Why I’m Scared Of Marriage –– Actress Ebube Nwagbo Reveals

Nollywood actress, Ebube Nwagbo, tells Ademola Olonilua about her career, rumours and controversial love life. It is an interesting read. Enjoy:

A kiss scene I recall the most
The kiss scene I recall the most, not because of how good it was, was my very first kiss on set. I was caught unaware as it was my first time doing it and I had to do it over again as we had to prove to the audience that we were in love. Shooting it was very tedious for me because I had to do it several times, my first movie. It wasn’t funny unlike now I can do it because I see it as my job. The first kiss is something I will not forget.

The boy I will never forget
It has to be my school boyfriend. Even till today, people see me and still ask me about him. We met in my first year in school, second semester. We won the best couple on campus. We had this bond and everybody wanted to be like us. I got into the movie industry and it didn’t work out again. I really liked him. So far, I think that is the first relationship I had that I can really call a relationship. That is the first time I actually knew what love is. That is somebody I still think about today and there is no regrets.

The rumour about me going to church to pray for a man
What happened at that time was that I went to church and the pastor said if you want to do something for God, you come out and make a pledge with any amount. It was running into hundreds of thousands of naira. He said we could come out and do it for God, any amount that came to mind. I was one of those people that wanted to do it because I felt I was led to do it. That was it and they assumed that for me to do it I was looking for a man. The next thing I saw in the paper the next week was that I went to church to pray for a man. I really did not find that funny at all. I was not the only one that came out that day to do something for God but because it is Ebube, they assumed things.

About me being single
Yes I am still single. The reason is that I am someone who has always believed in love. It is a big deal to me so if I have to do it, it has to be right. I am a strong believer of love. I get lots of proposals; it is so crazy I do not know who to give a chance to. I think it is a price I have to pay for stardom. Sometimes when anybody comes my way, I do not know who wants to be with me for the right reasons. I believe when that day comes, I will definitely figure out who that person is. It is not easy! 

What I should be talking about is not relationship but marriage. I want to go into marriage and be in it for ever. No one goes into marriage thinking of divorce, but it happens. We try our best. I think I am kind of scared, but I just have to give it a try whether I like it or not. It just has to happen and happen right; at the right time.
