Nollywood Actress Uche Ogbodo Says She Was Not Married To The Father Of Her Child.

 Nollywood actress Uche Ogbodo in this interview opened up on her past life and why she decided to work on her body,
..She talks about life as a single mother,her relationship with her baby daddy, Arthur Apo, and the real reason she refused to abort her child.






Enjoy it.


What led to your decision to work on your body size, was it criticism?



No, not really. I don’t care about body shaming actually. It’s one of the things that happened in my life years back that made me take this step to make myself a better and happier person. My daughter is now four-years-old. Before I had her, I had issues with my ex. So, I told myself that if I want to do what I want to do, I have to lose some weight, some baby weight and all. I had to re-orientate myself. The bottom line is that I am happy.


Losing weight could be quite challenging, did you at any point feel like giving up?


No, I never did. The minute I hit the gym, I knew the results I was looking out for and I never looked back. Each time I look in the mirror, I see a more beautiful version of myself. I’m happy I never gave up. Now, I have started a movement, Body Positive With Uche Ogbodo, which is designed to inspire women to work on themselves. I have noticed that some women go through a lot, and seeing the changes in their bodies, some get depressed and even contemplate suicide. So, I knew such women needed a push to look better and become happier and I decided to become that push for women. Nobody gave me that push before I hit the gym, but I want to inspire other women to find themselves. That’s how I want to give back to the society. I want to help women see how beautiful they are. Nobody is ugly.



What actually happened between you and your ex?



It’s part of life. I don’t want to go back to that because whatever happened in my life happened for the best. God has a reason for it to happen. I’m happy and that’s all that matters.


So, you don’t think you made a mistake?



I’m happy it (the relationship) didn’t work out. I’m not an advocate for people staying in a relationship they are not happy in.

If you are not happy, go away. It is not a do or die affair. You don’t have to die in marriage. If it is no longer convenient for you, walk away. Don’t care what people are going to say; just move on, it’s your life. There are other means of happiness lined up somewhere. So, come on, move on girl!



But you believed in him before you married him?



No, I didn’t marry him, never married him. I’ve never been married but the media portrayed me as a married woman. I was in a relationship with someone and it lasted about a year and then we broke up. We were engaged, waiting to get married actually, but the minute we said that, everything just fell apart. So, about a month after we parted ways, I found out that I was pregnant. I didn’t want to tell anybody about it. I just wanted to reflect on my life.

I was like ‘should I go back to him because of this pregnancy or should I just move on?’ It took me about nine months to realise that I didn’t want that kind of a man in my life, because he would only drag me backwards, and then I forged ahead.



How involved is he with his daughter now?



He hasn’t been involved because initially, he said ‘this girl is not pregnant, she just wants to get at me’. Until I went to America to have my baby, he wasn’t interested. I wasn’t interested in saying anything to him as well. Over the years, I’ve been able to take care of my child alone, and I don’t mind. It’s been a great experience!


What would you say is the major reason actresses barely last long in marriages and relationships?



I don’t think relationship is hard for any Nollywood person to handle. I want to believe that we are a blessed people. Nollywood exposes you to better opportunities and takes you to greater heights.

It gives you exposure that a businessman or banker will never have. So, whatever you do, all eyes are on you. And sometimes, you are entangled with people that don’t understand you or your job and they expect you to be a super woman. You meet people who don’t compliment you. It happens everywhere and even to those outside entertainment.



What have been the challenges of single motherhood?



It has been tough. I never believed I would be a single mother because I’m a Catholic.
We preach against abortion and all. Then, when you have a covenant with God that you are going to be a mother and a good wife, you don’t ever want to break up with your husband when you get married. But things have changed. I thought about marrying the father of my child but the relationship didn’t work.

It’s unfortunate. This child came as a blessing; maybe, God wants me to have this child in order to teach me a lesson. My parents told me that I am not married, that I should move on with my life.
I was like ‘I think there’s a reason for this child growing in me. I didn’t get pregnant while in other relationships, so why this one? Why now?’ There’s a reason for this child and I’m keeping her. That’s why I kept her. It hasn’t been easy.



What’s next for you, any plans for marriage?



I am still positive. I want to get married. I’m a Catholic. I want to be in a relationship where I would be happy, where I would be allowed to live the way I want to.
I want to be happy. So, if you want to make me happy then, come on.



So, there’s no one in your life at the moment?



There is actually, but we haven’t defined it yet.


Do you have any new project you are working on?



I had a job in the cinema about two years ago. It was premiered in London, Switzerland and Spain. Now, I’m doing more jobs for myself. I’m now more into producing my own movies.

  1. That's the beauty of life. Once it deals you a bad hand, you become a philosopher by fire or by force.

    1. That’s for the wise ones. Some people don’t know how to turn it to philosophy and they end up being stuck in the loop , depressed or sad forever. I know people who I wish became philosophers instead.

  6. Uche I love the fact that you have moved on. Guy man is a serial husband and all Enugu girls was on his case He lies a lot and he has no money. Thank God that he didn't come to your village with his umunna, he hired people from Enugu and hijacked his parents to your place. His parents didn't even know he was going to get married that day of your introduction. Hahhahha.

    Uche you changed your mind on him when other babes he promised marriage and impregnated started calling and harrasing you. It was then you knew that he was broke too.

    That decision you made to have nothing to do with him is the best for you and that baby.

    Very importantly, if you read here and read this, please be praying for your child so she doesn't share in whatever is following her father's family. It's terrible . The last I saw the guy at coal camp mehn, ona emezi ka ihe m Amaro oo.

    5. I don't know why Uche keeps denying her marriages..Dis was even her second marriage..Her first marriage was to Uche Elendu's relation who was based in Europe..They also did traditional marriage and her dowry was paid before d marriage packed up .she has since returned d dowry paid.. There was a time she was dragging d guy with Tonto and d guy was fucking Tonto Dike then and Tonto refused to let go even though she knew he was married to Uche Ogbodo..D marriage packed up when d guy came our of jail..
      So what is Uche saying that she was never married to anybody before? Even if she denied marrying his baby daddy,why deny her first marriage which she was properly married?

  9. Uche you were married, introduction was done and drinks were share. You both kneel down and your father blessed you, maybe the bride price was not paid but you were very much screaming marriage at that time. You dumped him when you realised he was FAKE, no money, lies a lot. For one year, he deceived you with those trips abroad, lying he is a footballer agents, spending on you with money he borrowed. I am glad you walked away, same thing stephanie okereke did at least no kid for her, adarauko is also lucky she had no kid for that deceiver and now the two ladies are married to their dream men. As for you, you need to change your circle, you and uche elendu hmmmm.

    2. Uche Elendus own shocked me. U that crazy Abakpa fool? KAI she was way way better than allowing all this Enugu men marry her. Enugu marriage to actresses r based on lies. They lie to this girls and Enugu girls r so carried away by titles.

    4. Is it that u guys don't know about hee first marriage to an Ihiala guy that is based in Europe or what? Uche Ogbodo was married to d guy who is Uche Elendu's former husband's realtive and d marriage packed up before she met her baby daddy .She was properly married and her dowry paid(though she has returned it).
      I wonder why she keeps lying about her marriages..She has been twice married..

  11. Tonto this is how to be mature. She may harbour bitterness for her ex just as you do Churchill but she's not going round cursing him in interviews and swearing for him. She probably does that with her friends/family but not doing it publicly is the key. That is why she's able to move on and find another man bcos she's not wearing bitterness as her cloak.
    She's taking care of her child herself she has said how it isn't easy but she's doing it quietly and keeping her child,school and everything private. We don't even know the childs name. Everything is private.
    Uche welldone for forging on with your life. You will reap the fruits of your Labour.

    1. The way you people are drinking panadol for tonto problems, your lives must be sad. Is uche ex coming out to grant interviews? U che can never even accept that man to come out because she will die, he is a church rat!Poor to the teeth and she will never recognise him. How many interview did you read tonto gave? BECAUSE some of you talk for pleasure sake. She is fighting in public because the he goat fight her on blogs, sending people to write about her. You must be very blind and unintelligent to see what churchill is doing. Beside, why should they be the same? Are they related? Are you as rich, busy or beautiful than your friend or family members? Leave Tonto matter alone and mind your business, she is not your problem. Her situation is not the same with Tonto, there is no information on her ex talking about her in various video, so get your facts right!

    2. Oh pls shut up, fools that come together on Stella's blog and feels they r Solomon, dishing advice and feeling righteous unnecessarily. Until you lot have dealt with a man who is hell bent on destroying you at all cost,you all should leave Tonto to fight her battle anyhow she sees fit. Last I checked nobody is in dis world to pls anybody. Nonsense! !

    3. Anon 17.19 I can never be dealt a blow by men because I am not ashawo like the rest of you low lives.
      I married my boyfriend from university. We were both lucky to get banking jobs straight after school. We built together.
      I can't have you or Tontos experience cos I am not greedy and was never into runs. Men can never use me.

    4. Is uche's ex granting interviews up and down d way Tonto's ex is doing? It takes two to tango..Action begets reaction..If I have an ex like Tonto's ex,I would do worse than Tonto..Churchill is a useless man and I wonder why Tonto met and fell in love with him in d first place.Tueh!
