If you’re one of the those that criticized Omoni Oboli’s outfit to the Aso villa (HERE) then she’s got a response for you.
“I styled myself and I thought the outfit was appropriate because there were no vital parts showing. Sometimes the angles with which pictures are taken can portray certain things you do not have intention of portraying. We have pictures from the event and you won’t see what people are seeing.
The truth is that a lot of people are very bitter and when people are bitter they try to look for a lot of negative things in every positive thing. It is unfortunate that we are in the limelight because if someone else wears that outfit no one will say anything.
I don’t even read blogs and see the comments. My true fans know who I am and my intention when I am doing things.”
On how she got the president to watch the movie, she said “The Film Producers Marketers Association of Nigeria actually wrote to the presidency.“To our greatest surprise, they said they would do it.
The event had the president, Vice-President, PDP chairman, some senators and ministers and two governors in attendance. It was huge and it is a big achievement for Nollywood. I sat on the high table with all these men and never expected that I would get to this point.
The President said Nollywood had put Nigeria on the world map and contributed to our economy in so many ways and so could not be ignored.”
