Nigerian Men are gold diggers – Actress Elizabeth Andiron
Despite all the controversies surrounding her acting career, Elizabeth Ibukunoluwa Anjorin fondly called Lizzy strikes you as one actress who has an insatiable desire to stay on top of her game. She has come a long way, having featured in over 50 Yoruba movies, in the last few years of her sojourn in the industry.
Today, Lizzy is breaking new grounds for herself in the area of business. Only recently, she opened a supermarket, ‘Peam Me’ , located around Ogba area of Lagos, as a way of expanding her business interests. Showtime Celebrity caught up with this Badagry, Lagos State born actress at her supermarket, where she relives memories of some of her old tales, her growing interest in business and why she is still single.
Are you sure there is no sugar Daddy behind all these investments?
God is my Sugar Daddy . If there is any man that helped me to achieve all that I have achieved in business, I’m sure I wouldn’t have gotten away with it. I would have been living under the man’s roof. A man cannot be doing all this for you just for nothing. I also have a branch in Abule-Egba area of Lagos. At Abule-Egba, I am dealing in wines, costumes, assorted biscuits and shoes. I am also into supplies.
Would you say business has been more rewarding to you compared to acting ?
Acting has been rewarding to me too. As a celebrity, people are ready to meet you and to do business with you as well. In my supermarket, my fans come to patronize me. If I’m not a star they will see the supermarket as a normal super market. Some of them visit my shop just to meet me one on one. As my acting career is expanding, so also is my business interest .
Do you still believe in love ?
Yes I do .There is true love . But in Nigeria of nowadays ,there is no true love without money .Even as a young girl , if you are not well equipped financially , men will be far from you. In fact most Nigerian men are gold diggers . They want to get married to ladies with good family background (big men’s daughters ). They don’t want to build their own women .
