"It is a tough question but I will go with Jay-Jay because I know him and we relate well.
“He will not dribble me inside the house. Dribbling is for the field."
The celebrity whose father, Air Commodore Emeka Omeruah, was a Nigerian Football Federation (NFF) boss and former sports minister, said that he loved football and that he used to host a lot of young footballers in his home including Okocha.
In her words:
“My father loved football, national team players used to come to the house: Kanu, Okocha and a whole lot of people. My father was very interested in their lives as young players, and always wanted them to be better.”
Chigul, however, added that she never had a crush on any of these footballers because she had her eyes set on the entertainment industry.
