In a emotional laden voice, the actress lamented that since the Newspaper broke the news, she has been receiving countless embarrassing calls.
Ms Eze refuted the claims that superstar actress, Genevieve Nnaji Makes her ‘wet’, but maintained she admires her as a role model.
In her words; “ I was misquoted. She can never make me wet. In fact, I can never be sexually aroused by any woman, whosoever.
The reporter that interviewed me took it out of proportion. It’s so embarrassing. My mother, sisters and other concerned members of my family have been on case. They are so disappointed. I want to seize this opportunity to clear all this up. I have never had the intention of being bi-sexual. It’s against God and humanity. I would have taken up the issue legally, but was advised against it by my senior colleagues.
“I also want to apologize and seek for the understanding of all those this negative reports have affected in any way. It was never my intention to put anybody through any form of embarrassment”
