Nikki Samonas has spoken out about her controversial scene with Nigerian actor and producer Jim Iyke in the movie “My First Wife.”
The 2015 drama is known for its controversial and e****c scene with Jim Iyke and Nikki Samonas.
In Nikki’s opinion, the scene should not have been cut, but the editors were not up to the task and let it pass.
“There were clear rules, it was strictly business,” she said. “Jim Iyke is not my boyfriend, I don’t even have his phone number.”
Nikki said she got the role when Jim Iyke came to Ghana for a film shoot and was impressed with her talent.
She continued: “When I got there [Nigeria], I did my job. The film included romantic scenes. It was a straightforward film. It was me, Jim Iyke and Rita Dominic. I was on set for about five days. We shot three takes on that scene.”
Nikki said she didn’t understand the fuzz about the scene but acknowledged that every new thing attracts attention, adding that the editors should be blamed for the poor job.
“I don’t understand why you are revisiting this film because it’s been a long time. It was the first of its kind. And every new thing gains attraction. There were some scenes that weren’t supposed to make the cut. The editing bench didn’t do their job.”
