Why celebrities tend to marry one another -ACTRESS, OGE ANEKE


Nollywood screen diva, Oge Aneke has explained why she has been off locations lately. In this short but insightful chat, the beautiful and talented actress spoke about her concerns with Nollywood and also spoke at length about the common occurrence of celebrities marrying and dating one another. Enjoy.....



WHAT HAVE YOU BEEN UP TO LATELY?

I have kept a low profile for sometime now to give time and attention to my marriage.I’ll soon storm out great at the appropriate time.


IF YOU HAD THE POWER, WHAT WOULD YOU CHANGE ABOUT THE INDUSTRY?

I will sue for a repeal on piracy laws to ensure stricter enforcement and protection of copyright.


WHAT'S YOUR BIGGEST DISLIKE ABOUT NOLLYWOOD?

I think that sometimes we have the wrong focus concerning how our industry has to move forward. I think we are paying too much attention to money and too little attention to skills, techniques and capacity building. Nollywood should provide a training model for new entrants to hone their skills and give them confidence because a star without a successor is a failure.
Also we have an issue with distribution of contents. We still have too few cinema screens. DVD distribution is near impossible because of piracy; the biggest marketers are the biggest pirates. The kind of third party money you make from online viewers or any of those things is still pretty small. However, because you are not making good money from DVD or cinema you want Africa Magic to pay you a million dollars.



CAN YOU ACT A NUDE ROLE OR A SEX SCENE?

No, never! Acting nude or sex scene does not portray African culture and beliefs.
I so much believe that sex is sacred and should not be displayed on the screen. Though acting is a make-believe but your followers might be tricked into believing it's the right thing to do. I so much value morality, hence I do not intend to go against my values.



WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT CELEBRITIES MARRYING EACH OTHER?

Celebrities are mostly substitute for Royalty. Royals marry each other in order to perpetuate dynasties and so do celebrities.

It may however interest you and contrary to popular beliefs, that most celebrities, marry non-famous folks. The majority of them, you’ll find, aren’t married to other celebrities. But when they have stardom in common. It’s easier to relate to one another, and find someone who understands what you have to deal with as a celebrity, because they too are celebrities. Being a celebrity is not always easy. It is a very isolating thing. Because the world is full of folks, who are not famous. To be so much different than everybody, must be a lonely experience. You’ll find most celebrities, don’t actually like being famous. And I don’t blame them. I personally hate attention most of the time. I don’t like it. Imagine not being able to go to some places, It is very strange. There’s also the dynamics of, celebrities are on a whole different level than regular folks. They really are. Especially the biggest names, the biggest stars, they really are on a whole different level of evolution than most of mankind. That’s why they’re stars. They have talent, and a certain spiritual growth, that most of mankind completely lacks. So to them, the public are just a bunch of low lives. So they’re more inclined to gravitate towards folk who are on a similar wavelength to them. They don’t have very much in common, with the common man. They’re not common men or women. And the ones who do marry common folks, either do it because they want to keep some connection to the level of the common man, they want to marry someone ‘normal”, to help keep them “grounded’. They want to be a “normal” person, they don’t want to get too caught up in the world of celebrity. Which, is understandable.



Even though, to me, they’re more ‘normal” than “normal” folks. celebrities are what human beings should be. Everyone should be talented, and beautiful, and gifted. Everyone should be at the level our celebrities are at. That’s the idea of existence and creation, at least. To live in a world full of folks like that, that would be more ideal. More Utopian. And that’s probably where we’ll end up getting to, at some point. But now, it’s “normal” to not have fricken talent, to not be good looking, to not be gifted with some attribute or quality. Normal is being basically nothing, being at the bottom. That’s “normal” here. And folks, who do have talent, who do have beauty, who have some unique gift, they’re not normal. They become celebrities. Something seems off about that, to me the celebrity is the normal person. Everyone else, is just screwed up.
