"If My Husband Cheats, I Will Castrate Him' - Uche Jombo Says in New Interview
In this interview with Sam Olatunji, Uche
Jombo speaks on cheating and new movie
What is it with the celebrity kids on
your new movie, â€˜Unconditionalâ€™?
We didnâ€™t set out to use celebrity kids. I
told everyone including you the age range I
want and people suggested the kids.
Aghahowaâ€™s daughter has wanted to act
since age 5, we auditioned Chigozie, and
she did well and got a coach to coach
them. 2faceâ€™s daughter is just a drama
queen. And this movie, Unconditional is
not all about them, Dakore, Ruth Kadiri and
I acted in it. Itâ€™s the kind of move that will
touch the heart.
If your husband were to be a serial
philanderer like Desmondâ€™s character
in the movie, Lies Men Tell, what will
I will castrate him, he knows and believes
that. To me, there is no excuse to cheat, its
either you are with someone or not, and if
you are tired of the person, please accord
the person decency of respect by saying
itâ€™s over. Donâ€™t go making someone look
stupid. The problem with me is there is no
Do you believe what you are saying
or are you saying it for the purpose of
I am saying,Uche Jombo-Rodrigues
doesnâ€™t have in-between. That is the reason
it takes me long time to make a decision or
take a stand on something, but when I do,
that is it. There is no excuse not to honour
an agreement you have made, this doesnâ€™t
have anything to do with this interview. It
is the principle that guides me. It is not just
about marriage, itâ€™s how I conduct my
relationships, its either it is this or that, if
that is mymind-set in a relationship, you
should know that for marriage itâ€™ll be 150%.
There is no room for cheating.
So you believe your husband will or
should not cheat on you?
I donâ€™t have control over what someone
will do, Iâ€™m not God. Iâ€™m talking about me,
how I conduct things. Itâ€™s not an option
that it will happen, I will not tolerate
Are you saying you will not forgive
the man who cheats on you and is
manly enough to say Iâ€™m sorry?
If you are in that situation Sam, oh God!
You are going to slave for me for life. And
do you know any man that will want to
slave for a woman for life, answer?
Is it true you are older than your
husband and the man you dated
I have never dated or married someone I
was older than in my life. If you have the
illusion of someoneâ€™s age, that is your
business, and I am even too mature for
my age. That is the problem, because men
of my age are â€˜small boysâ€™ around me, I
canâ€™t date them. I am someone who has to
become a mother to some of my siblings
at the age of 14. Because you are an under-
achiever does not mean I should play
down on my achievement. If age is the
yard stick for you to succeed, you should
not judge people with it, I donâ€™t have an
apology. If Iâ€™m learning from people who
are older than me that is because I donâ€™t
hang out with my age mates; I donâ€™t think
there is anything else you want to teach
me, and if you want to judge me by the
people I hang out with or by when I
started my hustle, where the hell were you
at that time? What really matters to me is
that people who know me during my not-
too-proud days are so proud that, this is
me now. I have come far, itâ€™s something
Iâ€™m grateful for, and I couldnâ€™t have even
written it better if it were a story.
