Nigerian/Ghanaian actress, Christabel Ekeh’s mother, madam Emma Odoom has jumped to her daughter’s defence following her circulation of her nude photos on the internet.
Recall that few days ago, Christabel was criticized and advised to seek psychological help after releasing the nude photos of herself on Instagram that raised eyebrow.
In her daughter’s defense, her mother in a new interview with showbiz said Christabel is a very decent girl and sometimes the nature of her work as an actress and model makes her go naked for some promotional campaigns.
Christabel is working and she needs our love, support and prayers to succeed,” she said in an interview with Showbiz last Saturday. “My daughter is a very decent girl, she was brought up well and cannot do anything she knows will tarnish her image. She is not sick and does not need any psychological treatment or help as people are saying out there,“ she added.
“I can only say that, as a mother, I should support my children in anything they do, I need to love them and pray that whatever they touch would go well. That is where my fulfillment lies,” she noted. When asked if she personally thinks, it was appropriate for the Before Noon actress to take such pictures in the first place, Madam Odoom said, “like I said earlier, it is work related. She is a model too and sometimes due to the nature of their work and who they are in society, they need to take on some campaigns and loving your body is one of them” she said.
Since she said people do not really know her daughter, Madam Odoom was asked to describe Christabel Ekeh and this is what she said, “Christabel is the first of my three children. She is very cool, intelligent, loving and respectful.
She is kind and is very passionate about the things of God, which is how I brought her up.”
“Her siblings look up to her and she disciplines them when they go wrong. She uses the least chance she gets to spend time with them, advising them to take their education serious and grow to become society changers,”
