How I deal with pressure to marry – Ebube Nwagbo

Nollywood star, Ebube Nwagbo, has opened up on how she deals with pressures from people for her to settle down.

The Anambra State-born movie producer and businesswoman said that though she longs to get married and raise her own family soon, she won’t rush into it just for the sake of pleasing people.

The 35-year-old beauty, who is set to launch her new clothing line – Poshed Up – disclosed that venturing into business and reading several insightful books had not only helped her become a better woman but also a focused professional.

Speaking earlier in the week, Nwagbo said that her upbringing and fear of God has helped her maintain a controversy-free life.

She said, “The pressure of marriage comes but I am happy for the type of parents and family members I have. They all understand that marriage is not a decision I have to make in a hurry. I try to let everybody know that deciding who to marry has to be done right and at the appropriate time as well. I have learnt to deal with this pressure by not allowing whatever people say to bother me. As a person, I try to be the best that I can. I come from a very strict Christian background.

“My parents always tell me never to forget where I am coming from and I never forget that. The training they gave me has helped in shaping the woman I am today. Being a star comes with a lot of pains. There are people in the society who want to control your life and make you live in a certain way. But the truth is that you can’t please everyone. Sometimes you have to be yourself and this could be misunderstood. It’s a price we have to pay for being in the limelight.”

Speaking on her new clothing line, the screen diva revealed that the decision to go into that line of business was inspired by requests from fans and loved ones, who always wanted to replicate whatever she puts.

She said, “The idea of Pushed Up came following weeks of soul-searching and brainstorming. I like to try out new things and look good as a person. What I have done is just recreate my looks and putting it out there for people to appreciate. I regard myself as a creative designer.

“As a businesswoman, I have learnt to read widely. I have had to learn from those who have been successful in business and see how I can replicate that in my venture. My best ideas come at bedtime. In that relaxed state, I get to search my inner self and come up with ideas truly amazing. The fashion industry in Nigeria is huge, I am trying to create something good that others can benefit from as well.”
