While some love Cossy Orjiakor for being herself, others have this negative impression about her and this bothers her a lot.
She said “The worst rumour I have heard about myself was that dog story where it was alleged that I slept with a dog.
It was so terrible that even the producer and director denied me. It got me thinking that what of if I was dead. If they had the mind to deny a living person, then, they can as well poison you. I took the producer to court because I served them court papers.
We got the video and my mother said if these people can go to this extent to tarnish me, then they can do worse and she advised that I should just leave them. It was actually my mother that made me forget about the matter because my sister is a lawyer and she was working for Ricky Tafa, a law firm based in Abuja. She was ready to take up the case but my mum asked me to forget about it and I did.”
During the whole saga, Cossy said she never for once changed her perception about the industry as it’s one of those things to experience as a notable face in Nollywood.
“The experience didn’t stop me from acting. If I am called upon to take up a movie role, I go but I am very particular about roles. I love my life. I can’t really go to a place where I will be scared. Some people don’t like you so you just keep off..”
