Why I can’t sell my body for money —Chinenye Uyana
Judging by her looks and determination to take over the screens, one might be tempted to think that pretty light-skinned actress, Chinenye Uyana, would gladly sneak into the ‘other room’ of any movie producer who intends to oblige her with a movie role.
But contrary to Potpourri’s suspicions, the screen diva seems to know her onions as a lady with a strict religious upbringing.
According to Chinenye, nothing in the world would make her trade her body for a movie role. In an exclusive chat with Potpourri, she was quick to condemn the act of sleeping around to secure roles.
“It doesn’t really work that way for me, I don’t believe in the saying that “You have to use what you have to get what you want”, let your job tell the story.
I don’t believe I have to sell my body to make money, it’s not possible, instead I’ll sell money to take care of my body”, she quipped.
She went further to claim that even if she is offered a huge amount of money to go nude on set, she would never accept, because it would tarnish her integrity and contradict her principles as a virtuous woman.
“I won’t do it; I will never do it! That’s something I can’t do, no matter how professional I want to be. For God’s sake, I’m an African woman, I can’t go naked on live TV, it’s not possible, I’m sorry, I can’t do that.
Others can do it but that’s how they want to live their lives, I can’t; after the money what next, is it porn we are shooting”, she retorted.
