Cosy Orjiakor "I will cover my boobs when I’m old"
Like her or hate her, three things are bound to endear you to Cossy Orjiakor. They are; her friendliness, intelligence and boldness to discuss issues affecting her personality as well as her acting career.
These attributes played out last week when Showtime Celebrity ran into her, and later engaged her in an interview. Cossy bares it all, dropping the bombshell that men are at her beck and call.
She also dropped the hint that she will be getting married next year and many more…
I Learnt that when she was asked if she has insured your boobs for N256 million? "It’s not true" was her reply. Sometimes, some of these bloggers just cook up stuffs that are not true. But it sounds so interesting, that’s why I didn’t want to confirm whether it’s true or not, Let the story just be.
Why don’t you want to talk about it? "It’s because the story is a fiction" she said. Somebody just cooked it up. I don’t know anything about it.
I didn’t tell anybody I’m insuring my boobs. It’s something that somebody just cooked up somewhere.
The story didn’t generate from me neither did it generate from my Twitter handle or Instagram.
I might do it, or not. But I don’t want to talk about my boobs here.
Your face have been missing on the silver screen, have you dumped acting for music? I’d act when I am invited, and when the pay is considerable. I wouldn’t be put under pressure.
At least, I have done two movies this year. I can’t go to people’s offices to beg for roles. When I was hungry, I used to go to producers to beg for roles. But now, I am no longer hungry. Although, I am planning to come out with a TV reality show.
The show will hit the screen before the end of February, next year. I have somebody who is helping me to develop the concept. It is about the living conditions of most Nigerians. I don’t want to talk much about it until it hits the screen.
Don’t you think, you are being misunderstood by your critics? That’s not my business what people think about me. But it’s my business what I think about myself. I feel good, I’m happy, I am myself and I’m not a fake person. Yet I have a lot of fans who love me.
People tend to pretend a lot. When you are simple and down-to- earth, they will not want to identify with you. I don’t fake myself. Life is all about having fun, and what is the best time for me to catch my fun than now that I’m still young, and not when I’m old and gone.
Are you still doing your music? Yes, I’m still doing my music. Once in a while, I go for private shows where I am well paid. But I have not graced a big stage. I’m doing music for the love of it.
When you love something, it does not matter what it take you to do it. I’m not in a hurry, one step at a time.
When I am in a mood to do music, I do it. I am not doing music to make millions of naira or to compete with anybody. I am doing music because of the passion I have for it.
Are you working on any album at the moment? I have some songs already and my video has been released online. I featured Durella in my single.
Do you feel hurt each time, people address you as queen of boobs? That word was first used by BBC focus on Africa when they described me as Queen of Boobs.
I am okay with whatever you choose to call me.
How often do you get angry? I stock my house with food stuff. So, each time I’m angry, I keep on eating and eating until I get satisfied.
Is Cossy in love? Now or before? Both now and before? At the moment, I have a lot of people that love me. I’d fall in love. But when I dating someone, I hate to make it a public affair.
I can’t even take a picture with my man in public. But I can take pictures with my fans. Anybody you see me pose for a shot is my fan. I wouldn’t even agree to share the same table with my man at a function. This, for me, is a way of avoiding people raising eyebrows.
Are you saying that you are not in love at the moment? I don’t know! Anyway, I will be getting married come next year.
You mean, you are getting married for real? A woman get married when she is ready to get married. I will get married next year or I will make a baby next year.
Who is the lucky man? I don’t know.
What stands out among other celebrities? I don’t know, everybody is made in the image of God.
We hope to see cosy in matrimony.
