In an interview with Saturday Beats, she however expressed dismay that strippers are usually judged by people and seen as lesser humans.
She said, “I think I am the most judged stripper. When I was a stripper, (I don’t strip anymore), people often came to me for help and at the same time, they would judge me. They did not see us as human beings. Stripping is actually a profession but in my father’s land (Nigeria), it is not seen as one. It was really hard because people were so judgmental.
“Because of that, I cannot talk in public. And, that is why I am uptight; I don’t like expressing myself. Whenever I talk, people are quick to throw ‘shades’ at me, saying what do I know since I’m just a stripper. They feel we (strippers) can do anything for money.”
Chichi, who is considering a career in Nollywood, also stated that she can never act nude. She said, “No, I won’t act nude. But, for those who choose to do it, I am not a judgmental person. That is probably what they feel comfortable doing. They should do what they feel is good for them.”
She also maintained that a woman can be as successful as a man. She said, “I don’t believe that. A woman can be successful the same way a man can. There are so many wealthy men out there; should we also say those men got their money from women?”
