Fair and pretty Nollywood actress, Peju Johnson has revealed how top Nigerian personalities harass her for relationship.
The actress admitted that some of them often get her number from different sources, but she rebuffs their advances.
“I get lots of them. It got to a point that I issued a stern warning to the people close to me about it. I told them not to give anybody my number without my permission,” she told Saturday Beats.
On whether her light skin had been an advantage to her career, the busty actress who just took delivery of her brand new Toyota Venza car said, “I am not sure it has. There are many actresses who are not fair-skinned, yet are doing very well in their careers. There are men who prefer dark-skinned women. I am naturally light complexioned; I did not alter my skin for the sake of any man.”
Asked what her favourite part of her body was, Johnson said, “I love all parts of my body but if I have to choose, I would say my face.”
The actress, who stated that she would be starting work on her first movie production this year in February, also noted that she would love to see a change in the way up-and-coming actors are treated in the industry. She said, “I would like to see a change in the way up-and-coming actors are treated. Many times, they are not paid, and I don’t think that is good enough.”
The role interpreter also stated how she makes her money aside from acting, “I bought the car with my hard-earned money. I actually paid for it in early 2020 but because of the COVID-19 pandemic, it could not be shipped to Nigeria until recently.
“People are entitled to their opinions. They are free to say whatever they like. I have found that people who don’t even know one are the ones that usually have the most to say about one. I am used to it and I don’t consider it to be a big deal anymore.
“Many actresses do more than acting. Many of them are influencers on social media and they have other businesses. Whenever they are contracted to represent any brand, they are well paid for it. I am an influencer and I also have other businesses. I sell female items. I don’t know much about male actors but I don’t think many of them do ‘influencer jobs’. I have read many comments on this issue online but I really don’t know why that is so. I only gave my perspective.”
