Actress Georgina Ibeh claims that she shed pounds to feel more confident about herself. She stated, “One should not work on one’s body to please any man,” in an interview with Sunday Scoop. It ought to be what one desires for themselves. It is one that matters at the end of the day. In order to increase my confidence, I worked on myself.
“Losing weight was a personal decision I took because of health reasons. It was not because I wanted to be getting movie roles. When I was bigger (in size), I had movie roles. But because I’m now slimmer, I can fit into more roles. It was for my own gain.”
Ibeh also maintained that she does not get movies roles based on the clique she belongs to. She said, “There are cliques in every industry. I cannot speak for everyone but for myself. People (filmmakers) call me because I am a good actor, and because I am understanding and tolerant. Yes, there are cliques in the industry, but I have never got roles based on that. I have got roles based on my talent and passion for my craft.”

Speaking on the issue of filmmakers being harassed by louts at movie locations, she said, “I have experienced it a lot of times. Some people feel entitled. When a filmmaker goes to shoot a movie, those people (louts) would want to collect money from them. Those louts try to ‘suck out’ money from producers just to make the process of movie production difficult.
“I don’t know if there is a solution to it though because we (filmmakers) keep giving them money. They (louts) would say we should settle the youths, which we do.”
Additionally, the actress revealed that she is engaged in a production called Perfect Break-up. She claims that it is directed by Lancelot Imasuen, and that Nosa Rex and she both play the main characters.
