I felt uncomfortable and I have since learnt to always consider the nature of an event before I come up with a choice of attire.
