I’m No Longer Bothered About What People Say About My Boobs..Nollywood Actress

 Fast-rising actress, Peju Johnson, believes she has what it takes to take her career to the next level. While people believe that her beauty is getting her the roles, the believes otherwise, saying beauty alone does not guarantee success for an actress. In this interview with Nigerian Tribune, she speaks about life as an actress and what it means to be a celebrity.

You are fast becoming a popular name in the movie industry despite the fact that you are still relatively new in the game. How have you been coping with this new lease of life?

I have been coping. I don’t think I am even seeing myself in that light. I have been working hard, paying attention to my craft and making sure that the job is done well. I am also happy that some people are paying attention to what I do and are showing me so much love. This, for me, is a big moment in my acting life and I hope I can sustain it.

Looking at how your career has turned out, would you have believed that you could get to this level this quick?

No one can say what the future holds for him or her. But we can work and keep our hopes high even as we trust God to make our plans perfect. It will surprise to you know that I never thought I would be here in a short while. It has been the grace of God that got me here and I am counting on that grace to move from this level to the next level. I don’t take the grace of God for granted because I am not the only one that came into the industry the time I came in. So for me to have been noticed, I believe God is taking me to a bigger place.


How have you been living up to the expectations of the industry?

The job is extremely stressful but people think our job is easy because they always see the end result. For me, apart from passion that has kept me on my feet, one thing that I don’t joke without is my quest to keep getting better. You are only as good as your last movie, so one must keep striving to get better. It may not be easy but it always pays off. At this point, there is no looking back for me. The dream is to keep going.


Was acting what you have always loved to do or you found yourself here by chance?

I have always had passion for acting. I have never thought of doing something else but acting. Acting comes naturally for me and I keep giving it my best each time I have the opportunity to do what I love doing.


What exactly do you like about being an actress?

I really love the acting part of the job and also the production. This is what I have always wanted to do and I am glad I am currently living my dreams. I think watching myself on the TV, especially when people call to tell me they are seeing my movies, is the most thrilling aspect of the job for me.


You have featured in a number of movies that people commended you for, but it seems you are still very much underrated. Does this not put you under any pressure?

Nothing puts me under pressure. I am always on top of pressure. I think it is normal for people to look down or rate you low. It doesn’t mean I am not good, It may have to do with the fact that they have not seen the best of me yet and they want to see it. So, this fuels my passion to keep challenging myself as I grow on the job. I am good where I am right now and I am looking forward to a wonderful experience as the New Year approaches.


Having a pretty face is usually a plus for new actresses. Will it be safe to say that producers like to cast you in movies because you are beautiful and endowed?

I don’t think that’s right but I can’t speak for the producers. One thing we must learn is that pretty faces alone are not enough to take you far in this industry. If beauty is the only thing you have got to offer, then you should be ready to be dumped because when that beauty fades, you will need something else to keep you going. I guess the producers just want to work with new faces and I am one of the new faces that people like to see on their screens. As far as I am concerned, my brand is a forever thing and It’s here to stay by the grace of God.

 I’m no longer bothered about what people say about my boobs too,which they always talk about .
