Nollywood actress and one-time MTN model, Biola Ige is not taking lightly the quick spread of her explicit picture with colleague, Muna Obiekwe. Many things have been said about the pictures. Some say it is an actual shot of the two actors having an intimate time, some say it is a photo shopped picture, while others think it is a movies scene gone too far. In the picture, Muna Obiekwe is seen sucking and clutching the breast of Biola Ige in the picture.
In a phone chat, Biola not only confirmed that she is the lady in the picture but also gave a logical explanation for it. She has this to say about the whole thing, “I was going to remain silent on the photo being displayed on the internet however I realise that I need to set the record straight for my family, friends and fans who i love and respect. The photo in question was taking from the set of a movie called ‘Pregnant Hawkers’ in which I played a Hawker who was in a romantic situation with another actor. This movie was shot and aired two years ago. The photo circulating the internet right now is the photo from a scene in the movie and nothing more. If you watched the movie you will see that there is nothing to this movie other than the fact that i was playing a role.”
More after the cut
Biola says that she was merely being professional by acting according to the script. “I am an actress, it is a profession that I love and will continue to enjoy. I am required to play all sorts of roles. In each role I step out of being Biola Ige and go straight into ‘character’, the statement begins,” she said.
She also said that the whole fuss, is actually a plus for her because it will only make her more popular. “Whoever maliciously leaked this photo to make it appear to be something else has simply given me some great publicity. I have been through a lot of difficult things this year with the loss of my mom and a brief illness, that a simple photo from a movie scene from two years ago is the least of my worries. I have no further comments regarding this act to hurt my character. I look forward to acting more movies, and playing more roles to entertain you. Thank you all for reading,” she concluded.
The other person in the picture, Muna Obiekwe, has refused to speak on the matter saying he would speak when he is ready.
