Fast rising Nollywood actress, Oma Iyasara in a recent interview talks about pornography movies in Nollywood, acting and her kind of man.

>On porn.ography creeping into
Nollywood and if its true porn.ography makes the movies more real
I don’t think porno.graphy makes a movie real, the way the world is now, se.x sells, so porn.ography is just a decoy to attract people to movies. But it doesn’t work for me because it’s not in our tradition and culture
On acting if the money is right
Yes, I may consider going to interpret a role but definitely not to the extent of going fully Besides, that is why we have body doubles.
>On her selling points and how it has helped her
I will say my selling point is my jovial attitude, and my eyes. Yes, I will say they have helped in a lot of ways and will still help in the future. My jovial nature has opened doors for me in ways I can’t explain; be it in people recommending me or just wanting to help me, because they just want to see me grow.
>On her kind of man
A good conversationalist with a good sense of humour is my kind of man, any day. If a man makes me laugh a lot, he has a chance to my heart. Then his manners and how he treats other people count. Though looks are not very important, it is an added advantage.
Omo is a graduate of Mass Communication from the Imo State University. In 2011 she enrolled in the prestigious Royal Arts Academy owned by Emem Isong where she excelled as one of the favourite students in her time, with a certificate of excellence.
