Nollywood actress, Foluke Daramola, talked about her love for wristwatches, why she stopped wearing mini-skirts and other things in this new interview with Punch. Read her interview below;

On What she would never wear, she said;
    You will never see me wear a short skirt or a micro-mini skirt; even though my husband really loves my legs. Because of my rape experience, I have phobia for mini skirts. I was wearing a mini-skirt then.

How many wristwatches do you have?
    Right now because I buy and give out, I think I have about 40 wristwatches while I have lost count of my perfume but it cannot be less than 60.

Why were you fond of exposing your cleavage in the early stage of your career?
    I was a teenager when I started acting. It started even before I got into the university. I had youthful exuberance and I was ready to explore life. At the end of the day, I guess I am more mature now and I believe that beauty is not in what you expose but in how you look. Beauty is about carrying oneself with poise.

At what point did you decide to change your style of dressing?
    I wouldn’t say it happened at a particular time. It was when I was growing older, I just told myself that I was getting older and there was no need for me to expose my body. Also, when I started having kids, especially my daughter since I am her biggest role model; I stopped because. I have to carry myself in a way that I would want her to present herself in future.

As a busty lady, was there a time in your life you wished you did not have big bosom ?
    Of course, when I was much younger in secondary school, I used to wear both singlet and bra just to compress my bosom  but later when people started admiring me, I grew to appreciate my bust and I began to see it as an asset rather than a burden. But when I was in secondary school, I used to be so conscious of it and I tried all I could to hide it. When I finished secondary school, I became aware of myself and I began to wear skimpy clothes till I got into the university and people told me that if I continued to wear skimpy clothes, lecturers would ask me out and I would make myself vulnerable, so I started wearing big shirts. Over time I grew to appreciate myself and love myself the way I am.

On maintaining her complexion, She said:
    There was a time bloggers were ‘yabbing’ me that I bleached my skin. When I went into my first marriage, I had a lot of challenges and because of that, I was not able to take care of my skin. I have never been a dark-complexioned person, neither have I been extremely fair. One thing about me is that I don’t like using harsh substance on my skin. Since I was about 10 years old, I would always have my bath in the morning and in the evening, I don’t miss it. I also use natural substances on my body like honey which I use to steam my face, ‘ori’ (shea butter) for my hair and whatever cream I use; baby oil has to be included. I like to look as natural as possible, I don’t like looking too artificial and that is why you can never find a tattoo on me. Whenever I use a cream and see that it is making my skin too fair, I stop using it and allow my skin to rest. I don’t like make-up so I allow my skin to breathe. When I was younger, I hardly used harsh substance on my skin. I have always been a tomboy.

Some women sef, after marriage dem go package themselves, repent & start dressing decently for dem daughters to follow- thats good o,  but unfortunately most times dem daughters will still do the same  thing or even worse than they ever did. Life has a way of making u pay for what you owe.
