Actress Empress Njamah has revealed her desire to get married and raise kids. She also talked about the growth of her foundation and plans to keep it running.
In an exclusive interview with Punch the actress and philanthropist talked about the Empress Njamah Foundation, her acting career and the reason she left Lagos to settle in Abuja.
She also talked about marriage saying: “If I had the opportunity to see God, I would ask him when I would get married and have kids of my own.”
She explained that she left for Abuja owing to business reasons and not as a result of controversies as has been speculated.
According to her, since relocating she has been closer to the Abuja women whom her clothing line targets.
“I relocated from Lagos to Abuja because of my business. My clothing line was suited for women of the north and that is why I relocated to Abuja. I make long dresses and my target is Abuja women.”
She also disclosed that if she hadn’t moved to Abuja, it would have been difficult to successfully take care of the kids in her foundation.
“If I relied on Nollywood, I would not be able to feed these children. My relocation has nothing to do with Nollywood. Even if I was still in Lagos, I would have still faced my business till it could stand on its own.”
Empress said she is impressed with the growth of the foundation which has been in existence for 10 years.
“I am so happy that most of the children have grown and are doing very well. Sometimes I find it difficult to carry on but God has always been faithful at the end. I built four blocks of classrooms for the children because I know that most of these children are very intelligent especially the blind ones.
“I have adopted all the children to my foundation. In Abuja I have about 1,400. Before I left Lagos, my foundation was catering for over 800 children,” she said
