Nollywood Actor Chidi Mokeme has reacted to rumors of running a sex toys business and how he coped after being diagnosed with partial facial paralysis.
During an interview with media personality Chude Jideonwo, the actor acknowledged his suspected entry into the sex toys industry, stating that he launched it a few years ago and that it is doing well.
He said; ‘‘I did start a sex toy business, and that business is one of the best out there. It’s booming, and that’s how I know. We run it the way we do because people want to keep it hidden. More than ten times, I’ve had products sell out in a single day, and the company runs out of stock just as quickly”.
Chidi also emphasized the universal character of debates about sex, adding that it is the one thing that everyone does in the morning, whether they have an agenda or not.
“What’s the topic you like talking about the most? I said sex. When I said sex, everyone exclaimed, sex! I said yes, that’s exactly it. Because it’s the one thing everybody in the world agrees on. There is no ethnic divide. No religious divides, no racism. Everybody understands it. It’s the one thing that everybody sets out to do in the morning, either with an agenda or not. You are thinking about it one way or another,” he added.
He also discussed how he coped with the terrifying experience of waking up one early morning with partial facial paralysis, a disease known as Bell’s palsy.
Chidi said; “This happened as I woke up one morning. Probably, this happened in the middle of the night. Luckily for me, I was away in the US, so I was at home.
‘‘So I woke up that morning. I tried to reach my phone. The mind wants to pick up the phone, but the body is not responding. It is a very confused state,” he said.
“I said that is not going to stop me. I am going to get up. That is what I could have told my brother if he came in. Do not let that stop you. You have to keep going. That is just a small distraction,” he emphasized.
