I will cover my boobs when Iâ€™m old - Cossy Orjiakor
Like her or hate her, three things are bound to endear you to
Cossy Orjiakor. They are; her friendliness, intelligence and
boldness to discuss issues affecting her personality as well
as her acting career.
These attributes played out last week when Showtime
Celebrity ran into her, and later engaged her in an interview.
Cossy bares it all, dropping the bombshell that men are at
her beck and call. She also dropped the hint that she will be
getting married next year and many moreâ€¦
We learnt that you have insured your boobs for N256
million. Is it true?
Itâ€™s not true. Sometimes, some of these bloggers just cook
up stuffs that are not true. But it sounds so interesting, thatâ€™s
why I didnâ€™t want to confirm whether itâ€™s true or not. Let the
story just be.
Why donâ€™t you want to talk about it?
Itâ€™s because the story is a fiction. Somebody just cooked it
up. I donâ€™t know anything about it. I didnâ€™t tell anybody Iâ€™m
insuring my boobs. Itâ€™s something
that somebody just cooked up somewhere. The story didnâ€™t
generate from me neither did it generate from
my Twitter handle or Instagram.
But do you have the intention to insure your boobs ?
I might do it, or not. But I donâ€™t want to talk about my
Your face have been missing on the silver screen,
have you dumped acting for music?
Iâ€™d act when I am invited, and when the pay is considerable.
I wouldnâ€™t be put under pressure. At least, I have done two
movies this year. I canâ€™t go to peopleâ€™s offices to beg for
roles. When I was hungry, I used to go to producers to beg
for roles. But now, I am no longer hungry.
Although, I am planning to come out with a TV reality
show. The show will hit the screen before the end of
February, next year. I have somebody who is helping
me to develop the concept. It is about the living conditions
of most Nigerians. I donâ€™t want to talk much about it until it
hits the screen.
Donâ€™t you think, you are being misunderstood by your
Thatâ€™s not my business what people think about me. But itâ€™s
my business what I think about myself. I feel good, Iâ€™m
happy, I am myself and Iâ€™m not a fake
person. Yet I have a lot of fans who love me. People tend to
pretend a lot. When you are simple and down-to- earth,
they will not want to identify with you. I donâ€™t fake myself.
Life is all about having fun,
and what is the best time for me to catch my fun than now
that Iâ€™m still young, and not when Iâ€™m old and gone.
Are you still doing your music?
Yes, Iâ€™m still doing my music. Once in a while, I go for
private shows where I am well paid. But I have not graced a
big stage. Iâ€™m doing music for the love of it.
When you love something, it does not matter what it take
you to do it. Iâ€™m not in a hurry, one step at a time. When I
am in a mood to do music, I do it. I am not doing music to
make millions of naira or to compete with anybody. I am
doing music because of the passion I have for it.
Are you working on any album at the moment?
I have some songs already and my video has been released
online. I featured Durella in my single.
Do you feel hurt each time, people address you as
queen of boobs?
That word was first used by BBC focus on Africa when they
described me as Queen of Boobs. I am okay with whatever
you choose to call me.
How often do you get angry?
I stock my house with food stuff. So, each time Iâ€™m angry, I
keep on eating and eating until I get satisfied.
Is Cossy in love?
Now or before?
Both now and before?
At the moment, I have a lot of people that love me. Iâ€™d fall in
love. But when I dating someone, I hate to make it a public
affair. I canâ€™t even take a picture
with my man in public. But I can take pictures with my fans.
Anybody you see me pose for a shot is my fan. I wouldnâ€™t
even agree to share the same table
with my man at a function.
This, for me, is a way of
avoiding people raising eyebrows.
Are you saying that you are not in love at the
I donâ€™t know! Anyway, I will be getting married come next
You mean, you are getting married for real?
A woman get married when she is ready to get married. I
will get married next year or I will make a baby next year.
Who is the lucky man?
I donâ€™t know.
What stands out among other celebrities?
I donâ€™t know, everybody is made in the image of God.
What do you do when you are not on set, or
Anything that makes me happy. Whatever I want I get it. If I
want a man, I can always get him. In fact, men are the
cheapest thing to get in life. I have a lot of admirers. I can
always get one if I so wish.
When a man say hi! And you
reply him, you can always woo him to yourself if you like.
Are women not cheap too?
A woman will run after you because of what she will gain
How many passes do you get per each passing day
from men basis?
If Iâ€™m in a mood to chat with a man, I do it wholeheartedly.
But you will hardly see me in the company of a man. I donâ€™t
want to give away myself or make public exhibition of my
relationship. I prefer to pay hide and seek game.
Will the man in your life agree to your terms?
I donâ€™t know what you mean by the man in my life. But the
one I know will not like to make it public.
Do you always feel noticed or shy each time you
attend a social gathering?
Each time, I attend a function, I donâ€™t even feel that people
are looking at me. I will just catch my fun, but whereby Iâ€™m
not catching any fan, I will quickly leave
Whatâ€™s your kind of man?
It depends on what I want at a particular time. But I like well
built young men with flat tummies. I can take pictures with
Have you been embarrassed before in connection
with your boobs?
I donâ€™t even give room for such things. Nobody can walk up
to me to do any nonsense. You dare not try it. My boobs
are real, full and fresh. When you see
good things, you appreciate them. But donâ€™t dare to touch
them. You know what is good. When Iâ€™m old and my
boobs are not firm any more, I will cover them.
Is your boobs your greatest gift from God?
I donâ€™t know, life is the greatest gift.
Whatâ€™s the difference between now and when you
first joined Nollywood?
Iâ€™m older now and more wiser than when I first ventured
into acting. Then I used to dance for Obisereâ€™s band, and
there was this beautiful album I was doing with them,
before tongue started wagging
that I shouldnâ€™t be dancing for Obisere because of my
That was how I abandoned the band. But right now, I am
older, I will return fire-for-fire to anybody that will make me
feel bad at any point in time. I donâ€™t keep
people with negative thoughts around me. I mingle with
people with positive minds.
Would you say life has been fair to you?
Iâ€™m living a life I have always imagined for myself. I live well.
God has been kind to me. I live in a beautiful home. I have a
dog and more over, I eat whatever I want to eat. I get
massaged whenever I
need it. Each time, I need to be massaged, I always call up a
friend who helps me out.
You love dogs a lot?
I have three dogs as pets. I call them different names. One is
called Caesar while the other is called Gabriel and so on.
It was rumoured sometime ago that you made love
to a dog?
Have you watched the movie. If you have not watched it
then you have no right to ask me anything about the movie.
I watched it mid-way! Was I naked or not? When you make
love to your wife, do you go naked or you put on your
clothes? So, if I wasnâ€™t naked thatâ€™s means I wasnâ€™t making
love to the dog. For me to make love to the dog, I should
If you have the chance to come back to life, would
you still want to be Cossy?
I love myself, my boobs and my voice. My friends told me
that my voice sounds very sexy. I also have this smile of a
baby. God has been so kind to me. At least, I live in my own
house in Lekki. I eat anything I want to eat, and I donâ€™t seek
for attention, I drive a posh car. What else can I ask for? A
husband or a baby?
