While speaking in an exclusive chat with Vanguard's Potpourri, fast-rising Nollywood actress and video vixen, Asakomhe Mary, a.k.a Maryjane Benson revealed that as an actress and as video vixen, she has encountered the good, the bad and the ugly and she has learnt so many things, including shelving inhibitions most girls grapple with.
The actress who has been in the industry since 2015, and disclosed that she’s a regular girl next door but one with big dreams, also said that if she sees a guy she likes, she will approach him, unlike most women who lack the courage to do so.
When asked if she could make the first move to date a guy, she said; “Yes, I can go out of my way to approach a guy I really like.”
“I don’t see anything wrong in that, if the guy doesn’t make the move, I can make it. Sometimes men and women miss each other because of fear of who’s to make the first move. It may be that the guy likes me but shy to make the move.
"But if I make the move and the guy doesn’t respond in kind or refuses, I will leave him alone. I can’t force a guy to go out with me. I’m very emotional and I have cried for love before,” she added.
The Edo State-born, Lagos bred entertainer, who has appeared in one of LKT videos featuring Davido, countered the notion that video vixens are loose and cheap.
“It is not true that video vixens are loose and tend to lure musicians to bed. Though, I can only speak for myself but many video vixens I know are not loose. Besides, they do not even have the time to go about luring artistes to bed because the job is so stressful,” she quips.
While comparing the financial reward that comes with acting and music video modelling, Maryjane was emphatic in her assertion.
“For now, music video modelling pays me more than acting. But if you ask me which I will drop for the other, I will say modelling because acting is more of a career than modelling,” she said.
