Recall Empress had posted some traditional wedding photos of herself and Daniel Lloyd on instagram? And many thought is was real. In fact Empress got over 3000 congratulatory comments within a very short period and the news just went viral.
Anyway, according to Daniel, who says he hates to be seen as just a gigolo in movies, disclosed that as everyone called him to confirm if the news was true, Timaya also called. Why? Why?? Why??? Isn’t she your ex? Lmaooooooooooo! Girls are always winning…
Speaking to Saturday beats about his gigolo roles, he said;
“One thing about Nigeria is that once you are good at playing a certain role, they tend to typecast you. It could be hard to leave that comfort zone to do something more daring but I am not in that league. I try to play different roles; for two years now I have been able to take up more challenging roles. I was typecast as a playboy and gigolo; they put me in a box. I want to be able to play diverse characters. I am still looking forward to that Hollywood appearance; I want to showcase my talent to the world.
“I recently did a movie where I was married to Empress Njamah; that was the role that made people thought I got married to her. It was such that people called me from all over the world to ask about it. It was just a movie but people took it out of context. If you google my name right now, that is the first story you will see about me. I posted a video a few days after the rumour went viral to clear the air that it was a movie; some people believed but others were still doubtful. There is not much you can do when their mind is already made up.
“When the news went viral, it was funny to me initially but later it was annoying. Even my uncle had to call me to confirm if the news was true. Timaya called me on the phone that same day (to confirm if it was true). He said he was sleeping when people called him, so he asked if it was real or fake. He laughed about it. Initially, it was a prank; it was more like going with the flow thinking everyone would know it’s a movie. In less than one hour, my phone battery ran out about three times. People that knew me were aware it was a movie.
“If I get married today, the world would know I am married. There was a lady I met at the airport, and she told me congratulations on my wedding; I had to tell her it was a movie. I still get such vibes.”
