I don’t like interviews because….. Ronke Oshodi
By Nwafor Sunday
A superstar and veteran Nollywood actress, Mrs Ronke Oshodi-Oke has said that she hates being interviewed in order to avoid misrepresented, misinterpreted, misquoted and perhaps to avoid being improperly edited by the interviewer.
Ronke who had a peaceful chat with one of the online Tv media, alleges that the said ‘Online Tv’ did not post all that she said during the interview. This she opined has brought insults from her followers to her Instagram, Facebook and Tweeter handle.
In the alleged quote posted online, Mrs Ronke Oshodi- Oke was reported to have said “I Can’t Cook for You If I’m The Breadwinner of the Family”. This she allegedly said when quizzed with this question ‘What is your take on the large number of celebrity marriages falling out’?
In her answer to that according to an online video extracted from ‘Broadway Tv’ “It is not just the industry. That is what is trending all over the world. You that is talking to me now, you are not a celebrity and you are not near to what we are doing at all. Are you telling me that all your families, everybody is okay? That is what is trending, that is it.
“Do you know why it is like that? It is because we have been exposed and everybody wants to work and earn money. Before in 30, 40 years it was our fathers that were earning money. Ladies don’t go to universities, not that they don’t go at all please don’t get me wrong but they don’t really go to universities.
“So my dad will say he cannot marry a graduate, in fact my father use to tell me that he cannot marry a nurse, do you understand? But now I will bring 50, you will bring 50 or I will bring 70, you will bring 30 or you will bring 70 and I 30, because we have to work hand in hand. So how do you think we can sustain, do you understand? It’s not ganna work,” she stressed.
“It is not because we don’t want to be in our husbands’ house or that we are not submissive enough to them, but it’s not ganna work. Am ganna pay the NEPA bill, I will pay school fess if you don’t have and you now come and expect me to cook for you, it’s not ganna work.
“That’s just it, it’s not ganna work because you want us to work hand in hand but if you are a man and you are doing everything absolutely everything, then I will ask you, you want me to give you money for food I gave you, you want me to give you schools fees I gave you and I gave you everything, what else do you want?
“That is when you can have total control on your wife, that’s just the truth of the matter. But if you do 60 and I 30, it’s not ganna work and so it is not because it is in the industry. Even if we are not in the industry, whatever that is ganna happen to anybody will surely happen.
“But there are some rude ladies out there, am very sorry to say it, even if they have five Naira they will make their husband believe that they have twenty kobo. But when that five Naira stops they will …. do you understand eeh! But bring this bring that, it’s not ganna work”, she stressed.
In her second video Actress Oshodi cried out and urged her fans to watch the said video very well in order to have a comprehensive and bird-view of what she meant. The popular Nollywood actress who insisted that the entire good thing she said was not published, was thus seen via her viral video crying and praying to have the full video which she believed is now on Youtube to be watched.
What is your take on this?
