Nollywood actress Daniella Okeke, who posted some days ago that she is ready to address all the rumours trailing her, has finally spoken out. The actress in an interview with SDK talked about the rumours trailing her including the one of her alleged affair with the senior pastor and General Overseer of Omega Fire Ministries International, Apostle Johnson Suleman.
When she was asked about the alleged affair she said:
“The man of God in question is a father to me but we live in a world where people judge you with their own standard..They said he bought me a Benz Jeep,I don’t own any and i have never owned any.. I read he bought me the car and a house in his name..That’s an insult!!
“Am I a kid or teenager that a man buys me a ride and a house in his name? Its very Laughable cos All my properties are in my name..
My lawyer contacted the licensing office where they claimed they got the info from and those ones said nobody contacted them..
“Asides being a showbiz person,I have a relationship with God.
“I kept quiet because my lawyer found out it was more than just a stupid rumour or Scandal, it became a political and religious fight against my father..I am answering now Stella because you are asking it directly which no one has done and I also want to address this senseless rumours.
Countless male actors have been helped by this same man and even though they all kept quiet when the saga was on does that mean anything is going on with them ? Or its becos I am woman and a good target for their plan and lies?
I also heard talks about a 3some and all, I had never met the ‘Stephenie Otobo’ girl in question in my life, I never knew who she was and the 1st time I saw her and heard her name was on the social media when she started her drama. it never happened and I reject such lifestyle.. Anybody that says contrary is free to assume..”
Daniella said despite the allegations, it wont stop her cordial relationship with the man of God, she said:
“There is no ‘relationship’ if what i think you mean is what you actually mean..will you stop talking to your father because people are insinuating and assuming?..it’s senseless,he is still my father and will always be no matter the insinuations or assumption..”
The actress also cleared the air about the accusations of her being pregnant before and having travelling to the US to have a baby. She said:
“I was never pregnant or had a baby in America, I really don’t know where people create this stories from? I Have never had a child in my life, I went to America to get a surgery, I had been battling with fibroid for some years now, Nobody knows about it,only my close friends and family, this is the first time I am talking about it openly Stella , Fibroid is no joke, the pain is excruciating and I had to go get a surgical help, I was in America for a couple of months, and the next thing I started hearing, was i went to have a baby, I laughed so hard at first I thought it was a joke, until I start hearing different stories created to go with it, even my colleagues in the industry were talking about it , I was particularly disappointed in one of the senior directors in the industry, because he was heard gossipping about it in Asaba,i felt so bad because I respected him a lot, anyway Stella there is nothing I have not heard about myself but in all I am THANKFUL because you have to be Someone Important for people to talk about.
On why she is just addressing the rumours, she said:
“I Am talking now because you are the first to ask me with the intention of knowing without bias..people believe what they want..but when someone genuinely wants to know the truth about an issue,it’s only respectful that the gesture is reciprocated.. I am very quiet and low key kind of person by nature, And a lot of times when this stories come up people always just tell me ignore it, it will pass, its just a rumours, you know they say talking about it drag more attention to it, So I always kept mute, although I wished I had addressed something things earlier it probably might have helped clear out so senseless stories tagged to my name but in all I have no Regrets in Life, I just learn from mistakes..”
