NOLLYWOOD ACTRESS,  JENNIFER ELIOGU’S CAREER HAS SEEN HER WALTZ IN AND OUT OF PUBLIC FAVOUR ON ACCOUNT OF CHARM AND SCANDALS, BUT 17 YEARS AFTER SHE REGISTERED HER PRESENCE, THE IGBO SCREEN DIVA IS STANDING TALL AND PROUD. HER LATEST SELF-DISCOVERY IS MUSIC AND SHE CHOSE THE SOUL AND GOSPEL GENRE TO RELAY A FRESH PASSION. THE BEAUTIFUL ACTRESS LAYS BARE HER CAREER, JOY AND PAIN IN THIS INTERVIEW WITH LANRE ODUKOYA....
WHY I’M VEERING INTO MUSIC…
I really don’t have a reason for coming into the music industry so late. I guess it was meant to happen now. Over the years, I have been in and out of the choir. I have done music like a joke and played around. I like life performances. I recorded a few songs about four years ago. The push and zeal that I have now, I didn’t have before; but music has always been my first love. So, it is happening now and I guess this is just the right time.
RECESSION DID NOT DRIVE ME TO MUSIC…
It has nothing to do with that. I have been in the movie industry for 17 years. I started acting two or three years after secondary school and I have been relevant doing what I know how to do best. So, it is not about a career dwindling. In recent times, I released my own movie titled “From Within”, written and produced by me. I have also shot some movies for other people. Maybe, I am no longer your everyday actress. I might not be that shining star, but I am evergreen and I am comfortable with that. I am not leaving the movies anyway.
I DON’T CARE IF MY COLLEAGUES HAD WALKED THIS PATH BEFORE..
For me, music is not a competition; it is a mission. I am living a part of me that has been relegated to the background for too long. I am not competing with anybody. I am not doing this so that I can become more rated than anyone. I don’t know people’s reason for thinking my colleagues haven’t done well, but I think everyone has a right to expression be it through music or acting. I think it will do a lot of good if people just see my music for what it is and see me for who I am and let the competition be because I don’t think that is very good. I am happy for myself; I am grateful to God that it is turning out the way it is.
BEING TAGGED A CONTROVERSIAL ACTRESS…
I am not aware that I have that tag. I have never heard that about me. If that is the opinion of one person about me, it is okay. It doesn’t change anything and that is the truth. It cannot be everybody’s opinion of me. People’s assessment is not my estimation of myself. I can tell you that if you throw it on poll that Jennifer Eliogu contentious or not, controversial won’t win over non-controversial.
WHY I DON’T DISCUSS MARITAL ISSUES…
It is my privacy and I don’t think I should be discussing it.

ABOUT MY SPOUSE LIVING FAR AWAY…
Well, we have made two children together. We have businesses and careers and if we understand each other enough to allow ourselves live our dreams. I don’t think that is a wrong thing. The distance might not be the best, but we work it out. If it is not our problem, I don’t see why it is a problem for people.
MY TAKE ON MARRIAGE
Even when you stay together, it is not easy. Marriage is not easy; it is an institution, a complex one. There is no perfect marriage anyway; a lot of people chose to exist in denial and some people come out to say this is what it is. Whatever you decide to do is your private life. It is your business and not that of anybody. Whether we live together or not is not an issue because ordinarily marriage is complex on its own.
MY MARITAL STATUS…
I just told you that I have privacy and I have a right to it. I don’t discuss my family, my private life and I want us to leave it at that. But to satisfy your curiosity, to the best of my knowledge, I am still married and I have two beautiful children. People expect you to report the day-to-day activities taking place in your marriage to them just because you need to be on their good side or on the good pages. I don’t believe so. I tell people what I think they need to know. Other than that, I have a right to my privacy and I want people to respect that. We should grow up enough to respect people’s privacy.
ABOUT THE STORY THAT MY HUSBAND WANTS ME THROWN OUT …
It was a rumour. I don’t bother my head about rumours. I don’t have to accept or debunk anything to anyone. I have a family that appreciates and loves me. How many people do you want to explain to, or deny to? How many people are you going to debunk it to? Does it really matter because people already have an impression about actresses? Everything that happens in your life people will say it is because she is an actress. Before they even hear from you, they have already judged you. So, why would I now stand trial for no reason? I won’t!
MY REVEALING DRESS…
The man I am married to is not complaining.
WHY I TURN HEAD WITH MY DRESSES…
We all have our minute of madness. It might be an adventure turn bad, so I don’t know why people cannot move on. I have been 17 years in the industry and I don’t need you to tell me how am supposed to dress. I dress to suit my purpose. There is this dress on the internet that people have decided to fixate on. If I show you pictures of when I came into that event and you compare it to the one on the internet, then you would understand that it wasn’t deliberate to come out like that.
