“Why Uche Jombo hated me at first” – Ini Edo reveals

Popular Nigerian film actress, Iniobong Edo has disclosed why her longtime friend, Uche Jombo hated her from the first time they met and how they moved past the incident to becoming very close friends.

During a fresh interview with media personality, Chude Jideonwo, Ini Edo was asked about her close friendship with Uche Jombo to which she surprisingly revealed that the two didn’t start off as friends at all.

She claimed Uche thought she was very rude because when they first met at a movie location, not only was she late but didn’t greet as well.

She added that they were able to move past it easily and just joked about it over drinks. In her words:

“Uche [Jombo] and I started off as not friends. She thought I was so rude. She thought I was so rude, that I was doing too much. She was like “what is she feeling like?” Like, I kept them on set for days. The first time we ever worked together, apparently she had been hearing my name, “oh that new girl”, “oh she’s all over the place, all the producers are using her now so she’s like the it girl”, you know, that is already making her feel like “what is she feeling like, mschewww”.

And then I now came late. I kept them like how many days on set. So eventually, according to her, I walked into the set and I did not say hello to her. So she was really upset with me. She hated me, apparently.

So eventually, I think, I don’t know how that wall got broken. I’m a sweetheart anyway, so you can hate me from afar but you can’t hate me when you know me, that’s just what it is.

So you know, I think eventually we got talking and I think we shared a drink. She didn’t waste time to tell me “you, you no dey greet person abi? You no know say I no be your mate!” [laughs].

I think that’s how the ice was broken, and she’s been an amazing person to me. I think it’s mutual respect and real love for each other. There’s just really nothing but to friendship than just love and respect. Once you have that for each other, it’s not like you guys won’t have issues or you won’t step on each other’s toes, but once that mutual respect is there and that real love is there, we can communicate cuz I like to talk, so we can talk through everything.”
