Nse Ikpe-Etim has dispelled claims of being born with a silver spoon which is tied to her late father’s job at the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN).
The screen diva disclosed that her father’s job had them travelling to different parts of Nigeria and also led to loss of friends as she didn’t stick around for long.
She said, “It is rather presumptuous to assume that I was born with a silver spoon because my father worked at the Central Bank of Nigeria. Of course not; I was not born with a silver spoon. She told Sunday Scoop
“My father was posted to different parts of Nigeria and the advantages were that we got to see the country, learn new cultures, and pick up new languages though I have forgotten loads of phrases. One of the disadvantages was that I made and lost friends along the line, so either way, we just lived. At the end of the day, we turned out okay.” she added
Reminiscing on her childhood days in the north, Nse Ikpe-Etim condemned the killings being witnessed in the region lately.
“Thinking of my childhood days in the north, those were part of the best things to ever happen to me. It was lovely and peaceful. It wasn’t unheard of to go to the hills for picnics, the games reserve, and wildlife parks. It’s sad that we have slowly lost our humanity because of certain ideals.
“Whenever I hear of the violence in the north, it is not a pleasant thing to behold as people have lost loved ones, and cherished memories become unclear. It’s so heartbreaking when this happens. We can’t keep killing ourselves,” she said.
