The Things My Big Ikebe Has Caused Me ––Actress Didi

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 with Vanguards's Damilola Sholola, she talks about her career, life and more:

How has it been so far?
It’s been awesome, interesting and crazy at the same time. Let’s just say I am having fun all the way.

What do you mean crazy?
Crazy in the sense of challenges you have to face

What movie was that?
Crazy Girls and I played it very well.

Did you kiss somebody in it?
Yes of course, I did everything a l*sbian would do. That’s me being an actor.

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 s*xy 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 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.

That’s when you started noticing how big it is?

Exactly, and It’s been like this. Then I never loved it, if I have to tell you the things that I’ve gone through because of my bum, you won’t believe me

What’s the craziest thing somebody has done to you on its account?

Craziest thing? A mad man actually grabbed my bum in public, while walking on the road. That’s like the craziest thing, what else can possibly be crazier than that? I was just passing, I wanted to get something and next thing, he just walked up to me and grabbed my bum from behind. When I turned, he was still holding it like a mad man and I screamed, I ran, left my shoes and everything. People just stood there and they were just laughing.

You like showing it off on Instagram, can you do a twerking video or ‘shaking your thing video?

I haven’t actually thought of that, although I have my twerking videos but I just feel that they are for me alone, they are personal, and I don’t have to put them on Instagram. Of course, when I take a good picture that shows my bum, I’ll put it on Instagram; they can see all of that, me posing in pictures and all that.

There’s a belief that girls with big bums are more s*xually active than girls with big oranges...

I will speak for myself, because I feel girls with big bums are usually very lazy in bed, but for me I’m very active, so, I’ll just speak for myself. I’m very flexible with my bum.

You are very flexible with your bum?
Of course, I use it very well

How often do you feel people should be having s*x?
As many times as you want; if you want to have it 100 times a day, good for you

You encourage it, you love it?
Who doesn’t love s*x? I’m not going to sit here and tell you I don’t like s*x. Everybody loves s*x; it is just natural so I’m not going to pretend I don’t like it. For me, I’m a very busy person so I don’t have that time to even enjoy it as much as I should or have it as much as I should.

What can you or cannot do while acting?

First of all, my job is to act. So, I am supposed to be able to play every character. I can do a s*x scene but of course, you know that it’s not like you’re going to have s*x 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 s*x scene. I can play as a l*sbian, in fact I have a movie that I played as a l*sbian and I played it so well.
