Mention the name Lupita Amondi Nyong’O ,anywhere in the world today and you are bound to get knowing looks and listening ears, the ebony skin winner of the Oscar’s 2013, Best Supporting Actress,
is being talked about today because, she set a clear cut target for herself in her chosen career, she set a goal and she achieved it winning the prestigious award. Before she became a celebrity that she is today,
Lupita was focused, dedicated and gave her best to stand tall amongst others. The Mexican/Kenyan put no material things before her career aspirations; today she is a style icon and has risen to Fame with an
Oscar aware prize.
Coming to Nigeria, it is a different kettle of fish as Lizzy Gold Onuwaje, former Miss Delta State, 2006, whose face is barely recognized in Nollywood has shown where her interest lies. In an interview with
Vanguard, the upcoming actress, who is not anyway moved or encouraged by the intimidating professional resume of Lupita, wants wealth, and to achieve this the responsibility is saddled on men.
“My former affair didn’t crash because I went into acting. The basic truth is, he doesn’t have money, so I decided to end the relationship. I dumped him in 2013 because he didn’t have much in terms of money
and he didn’t have any push as my kind of man…I like men that are caring. You have to be rich, caring, romantic and nice. Some men are rich but stingy. Be rich and be willing to spend the money. If I tell you
I need anything, let me get the alert. I like alerts (Laughs). Alerts turn me on.
Of course, if you don’t have money, don’t even bother to call my line; don’t even bother to admire my pictures (Laughs). I love money so much. I can’t marry a poor man. Never! I need a rich man; I don’t
want a man that is a bit okay. Money means a lot to me, in fact, money turns me on. I just need to imagine so much money in my account and I’m turned on. When I get a credit alert on my account, Oh my
God, I get turned on immediately.
If you are not rich; I can never be attracted to you. I like rich, clean, fresh guys. When I say rich, I don’t mean ‘Yahoo’ kind of guys, because they are not hard-working. I want a guy who is consistent with
his work and rich. Right now, I’m okay where I am, so I don’t think I’ll leave him for any other person. “
