What happened to my marriage and career –Uche Jombo speaks out

Actress , Uche Jombo , has refuted claims that her 2012 marriage to a Puerto Rican, Kenney Rodriguez , has affected her acting career .
Last year , it was rumoured that the union , which is blessed with a son , was in trouble , but the actress quickly addressed the issue on her Instagram page , pleading with bloggers to stop spreading negative news .
In a chat with Sunday Scoop , the actress said the decision to choose movie roles carefully had nothing to with her marriage.
 She said , “Marriage didn ’t stop me from acting regularly. Even before I tied the knot , I had already started selecting projects I do.
 I choose my projects now because I am not interested in being in every film again . 
Also , if people cannot see that I am good for a certain role , I don’ t need to convince anyone at my level . I have been acting for 18 years and I have matured in the business.
 I got into acting at a young age , but I need more time to promote the projects I do and still focus on my marriage.”
Despite featuring as a women leader in a new movie, Dr. Mekam , Jombo says she doesn ’t have plans to venture into politics .
 “My best friend in Nollywood , Desmond Elliot, is already a politician and do I like him since he became a politician ? I cannot say .
 I don’ t have plans for politics, but I will still be vocal about Nigerian politics .
“I feel the way politics works all over the world has a lot to do with acting and I am already an actor.
 I don’t think I want to be acting in my real life . Politicians literally act when they should take it as a profession , ” she said .
Speaking on her role in Dr . Mekam , she explained , “There are many people that look at Nigerian politics from afar and think they can do better . They don’ t understand that Nigerian politics is beyond one’s intention or what you think you can bring to the table . It generally has to do with how you can position yourself to arrive at your destination , but Dr. Mekam ( a role played by Kalu Ikeagwu ) does not know this . He thinks he can just come into politics , tell people his dreams and they would hand over the office to him .”
