Nollywood actress Ebube Nwagbo in a new interview has opened up on her career, life and more.
How did you become an actress?
I went for an audition like every other person and luckily. I was picked and got the lead role.
What are you currently working on?
I have just released my second movie entitled, Not Enough. It is my second movie as a producer.
What inspired you to go into movie production?
It was the passion I have for what I do. I also thought it was time for me to spread my tentacles, try out other things and develop myself. Also, I wanted to give back to an industry that has given so much to me and made me who I am today.
What are the basic challenges you face as a producer?
There are lots of challenges one faces as a producer and they range from creativity to originality. There is also the challenge of trying to come up with something different from the norm because most people are into producing now. Besides that, funding a production is not easy because you invest a lot into the project. With the economic situation of the country now, making sales is not guaranteed. And being accepted as a producer is not that easy because it entails a lot to be a good one, it is not a joke.
What message are you trying to pass through the movie?
The movie is centered on the youths of today looking for short cuts. They want to have the shortest cut to success and accomplishments in life. We need to set our priorities right at an early stage in order to secure our future. The decisions you make today, the life you live today determines your future. The movie also sheds light on the young girls of today that get pregnant without prior planning or knowing what they really want in life, thinking that getting pregnant for a man will make him marry or love them. Love can’t be forced. The movie, Not Enough also sheds light on weak parental guidance and peer pressure. It is a family story that has a lot of messages and lessons in it.
Has it been easy to combine acting and movie production?
It has not been easy combining acting and producing but it is what I love to do. It keeps me on my feet. I try to tell stories that are not only entertaining but also educating, stories with morals to learn from and messages to pass across.
Tell us about your most challenging movie role?
Every movie comes with its own challenges because you are being someone else at every point in time. But one of the most challenging movies ever was my first film as an actress. The movie was entitled, Arrested By Love. It was my first time facing the camera and I was playing lead. I didn’t have an idea of what I was going into or what I was doing. But big thanks to the cast and crew of that amazing job. They believed in me more than I believed in myself.
What did you like about the character you played in that movie?
I loved the character I played in the movie because I was a born-again Christian who changed a bad boy to a good boy by simply being herself.
Can you go nude for a movie?
I don’t think I can do that. However, I don’t have anything against whoever can go all the way. It is you doing your job so it shouldn’t be a problem, but personally I can’t.
What part of your body do you treasure most?
I love every part of my body exactly the way God made it. I don’t treasure any more than the other.
If you were to change anything in Nollywood, what could that be?
Stereotyping. One thing I would love to change in Nollywood is stereotyping. We should learn to have diverse characterisation. We all have been guilty of being stereotyped or stereotyping.
