What happened to my marriage and career –Uche Jombo speaks opens up
By Rita Chioma,
Actress , Uche Jombo has refuted claims that her 2012 marriage to Puerto Rican, Kenney Rodriguez affected her acting career badly.
Last year , it was rumoured that the union, which is blessed with a son was in trouble, but the actress quickly addressed the issue on her Instagram page, pleading with bloggers to stop spreading negative news.
In a recent interview, the actress said the decision to choose movie roles carefully had nothing to with her marriage.
She said , “Marriage didn ’t stop me from acting regularly. Even before I tied the knot , I had already started selecting projects I do.
I choose my projects now because I am not interested in being in every film again.
Also, if people cannot see that I am good for a certain role , I don’ t need to convince anyone at my level . I have been acting for 18 years and I have matured in the business.
I got into acting at a young age , but I need more time to promote the projects I do and still focus on my marriage.”
Despite featuring as a women leader in a new movie, Dr. Mekam , Jombo says she doesn ’t have plans to venture into politics.
“My best friend in Nollywood, Desmond Elliot, is already a politician and do I like him since he became a politician ? I cannot say.
I don’ t have plans for politics, but I will still be vocal about Nigerian politics.
“I feel the way politics works all over the world has a lot to do with acting and I am already an actor.
I don’t think I want to be acting in my real life.Politicians literally act when they should take it as a profession , ” she said.
