Aww…How Sweet! “My Husband is the Definition of True Love” – Nollywood Star Nse Ikpe-Etim




Okay BellaNaija doesn’t want to come off too lovey-dovey this Monday but don’t blame us we love LOVE.

I don’t know about you, but I have certainly been noticing this post-marital glow on Nollywood star Nse Ikpe-Etim ever since she tied the knot with the love of her life Clifford Sule in February.

The top movie star had a quick interview with Sun News about her career, life as a married woman and her emotional roles.

When asked what’s the definition of true love, Nse gushed “It’s my husband.” She later said “Being able to be yourself when you’re with someone, without the fear of judgement. It is the comfort that comes from knowing that someone out there is thinking of you and cares deeply for you.”


Excerpts from the interview;
On Marrying her first love – It’s the best and most rewarding feeling I’ve ever felt. It feels like I’ve come full circle. I am thankful.

On if she was lucky to be married –  How many times have I mentioned God so far? Pardon me but I’ll also have to give Him credit for this. We are together because God has willed it to be so. I don’t think it’s due to sheer luck. A little bit maybe, but definitely a lot of God.

On what she misses most about spinsterhood – Absolutely nothing, believe it or not but when I compare the two, there is nothing to miss. Being married means I no longer have to deal with life’s challenges on my own and I always have someone to share my happy moments with.

On coping as a wife and actress – I take it one day at a time. I know where my priorities lie and I make sure that I stay true to them.

On her personal style -What I wear depends on the occasion and my role at the event. Otherwise, my style is somewhere between a tomboy and a Disney princess.

On which designer’s muse she will like to be -I love Elie Saab. His dresses are so effortlessly chic. I also like to wear Wanger Ayu’s clothes. She gets my personal style every time.

On Regrets – Regrets are a waste of time. Everything that has happened to me so far has led me to this point. Good, bad, difficult or pleasant. I would not be Nse if my past were to miraculously get altered. So no, I have no regrets.

      Of course she had to give that kind of “diplomatic” reply na after talking all lovey dovey…if not the whole “my husband is the greatest thing since sliced bread, the telephone, and the internet all combined” talk would have seemed one kind…I’m happy that she’s happy though. Ultimately that’s what life’s about.

      @ Uche, abi oh? So we can hurry up and grasp the last vestiges of enjoyment from those things before “Oga” shows up.
