Nigerian cinematographer and Film maker, Kemi Adetiba has said she is not less of a woman because she isn’t married or have kids.
The filmmaker shared a video of Tracee Ellis Ross on her Instagram page and wrote;
“Before the “miss the point” folks start running rogue in my comment section, Tracee Ellis Ross has never once said she never wants to be married or have children. What she is saying however, is that because she currently has neither, some people choose to invalidate all of her personal achievements and growth. Their line of reasoning is her life is yet to have TRUE meaning until a husband and child punctuate her entire existence.
This struck a chord as I get this all the time. I will be 38 in just over a month and a half, and while I would LOVE to be married (to my God-chosen companion, and best friend) and have child(ren), I am very comfortable with the knowledge that my life is just as valid, and beautiful, and happy, and successful, if for some reason that never comes to pass. Marriage and kids is not my “crowning glory”… It’s another BEAUTIFUL step in life I would love to take. I’d also love to make (and keep) a billion dollars in my lifetime, but I won’t be any less of a woman or Kemi Adetiba if that didn’t come to pass either.
No… I’m not comparing the two. I’m just highlighting it doesn’t diminish a (Wo)man’s -Kemi Adetiba’s – worth if it never happens.
Hello… Good morning ☺️ Have a great Tuesday.”

Williams Uchemba Reacts After He Was Accused Of Being Gay
Popular Nigerian actor, Williams Uchemba responded on Tuesday to an accusation that he is gay and he is strictly into men.
A blogger, identified as Kosi Ugo, had taken to Facebook to accuse the actor of being a homosexual. Kosi Ugo wrote;
“What I can never bring myself to understand is why a man who is strictly into men will go and pick one innocent woman and marry, for what bikonu?
It’s better your wife deals with a side chick than to deal with a side cock; where she wan start from?
“My husband is cheating on me with another man.”
This Uche Williams marriage is dead on arrival. It’s only a matter of time his wife will come out crying like that of Ken Eric’s.
By the way, if you don’t know that Uche is gay, you’re very late to the party.”
In response to this, Uchemba, who recently tied the knot with his longtime girlfriend, addressed the allegation levied against him and he threatened to take up legal action against anyone who attempts to slander his name.
The actor wrote;
“Someone brought something to my attention recently. I read it with amusement and decided to speak immediately. Usually I would ignore this but for some reasons I think its important to address it.
Let me clarify the following
1. My name is Williams Uche Mbah not Uche Williams
2. For those of you calling my attention or linking me with the accusation in question, let me clearly state that I don’t know anyone by the name of Uche Williams.
3. If anyone has any accusation against me, Williams Uche Mbah, they should feel free to make it.
4. Anyone with an accusation against Williams Uche Mbah must ensure they have evidence to back it. Because if the accusation is false, I will respond with the full weight of every legal option at my disposal. Usually, I ignore fools and slanderers but in this case I am glad to make an exception.
5. This is the last I will speak on this issue until any accusation has been made directly to me. I just got married to the love of my life and we are planning our honeymoon. I dont have time to waste on foolishness. I dont like what I hate.
One more thing, chasing clout seems like fun until clout turns around and bites you. And the greatest response to a cloutchaser is to ignore them completely.
God bless you all and have a lovely day.”
