It can be hard sometimes to pursue a career that will put you in the limelight, especially when you have people who are threatened about your success and the busy schedules that come with it.
A young budding actress Chiamaka Nwokeukwu recently narrated how she had to dump her boyfriend to focus on her career.
In an interview with Potpourri, she revealed that her ex didn’t want her to follow up her career in acting even though he had not proposed to her.
The lady added that her ex-boyfriend was scared of her becoming a star, she noted that she can only quit her acting for her husband.
She said; “Yes, I dumped him for Nollywood because he didn’t want me to be a star. He didn’t want me to follow up my career and he had not proposed to me.
The guy can leave me tomorrow and now that I have the opportunity, I need to follow up. God blessed everybody with talent.
It’s not easy to have talent, most people cannot act and when you have the zeal and you can do something, you have to use it well.
It’s normal for a boy and girl to meet and if you really love your girl, you would let her go into what she wants. When I get married, automatically if my husband says he doesn’t want me to act again, I will not act again as long as he’s taking care of me.”
