I will never do porn – Ini Edo

Ini Edo

Nollywood screen goddess, Ini Edo has vowed that she will never do porn in her acting career.

The award winning actress whose acting prowess spans over a decade said although she does not limit herself when working she will never accept such a role.

“I never did soft porn even before I got married so it’s not something I will do now. I try to cut down on acts that may be offensive. Acting, to make it work, has to be as real as possible. So I would rather not do soft porn than to do it and not interpret it well,” Ini told Mercy Michael, a Nigerian journalist, in an interview.

Currently basking in the excitement marriage life with his sweetheart, Philip Ehiagwina, has got to offer; Ini Edo hinted that her marital status is not influencing her acting career in anyway.

The issue of pornography or soft porn in African movies has been on the table for a while now and it a never ending debate that has been frowned upon by religious persons and a section of the general public who say it is not African.

It was reported last year that, Nollywood actress Omoni Oboli, stunned many when she rejected an offer of a whopping US$500,000 for a lead role in a high budget movie that will cost a Hollywood producer US$40 million.

The actress rejected the offer to play a role in a movie that would have launched her into international stardom. According to the story, there were three completely nude scenes in the script where Omoni would be expected to play a character having sex with three different men.

In the interview, Ini said while her decision not to act nude is based on her conscience, she won’t admit that she is religious but “I put God first in everything that I do. He’s the only one I always run to at the end of the day!”

The greatest threat to showbiz personalities and their careers is scandals. To her the worst scandal in her career so far was “When a certain journalist wrote a drug story about me, I don’t want to revisit the story because it’s very ridiculous.”

These scandals she said does not affect her marriage because her husband perfectly understands her: “He understands my profession and he knows that I have to do what I have to do. But naturally you need to give a good explanation for whatever negative.”

For about a decade, Ini Edo boasts of appearing in about 200 movies including Rain DropsInalePleasure and CrimeBattle for Pride,Darkest Day, and Royal War. Interestingly playing the role of a sniper in a movie remains a dream yet to be fulfilled.

    african porn cant be real. so those are trappings. it appears but amazing how just billions are spending time watching them. i wouldnt bash if a person does it… its not abt money but passion for acting. afterall the worst porn is what we watch everyday our women dressing like hookers in the offices. 3inch skirts. porn is also an effective tool in promoting safe sex practices discoveries have said time and again howeva porn remains restricted to over 18 watchers
