Nollywood Damsels Who Dumped Their Boyfriends For The Industry

He said girls in Nollywood don’t stay in marriages — Lizzy Gold Onuwaje 
Lizzy Gold Onuwaje isn’t new to the world of show business.  Her foray into the make-believe world started in 2006, when she won the Delta State Pageant as Miss Delta State. Then she tried her hands at the Most Beautiful Girl in Nigeria Pageant (MBGN) where she emerged as the second runner-up.

Like most of her peers who had the undying passion to get into acting, Lizzy had hers too, but it didn’t go well with her boyfriend at the time. She said:
“Initially, he was very skeptical about it. He said girls in Nollywood don’t stay in marriages. To me, it depends on individuals. I don’t think it’s true, because so far, some people like Omotola have kept their marriages. But he saw that I was very passionate about it when I went as far as attending an acting school in Lagos, so he let me be. I told him, it’s either he allowed me do my acting or he let me be. So he allowed me do my acting.”

Lizzy was quick to add “The affair didn’t crash because I went into acting. The basic truth is he doesn’t have money; so I decided to end the relationship. I dumped him in 2013 because he didn’t have much in terms of money and he didn’t have any push for my kind of man”.

He believed I would be snatched from him — Peggy Onah
Though not yet what you would call a popular item, Peggy has  got it going and hardly stays out of jobs. She opened up to Potpourri recently that her boyfriend almost checkered her ambition but she resolved to follow her heart and what her heart told her was “ run, run, run”.

“I don’t know how most men perceive the world of  acting. It isn’t the way they see it. They believe anybody going into acting would be soiled by greed and wantonness. My boy friend believed I would be snatched away from him. He asked me to quit and I was just beginning to pursue my acting career. I  couldn’t quit, besides, if he really loved me, he would have stayed. I can sacrifice my career when I’ve   achieved my  dream  in the industry. But now that I’m still striving  to hit the top, I can’t sacrifice it,” she said.

He was scared I would become wild – Chiamaka Nwokeukwu
Chiamaka said in her interview:
“Yes I dumped him for Nollywood because he doesn’t want me to be a star. He doesn’t want me to follow up my career and he has not proposed to me. The guy can leave me tomorrow and now that I have the opportunity, I need to follow up.

When I get married, automatically, if my husband says he doesn’t want me to act again, I will not act again, as long as he’s taking care of me.”
