  • You have not been in public
    scenes for a while, what happened?

This is simply because my life has changed. I got married, separated, and have
a child. I am re branding myself and that is why I have left the public scene.
That doesn’t really mean I have left showbiz but only took some time out for my
family. I am fully back but not as the former Uche Iwuji, I am a new Uche
  • What ‘s the difference
    between old and new Uche Iwuji?

I have always been involved in one scandal or the other. That will change
because Uche is now a mother who wants the best for her son.

    really want to change?

I used to go out a lot, I was always every where.

No, it does not put me in any form of trouble. It only made people know who I
was. Then, I was single so it is allowed. I am now a mother, things must
  • Your experience as a single

It is not easy; I must confess. I have to be there for my son who will be three
this year. I have my businesses that has been footing our bills. I hang out with
single mothers like myself. I thank God that every one is showing me love.
However, a man settles your bill when you are married but that has changed
because I fend for myself and my child. Nobody is asking for my account now
Is it true that men take advantage of single mothers?
No, I don’t think it is true
because that has not happened to me.
  • What has been married and
    single taught you?

I have learnt to be strong for myself. Separating from my husband was not a
good thing at all. Though, an eye opener. As far as I am concerned, being
single again is fun. I am free to do whatever I like. I have been able to get
over the break up when I look at my son. He is a bundle of joy
  • How did you meet your

No way. I don’t want to talk about that.

The marriage failed because we didn’t understand each other well.

    months, do you think that could be another factor?

Not really, I still respect and love my ex husband till date. In fact, I still
pray for him.
  • Does that mean you will
    accept him if he comes back?

Yes, I will a million times. He is the best gift I have ever gotten.
  • Who do you have to blame for
    your break up; The media, choice of career or your family members?

I blame it on the society. People were always saying rubbish about me. However,
I advise intending celebrity couples to understand each other well and shun
third party.

    affected your career?

Yes, in a positive way. People now see me as a matured woman. Some still
address me as a Mrs. It only boosted my career.
  • Why do celebrity marriages
    fail because it seems to be a trend?

Not only celebrity marriages fail, it happens everywhere. It is somehow natural
because people don’t really wish us well. They just say the marriage will soon
crash and it will. This is because many people have made the prophecy.
  • Do you think this will
    affect your child?

I thank God for my child. Sometimes, when I even talk about his father, he just
says “mummy don’ t talk about him”. They communicate on phone. He also calls me
because I have a child with him.
  • Is it true you are unlucky
    with men as purported online?

Yes , I’ m not that lucky with men but I think I was lucky at a point. To have
been married to my ex husband means luck was smiling at me. We only didn’t
understand each other well.

for me. I believe he will come back when he is ready.

    sex in his absence?

I am sex starved for now but I don’t really long for it. I have been without
sex for a while now
  • Many celebrities these days
    now have tattoo?

Yes, I also have it but it’s not just too obvious.
  • Sweet and bitter moments of
    your career?

When I started it was bitter. Then, I wasn’t getting the roles I wanted. But
things got better. I now get befitting roles and that is sweet. I don’t hope to
have more scandals in the future.
  • How do you rate a successful
    film: is it the money you get,the award or what?

It is the award and its impact on the people.
  • What do you dislike about
    being in the limelight?

Our lives is not ours anymore,it is not private. You even have to smile even
when things are not fine, but I think I am coping well.
