I’m used to negative comments –Halima Abubakar


Like her or hate her, Nollywood actress, Halima
Abubakar doesn’t care about the negative criticism
that usually follows her comments and posts on
the social media as she told Saturday Beats in a
recent chat.

Few days ago, she generated a heated debate on
her Instagram page when she posted, “Can’t wait
to disvirgin (sic) and have children. Please don’t
preach on this post, the world have heard enough
quote. Sinners will disagree.”
This comment sparked a lot of reactions from her
fans, many of whom did not believe the actress
could still be a virgin. In a chat with Saturday
Beats, the actress refused to comment on the post,
saying she had got used to the negative comments
that usually follow her posts.
She said, “People always comment on most of my
posts. You know Nigerians like to criticise whether
they understand the language or not. I just want to
believe that they just want to talk. I don’t want to
talk about my post where I said that I was a virgin
and couldn’t wait to have children. I posted what I
wanted and that was it. I have been getting
negative comments from people for over 13 years;
I think my body is used to it by now. Negative
comments do not move me at all and I do not
even have emotional feelings towards such. I do
not like talking about my love life because of the
way the media twists words. When the time
comes, people would know about my love life.
However, no matter how tight my schedule is, I
always make sure I enter the kitchen daily because
I love fresh food. I find time to cook.”

While talking about her career, the actress told
Saturday Beats that her dream role in a movie is
to play the part of a cripple.
“I love all challenging movies and I accept any
kind of roles. If I am not comfortable with anyone,
I will not accept it. I will not be involved in soft
porn or any movie that involves me removing my
clothes on camera. I look forward to playing the
part of a cripple; I am looking forward to such a
role. I would also love to be involved in a movie
that would make me swim for at least an hour;
probably a movie shot in the ocean. I love
inspirational and uplifting roles.”
Halima said she was not ready to quit acting yet.
“I hardly have time for myself because I am always
involved in one movie project or the other. I have
to keep working because there is no time to sleep
or rest anymore. I will rest when I have made
enough money. I need good movies as well as the
remuneration that comes with them. I will know
that I have enough when my bank account can no
longer contain any more money.”
