Popular Nollywood actress, Ini Edo has revealed why her colleague and close friend, Uche Jombo, initially disliked her.
She made this revelation during a recent interview with media personality Chude Jideonwo when she was asked about her friendship with Uche and how they became close friends.
She stated that contrary to popular belief, their relationship did not start on a good note, as Uche initially hated her when they first encountered each other on a movie set.
According to her, Uche disliked her because she had the impression that she was rude and disrespectful but with time, they got to know each other better and became good friends.
“Uche [Jombo] and I started off as not friends. She thought I was so rude. She thought I was so rude, that I was doing too much. She was like “What is she feeling like?” Like, I kept them on set for days. The first time we ever worked together, apparently she had been hearing my name, “Oh that new girl”, “oh she’s all over the place, all the producers are using her now so she’s like it girl”, you know, that is already making her feel like “what is she feeling like, mschewww”.
And then I now came late. I kept them like how many days on set. So eventually, according to her, I walked into the set and I did not say hello to her. So she was really upset with me. She hated me, apparently.
So eventually, I think, I don’t know how that wall got broken. I’m a sweetheart anyway, so you can hate me from afar but you can’t hate me when you know me, that’s just what it is.
So you know, I think eventually we got talking and I think we shared a drink. She didn’t waste time telling me “You, you no dey greet person abi? You no know say I no be your mate!” [laughs].
I think that’s how the ice was broken, and she’s been an amazing person to me. I think it’s mutual respect and real love for each other. There’s just really nothing but friendship more than just love and respect. Once you have that for each other, it’s not like you guys won’t have issues or you won’t step on each other’s toes, but once that mutual respect is there and that real love is there, we can communicate cuz I like to talk, so we can talk through everything.”
