Nollywood actress, Chizzy Alichi, who became a superstar star last month when she unveiled the mansion she built for her parents in Enugu has disclosed that she does not kiss anyone on set because of mouth odour. The Enugu State University of Technology (ESUT) Agricultural Engineering graduate told The Entertainer:
“I can’t deal with mouth odour. I take good care of myself especially my teeth so I don’t kiss anyhow in movies, I can’t even date a guy with dirty teeth in real life no matter how rich he is.”
“So as an actor, if your teeth are dirty or have bad odour then it’s a no for me. The person can only get a peck because I have been paid to do so and act as a professional”.
You’ll recall that the actress’ parents were living in a dilapidated house with leaking roofs,it was such a terrible experience that her Dad considered selling a part of their compound to seal the roofs and just then the Idea of building a New house for them crossed her mind, inspire of all the insults from her fellow stars she still went on to do what was right.
“People have always refer to me as “mgbeke” (local girl) that I dont know fashion or carry designer bags/shoes/clothes. That I don’t wear expensive hair. Well my darlings I do know and want to wear those things but I have been saving for this building right here. I can’t remember d last time my family travelled for Xmas because their is no house to stay.
My mother falls sick whenever she goes for August meeting and comes back. My father wanted to sell half of our compound to fix d leaking roof, buy ceiling and also patch the broken wall but I told him No. ( PAPA I WILL BUILD HOUSE FOR YOU) after saving for sometime.
I wanted to use the money to buy myself another car (A bigger car) but I said to myself, what’s d need for d car when we don’t have roof over our head in d village moreover the car I have is still in good condition and serves me well, I can always buy another one later. Today am grateful to Almighty God that it came to pass.
My parents are d happiest ppl on earth. 4 masters bedroom, extra 2 toilets, kitchen, dinning and palour. God is the Greatest.”
