The actress also revealed she wouldn’t be putting her acting aside as she intends to combine both. She said;
They are all art and entertainment, they marry each other, and they complement each other. For me, going into gospel music is a passion that has been subdued for too long and it’s about time I came out and used the talent for the purpose it was given. None will give way to each other but I hope and pray to use both well.”
On how long she intends to pursue music as a career, Nkiru replied;
“I wish for this to last as long as my breath can take me, hence I am taking it easy because I plan to stay here long enough and be able to give out a quality message while doing the work of my Father in heaven.”
Confronted with questions concerning getting married to her colleague’s husband, the movie veteran said;
“Which colleague? Because the last time I checked I am not married to anybody’s husband.”
The appointment is like employment. You are employed to work, not to sit and eat. You work to put food on your table and also acquire more knowledge. An appointment isn’t an achievement that one would sit back and beat his chest to say I have arrived. What could be so special with ‘come and work’ that people will make so much fuss about it? We should focus our energy on more productive things. My boss is my boss, nothing more and the wife is like a mother to me.”
Asked how she reacts to rumours concerning marriage and affairs. She replied;
I don’t pay attention to things that don’t add value to me, so I barely notice them.” She also replied on What’s holding her back from taking the marital vows? She said “It will happen in due time, and when the time comes it won’t be a hidden affair; you will all be invited. When the right man comes calling and if I’m satisfied within my soul that this is the man I’m going to spend the rest of my life with. I’ve worked hard as a young lady that, right now, I don’t want just any man but a man that will be there for me. A lot is being said about me, and I know.
