cossy respond to afro candy

June 3, 2013


Popular entertainer, Cossy Orjiakor,speak out on
several issues in this interview with Ademola
Olonilua. She compared herself with pastors and praised afrocandy,see the full interview here;
Do you regard yourself as a musician or an
I’m an all round entertainer. I’m an artiste,
actress and also an activist.
You recently released an album. What is the
acceptance level?
Yes, I released an album so as to push me to take
music seriously. Normally, I can do a song and
then hibernate for a long time. With the album,
Nutty Queen, a 15-track album out, I have two
years to promote before I will do another. So far,
I’m taking s*xual seduction to the streets. I have
done online promotion and my fans and even
critics love it. I’m yet to take it round radio
stations. Also, when the video is ready, I’ll take it
to television stations. I’m kind of busy with other
things so I really need someone very capable to
manage me as an artiste. When I get that person,
my music will get to the grass root because it has
good messages.
You once said you are born again, are you still?
I never said that. I’m a sinner and have come
short of the glory of God. He that is without sin
should cast the first stone. My problem is that I’m
too real in the midst of lots of fake people. It is by
the special grace of God that people, even
pastors, will make heaven. What’s the difference
between I that love to show off my cleavage and
the pastors that love to show off their flashy cars?
The in thing now is private jets. I think I’m better
off because with the economic situation, lots of
stress and all, some can channel their frustrations
and some people can get relieved at the sight
that makes them forget the terrible situation.
But some of these church owners don’t know how
to give back to the society, you don’t need to be a
member before you can benefit. Churches can
just buy basic foodstuffs and give to the needy.
There are a lot of ills in this society. I don’t even
want to mention the corporate thieves that get
patted on the back for embezzling money meant
for the old and retired citizens. Next time you see
such people, ask them if they are born again
because I’m a sinner. I pray God will give me my
heart desires because my flesh is so weak.
Sounds like you are unhappy with the society
I love Nigeria. I’m a proud and true Nigerian. It’s
just that I don’t like it when I’m asked that
question. It’s so obvious that I’m not born again
but with the special grace of God, I will be
There are rumours of you having HIV. Is it true?
I will love to know where the rumour started, so I
can sue. Also, the bloggers will write whatever
they think will drive people to their sites without
verifying if it’s true or not. Like a website just
cooked up a story and said that I have HIV twice
and I’m afraid to have it the third time. To an
educated person, such stories are more like a joke
but to those that don’t know better, they may
believe it. I don’t have HIV, I don’t have AIDS.
That does not mean it’s a death penalty for those
that have it.
But I read it somewhere that a friend close to you
confirmed the story…
Well, I can come up now and say that Bill Gates is
my grandfather; talk is cheap. I will like whoever
that said that I have AIDS to come out publicly
and say it. I don’t bite. I just need who I can show
proofs to, not the public. So if you think and
believe I have AIDS, just quote yourself and not
base it on rumours. My friends, the few that know
me well and come to my place, are not cowards.
They stand firm and fight for what they believe in.
So if whoever said that can’t come out, then I
don’t have who to respond to.
Why these many negative stories about you?
I’m blessed. When God has blessed you
abundantly, you will surely have enemies. A lot
has been said about my person. The first was
when I stopped acting awhile back. Rumours
went round that my father shot me. Later, it was
that my father disowned me. It was published in
newspapers. I later went to an event with my
daddy. He even granted an interview. We posed
for pictures but that interview was not published.
Maybe they want to sell an image that I’m not in
good terms with my family. Well, blood is thicker
than water. I’m well loved and cherished by my
parents and siblings.
Also, a movie I did in 2003 called Itohan and
directed by Chico Ejiro made headlines in 2009.
The dog issue: some mischievous persons that
have access to the location pictures connived with
a journalist. They called me up about the pictures;
after telling them the source, they still went
ahead to write a terrible story about my person.
Up till now, some people still make mention of it.
The video is online and also on my tweet page for
people to watch. I’m even tired of trying to
defend myself. Then this HIV story by an
imaginary friend. I wonder what next. Maybe they
will get someone that looks like me to act a s*x
movie. Whatever happens, I’m strong, I will
survive because I have God’s grace and I am
immensely blessed.
Talking of blue films, US-based Nigeria actress and
producer, Afro Candy, said she would like to
feature you in one of her s*x movies.Like I said,
talk is cheap. I’ll like to have a dinner date with
Richard Branson, it’s just a wishful thinking. It’s
when she approaches me then I will know she is
serious. I have gone through a lot, now I know
better. I can’t condemn her, she is Hollywood
standard when it comes to showing off her body.
The likes of Janet Jackson, Halle Berry even most
of their female musicians have gone nude, and
Nigerians adored them. For me, I can’t go totally
nude, never. My mum told me never to go nude.
If not, I have got a beautiful body and I’m not
afraid to flaunt it. Besides other artistes have
taken pictures with panties and bra, maybe on
the beach. So it looks cool but when you wear and
pose on bed, it smells s*x.
About the pictures you posted on Twitter, why did
you post them only to remove them and
I took those pictures in a friend’s guesthouse. My
photographer took them. I was wearing a g-string
and bustier. It was an on the spot thing. I didn’t
make up for the pictures and she took them with
her Blackberry phone. They were not good
enough. I guess I was bored then. I can be up to
no good when I’m bored and need a little
distraction. So now I watch it when I’m bored; I
watch what I do, so I won’t take such pictures
again. Not as in looking at the pictures. I don’t
have them at all.
Why did you apologise?
My friends and fans didn’t like the pictures; that’s
why I apologised.
There was a time a man grabbed your boobs in
public and you called him a black monkey, what
Oh! the black monkey knows himself. No need to
delve into that.
So what’s Cossy currently working on?
I’m working on my music video, fashion line and
also trying to keep fit via pole climbing.
