Okechukwu Joseph has dished on his brief relationship with Genevieve Nnaji, throwing some light on the reason for their split.
The actor blamed his virginity at the time for the short span of his relationship with the Nollywood actress as well, as the difficulty, he experienced in blending in with his colleagues in the movie scene.
Okechukwu made the disclosure during a recent interview with The Sun.
“I had no difficulty mingling. What I had issues with was entangling- copulating.
“And like I said earlier, I wasn’t ready because I was a virgin and I didn’t want to tell anybody. I was always making excuses about why I couldn’t ‘get down.’ In fact, this is one of the reasons my very short relationship with Genevieve was such a disaster.
“This is the first time I am admitting this publicly. Genny and I met and became friends on the set of Mark of the Beast. Of course in her very early days. It was as though we were in some type of experiment. But I learned a lot about her within that short period.”
The actor went on to gush about the gorgeous and talented actress, explaining how knowing her better helped him understand her the very few people do.
“Two unforgettable moments- the day she introduced her little brother to me and the day she told me literally everything about herself. She trusted me that much. My mind was racing like crazy and I kept wondering how so little people knew about this young Amazon who was out to play the Esther for her family and did she?
“She felt like family to me. Unfortunately, we couldn’t go further because of my funny little ‘virgin’ secret. Not that she solicited or asked for anything but of course, my body language was downright repulsive to that effect and it didn’t take anything for any woman with brains to figure it out.
“She was so full of pragmatic energy and so on-the-go-like woman on a mission. Never ready to play around with stuff she couldn’t put up with. I hope she’s still that way. She has got an incredible story to her glory.”…. n it’s nt a story for d gods, believe me.”
Although his relationship with Genevieve fell through, Okechukwu’s words show no hint of regret except the fact that they have lost whatever friendship they had.
