Nige­rian en­ter­tain­ers are too broke for me –Maryam Charles

The Punch - - INTERVIEW - Sun­day Scoop,

Bud­ding ac­tress, Maryam Charles, caused a lot of drama when she ad­vised women to use what they have to get what they want. In a post on her In­sta­gram page, she taught women how to get things from their men dur­ing sex.

While some peo­ple felt she was pass­ing the wrong mes­sage, oth­ers opined that she was sim­ply stat­ing the truth.

In a chat with the ac­tress ex­plained the mo­tive be­hind her con­tro­ver­sial post. She said, “Hon­estly, I just feel that peo­ple don’t want to be real. I was ac­tu­ally play­ing around when I up­loaded that post and I am sur­prised that it got to that ex­tent. What I posted is nor­mal and the truth. If you want to get some­thing from your man, you know the right time to ask for it, es­pe­cially from the stingy ones.”

Charles also con­firmed that she used the tech­nique on her man. She said, “Yes, I ac­tu­ally do that a lot with my man and it works all the time. How­ever, I am only speak­ing to mar­ried cou­ples; I am not talk­ing to peo­ple who are just dat­ing.”

When re­minded that she was not mar­ried, she said, “Yes, I am not mar­ried but I’m in a se­ri­ous re­la­tion­ship. As a mat­ter of fact, I’m en­gaged. My man is based in the United States.”

On if she had ever dated an en­ter­tainer and if a re­la­tion­ship be­tween two en­ter­tain­ers could work, Maryam said, “I have never dated any­one in the Nige­rian en­ter­tain­ment in­dus­try be­cause they are all broke; they are too broke for me. I am a movie pro­ducer and I make my own films. I am a hard worker; I don’t be­lieve in us­ing what you have to get what you want in that sense. I work for my cash and my man sup­ports me too. I am a pro­ducer and I call my own shots.”

Stat­ing the high­lights of her ca­reer so far, the ac­tress said, “I have pro­duced about 10 movies and they in­clude Madam Cait­lyn, Enclosed Pas­sion, On Time, Bro­ken Path, and 39 Steps, among oth­ers. My ca­reer has been fun all the way and it has been by the grace of God. My sell­ing point is that I’m pretty and sexy; ev­ery­thing is on point.”
