Ebube Nwagbo is no doubt a household name as she has remained consistent since her debut in 2003.  This diva is amazingly warm and beautiful.  She exudes innocence and brilliance.  Ebube has proven that a lady can pursue her dreams in heels.  She is an A-list actress and a business woman.  Chinyere Nwonye caught up with her to discuss her hairline and more. Enjoy.

 

  • Tell   Le Clezio Magazine about your hair line.

 

It is called Posh hair.  It is my hair line.  My brain child and that means I’m the CEO.  Well, we make all kinds of hair extension.  It comes in different varieties and inches.  We’ve got the affordable ones and the luxury hair.  We are able to satisfy our teeming customers because every one can afford our hair.  We accommodate everybody, we have Peruvian hair, Brazilian hair, the Spanish hair though I have my brand name for each of them.  We’ve got the posh classic, the posh panacea, posh divo, posh classic, posh everything (laughs)

 

  • What spurred your interest?

 

First of all, I wanted to do something close to what I do which is all about showbiz.  Everyone is doing the fashion thing, so I thought of what else to do to stand out and at the same time, I didn’t want a peculiar terrain.  Again, because of my love for fashion (I love looking good), I thought I should try hair since it’s the rave of the moment.  Of course, everyone is crazy about wearing a human hair and because it is expensive, I thought I should do something that cuts across everyone.  You don’t need to rob a bank to afford one.  Posh hair is about affordability while still looking posh.  That’s what brought about my interest.

 

  • When Ebube is not on location or doing her hair stuff, What gets your attention?

I travel a lot.  I pamper myself because acting and business are both exhausting.  It is a lot of hard work, a lot of stress but I love what I do.  So, whenever I get a break, I take off.  I’m also an indoor kind of person.  So, I love to stay by myself as much as I can.  My work keeps me out a lot, it’s only fair I chill at home when opportunity presents itself.  I cherish that a lot.

 

  • Ebube is largely scandal free.  How did you achieve that?

 

I won’t say I’m scandal free or not.  But all these come with the job.  It’s part of showbiz.  We can’t keep away from the public.  When you are in the limelight, what you do is news to the public and how you strike a balance is what counts.  Stardom has it’s pros and cons but all the same, I’m myself.

 

  • How did you deal with that incident, where someone defrauded people in your name?

 

Well, it has been sorted out.  We took all measures to checkmate it.  Because Posh hair is fast becoming a household name, someone decided to seize the opportunity to dupe innocent  fans and friends.  So the person in question created an account in my name and asked people to pay money into a particular account and have their hair delivered to them.  People started approaching me for not delivering and all.  So, I took a drastic measure to put an end to it.  Well, it has been resolved.

 

  • Apart from acting, what would you have become?

At first, I wanted to become a teacher (chuckles).  When I grew older, I wanted to become a lawyer which I actually went into school to do but because I couldn’t pass JAMB so I switched again, that may be I could become a journalist so I went to school to study Mass Communication.  I wanted to become a broadcaster, I just wanted to be on T.V.  So if I wasn’t acting, I would have still been on T.V. broadcasting.

 

  • Are you in any relationship?

That is my private life and I always love to keep it that way.  Ebube is definitely in love with herself (laughs).  Okay, If you insist, I’m not in a relationship at the moment.

 

  • Where can one buy Posh hair?

It is everywhere in shops, salons, in Lagos and in Abuja.  We are working on expanding.  We do more of whole sale right now.

 

  • What is your assessment of the leadership at AGN?

I think what is happening at AGN is a peculiar problem.  It is the same thing with the leadership of Nigeria as a country.  But I believe normalcy is here to stay.  I pray for understanding and commitment even though a lot of work needs to be done to ensure stability.  I believe, we are getting there, so help us God.
