Controversial Photo: Nollywood Actor, Muna Obiekwe Opens Up
Nollywood actor, Muna Obiekwe, has now opened up on the controversial photo of him allegedly smooching actress Biola Ige's boobs. Biola had released a statement last week that it's a photoshopped picture of a scene in a movie, 'Pregnant Hawkers'. Now Muna has broken silence on the controversial photo.
When Vanguard newspaper spoke to him, Muna said:" I don’t remember the movie. I also don’t remember sucking Biola’s breasts. If the movie exists, that scene never took place. I do a lot of movies and I can’t remember what happens in all of them. The fact that I don’t recall means that the movie was shot a long time ago. Probably three or more years back. when love scene was in vogue with producers. I’m still searching for the movie to acquaint myself with the story. There has never been anything between myself and any actress that I’ve made a movie with. My romantic relationships have always been outside the movie industry. I don’t take my work home".
He added that: "I’m not a porn star and I never will be. Love making scenes are sometimes inclusive in a movie and should be done with class. Sometimes editors and directors don’t edit or direct well and it comes out wrong. Will you call any of the American or British movie stars a porn star? And please, I’m not a sex symbol. I’ve done two hundred movies, out of which only about ten of them have anything concerning sex. Why are people concentrating on those? An actor, before he can be acknowledged as one, has to play quite a number of roles in his career".
