Nollywood actress Tamilore Ojo popularly known as Sisi Eko says she did not have a romantic relationship with the late former Oyo State governor Abiola Ajimobi.
The actress said it was the handiwork of rumour mongers that were bent on tarnishing her image.
Sisi Eko spoke recently during an appearance on a weekly radio show Parrot Xtra Hour on Radio anchored by Olayinka Agboola and broadcast live on the Broadcasting Corporation of Oyo State’s Oluyole 98.5 FM Ibadan.
She said she only met Ajimobi and his wife Florence when she was given an award by the state government for her achievements in the entertainment industry.
Speaking further, the actress said anyone found guilty of committing rape should have their eyes plucked out.
In addition, she revealed that her passion for the entertainment industry has been her driving force despite the numerous challenges facing the industry. She said she got her big break in the movie industry in 2018 when she produced the movie ‘Sisi Eko’ and she has since been so called by her fans all over the world.
When quizzed about her embarrassing moment in the industry, she said: “I remember I shot a movie titled Omo Ekun, it was the story of a notorious armed robber, two weeks after the movie was released, I went to the market and a woman saw me and started shouting, ‘thieves have entered the market’ and I also ran and she asked me why I was running, that aren’t you the thief?
“That was when I realised that she was referring to the movie production where I played the role of a thief. I felt so embarrassed and I had to educate her that I was not a thief that it was a movie, make believe that we did.”
The actress appealed to the Seyi Makinde administration in Oyo to build a film village in the state, saying it would make it easier for movie production.
