Didi Ekanem Biography, Age, Husband, Curves, Movies, Instagram & Pictures.

Didi Ekanem is one of the fast rising actresses in Nollywood. Her bum marks her out, but Didi wants to be recognised for her talent on screen rather than for her bum. In this exclusive interview, she talks about her career, life and more:

What challenges are you facing? 
Challenges in the true sense of the word, like not really having producers believing in you and of course, you know yourself, you know you have the talent but the producer doesn’t see it your way. As an actress I have had to go the extra mile, not in the negative sense, to make people see beyond the looks and see deep into the beautiful talent within. I thank God I have gone beyond that now.

 How many movies have you done ? 
This year I’ve done over seven movies. First of all, there was Jump and Pass which came out two months ago or last month. I also did Dining with the Devil and Akan. I just finished Journey to the Dreamland with IK Ogbonna and True to Love with Kalu Ikeagwu . I can’t remember the rest off hand right now.

 What’s the first thing you look out for in a script? 
Before, what I used to look out for was how many scenes I was going to do but right now when I get a script, the first thing I look out for is the story. I just quickly go through the story and then after the story, I go to my character to know whether my character is challenging or not.

 What can you or cannot do in interpreting a role? 
First of all, my job is to act. So, I am supposed to be able to play every character. I can do a sex scene but of course, you know that it’s not like you’re going to have sex for real, probably just take off some part of your clothing and just act it. As an actor, I have to play every role; I can do a sex scene. I can play as a lesbian, in fact I have a movie that I played as a lesbian and I played it so wel

Can you let a guy grab your bum in a movie? 
Of course, in Jump and Pass, a guy tapped my ass. If it has to be real, there’s nothing there, it’s just grabbing my bum. 

How do you feel having one of the biggest bums in Nollywood? It’s a good feeling and a wonderful one. But I won’t lie to you, as much as I love it so much, I just wish people would focus more on my talent than my bum. All the concentration out there is on my bum not my talent. I would honestly wish people to see me as a talented actress not a sexy one. But my bum is not allowing people to see me deep down, to see the person and the talent. 

Seriously, is your bum natural? 
People always say this whenever they see my bum. Last time I was on Linda Ikeji, I read comments people made and there were more questions whether my bum was real or worked on. Some said it is made of plastic but you are here now and can see there is no artificial embellishment or augmentation. My bum is real, it’s like 101% real, I was born this way, I was born like this. I’ve had it since I was in JS1, in fact that was when I started noticing it.

What does it really take to be a good actress? 
To be a good actress, it takes hard work; you have to work on yourself very well and consistency. For me, I’m getting better every day and that’s because I work on myself all the time, exercise all the time and I work often How was growing up like for you? I had a wonderful experience growing up, I had an awesome time, I can’t complain. I had a very supportive dad, very encouraging siblings, I had everything I wanted and went to the best schools. 

Where did you school? 
My Secondary School was FGC Ikot Ekpene, and then I went to Macdonald Memorial School before gaining admission into University of Port Harcourt to study Linguistics and Communications.
