Uti Nwachukwu is a household name. He is an actor, a model, Tv presenter and much more. Uti came to limelight after winning the 2010 edition of Big Brother Africa-All Stars. He spoke to Bellanaija about some issues including his alleged sexual relationship with Alex Ekubo, Gbenro Ajibade and Senator Florence Ita-Giwa who once dated Chidi Mokeme.
‘… Another movie to look out for is Weekend Gateway. I got paired with Genevieve Nnaji in that movie and it’s something I’ve always wanted”. Uti said when asked about his recent movie jobs to look out for.
Speaking about his alleged romantic relationship with his friends Alex Ekubo, Gbenro Ajibade and Senator Florence Ita-Giwa, he said: ”It went from shock, to worry, to laughter and now it’s extreme laughter. Back in the days, when two guys are always seen together, people would say this one has passed friendship, now he’s your brother. But now, people are saying we are in a relationship and i’m like what is happening in Nigeria? It’s very hilarious. I’m not trying to disrespect anybody’s sexual preference but for Alex and I or Gbenro and I, it doesnt make sense. Florence Ita-Giwa is just a lovely woman who has helped my career in so many ways”. ‘I usually don’t read comments about me on blogs. I think most people that believe and carry these rumours are people that practice these things. I’m happy that we can sit down and laugh about it or else they would have ruined a good relationship. The more they talk more about us, the more relevant we are. In fact they should talk more, it’s really helping our career in a positive way’. Uti said.
