Nollywood actress, Empress Njamah as with many celebrities has been trailed by different scandals.

Despite the enormous controversies that almost denied her the limelight, she is still able to keep her head up.

In a recent interview, the actress reveals that she can never settle down with a poor man.

See excerpts from the interview:

What’s your dream man like?

Let me tell you something about life, I will not come here today and tell you I want a God-fearing man, he must be tall, he must be this, he must be that.  I have once said something about what I want in a man, and then the person I fell in love with was the exact opposite. You cannot dictate feelings, you cannot dictate emotions, that’s why there’s something called love at first sight, you cannot tell.

I’m not going to clone a man that I want.  There is this thing called chemistry, once you see it, you know it. I won’t come here and tell you that he must be tall and he must have six packs, I’m not crazy about that, so basically what I want in a man are what I’ll probably see at that point and what’ll attract me at that point.

So you are saying you can settle for any man whether rich or poor?

I’m not going to tell you what I want. But you get into an expensive shop to pick up something because you can afford it. You see something you can afford, then you buy it but if you cannot afford it, take a walk.

The goods are for someone that can afford it, that’s the best I can tell you. I will not settle for less, my sister and that’s the truth. People come and tell you all sort of lies and want to praise themselves and say “I can marry a poor man” the poor man no know wetin him see, abeg!

I dey tell una say I am a real person, we all have been through tough times, we all have paid our dues one way or the other. So no poor man must get close to me. Those who know the worth pay the dues.
