Narrating how it all happened and how he felt, he said; “It was Aunty Peace Anyiam-Anyiam-Osigwe, the Chief Executive of the AFRICA MOVIE ACADEMY AWARDS (AMAA) who called me that time, sometime in 2010 and told me that I should send my profile and other materials.

“There was a time she mentioned about the national award but my brother, that was the least thing I expected to consume.

At that time I was like how much are my going to be getting from them to my little understanding then. I didn’t pay much attention to it but I submitted the information she required.

“About some months later, somebody called me that I should go and check one of the national dailies that my name was shortlisted for the national award honours, and I was like how, to be honest, I had forgotten that I submitted my credentials.

“I ran quickly to go and get myself a copy of the paper and opened the page and I saw my name, I was no 144 on the category of member of the federal republic, I couldn’t believe it.

“I will be forever grateful to Goodluck Ebele Jonathan for remembering us for the little things that we do, that we were able to change the narrative in the entertainment industry, it was bigger than I could chew.

“I am so grateful and remain forever grateful for his gesture.”

When he realized he achieved fame, the actor and businessman said it was when he made his first million in the year 2003.

Wema added that despite not fully understanding why she loved to be battered by him, she loved it because he gave her attention thereafter.

She said;

“He would beat me up thoroughly.

“Ironically, I loved it when he battered me, I just don’t know why that was the case. But, I remember he would pamper me after assaulting me, and, I think I loved it because he’d give me attention after the battering. Honestly speaking, I miss being beaten up by him, a lot.

“I remember there was a day he saw a suggestive message on my phone. Out of anger, he gave me a hard slap on the cheek. My siblings came to know that I was a victim of domestic abuse. They pleaded with me to leave him, but I told them that they should leave me alone as I was enjoying being beaten up by him.”
