The conversation between Destiny Etiko and the Instagram user ensued after the self-acclaimed Dramadoll shared a video of the moment she received and snapped with several individuals who were excited to see her. The crowd bumped into Destiny Etiko at a movie set and they struggled to get hugs and photos of the Nollywood actor.
In this spirit, a netizen identified as @damsel_25 took to the comment section of the post where she noted that the day she sees Destiny Etiko, she would simply grab her buttocks and wouldn’t cry as others do.
She wrote: “The day I’ll see Destiny eh, I will not cry oh, I go grab her yanch straight up.”
Replying to the comment, Destiny Etiko who didn’t take offence left some emojis of a laughing face. The actress’s response however spurred mixed comments from social media users who found their exchange humourous.
In an interview with Saturday Beats, she said, “I think it is needed sometimes to drive home certain aspects of the character portrayed. One cannot be telling stories about pr*stitutes or strippers, and they would be fully clothed. If the stories requires it; then, let them show it.
When a film is very good, the s3xual scenes are not the first thing people would remember. It would be about how the film made them feel.”
Ogunmola who has been enjoying rave reviews for her role in the movie, ‘Before Valentines’ said, “The reception the movie has enjoyed has been extremely humbling and very exciting. For one’s work to resonate with people is something to be thankful for.
My experience playing ‘Chika’ was wonderful. I literally just had to ‘channel’ a friend I knew in university who was exactly like the character. I remember reading the script and I said I wanted to play it like that. I think everyone knows or has experienced a Chika before; maybe without the drama but we all know a Christian sister who is literally married to Jesus.”
