In this chat with Potpourri, Seyi talks about her love life and several sundry issues:
Have you always wanted to be an actress?
I didn’t set out to be an actress. I joined the industry in 2009 through my younger sister who happens to be a scriptwriter. I joined the House of Wisdom caucus . I graduated in 2011 and also produced my first movie in 2011
What does s*x means to you?
S*x is a good thing, we are all s*xual beings. Our s*xuality is linked with the rest of our lives. It’s a sort of bond between two people, a form of expression that goes behond the ordinary intimacy shared. It’s a good thing.
What is your take on s*x before marriage?
I think it’s an individual thing. Once you are an adult and you think you are ready, go for it. Personally, I think s*x before marriage is good. Because it will make you know your partner well before going into marriage. So if there is anything you are not comfortable with, you have an ample time to correct it before actually going into the lifetime contract of marriage. Doing it before marriage also reduces adul-tery and forni-cation. It is also a good way of studying your partner before you get committed to him or her.
What will you consider the s*xiest part of your body?
I will choose my leg as the s*xiest part of my body. People often tell me I have got s*xy legs.
Can you date any of your colleagues?
Yes and no. Yes, because you never can tell where you will find love, but presently I will say no , I can’t date any of my colleagues.
Why are you called Eja Nla?
I got the name Eja Nla from D Banj. I love D banj so much. I love his music and personality so I just decided to come up with something unique and produced a movie around that name. The name stuck ever since.
Yes I have, and I don’t want to be heartbroken anymore. Heartbreak is not a good thing. When one is heartbroken it hurts and weighs you down. You feel like your life has been thrown into a puddle and the truth is that it’s the person that one loves that breaks one’s heart.
Can you quit acting for your relationship?
That is why I said earlier that I love a man who understands me for who I am and my man cannot tell me to quit acting because of our relationship.
