Nollywood actress, Uche Ogbodo made the rounds recently because of a picture she posted on Instagram. In the picture the actress sported a new haircut and dramatic makeup for a runway show.
Many of her followers came for her saying the look was “trashy” and “touty” while some of them applauded the artistic nature of the look.
In an interview with Saturday Beats, the actress addressed the backlash saying she did what she had to do as an artiste.
“In my past interviews, I have always said that I can do anything for my job. I don’t care what people think or say about me. It does not affect me in anyway and it is not going to make me cry neither would it make me feel bad about myself because I am a very confident woman.
“Instead of applause, I got comments that I look like a masquerade or I am very dark. I am tired of insulting people on my page. I have a very sharp tongue and if I start to talk, people would say I am rude and I would later have to apologise for it. What I have learnt about being a celebrity is that you can never satisfy everyone. My career demands that I look different at all times. I am going to post a picture of me as a blind girl and I don’t care what people say,” she said.
