Nollywood actor and comedian Uchemba Williams has revealed why he thinks a lot of people thought him to be a fraudster.
In a recent interview, the actor and Instagram sensation also shared how he copes with female attention.
Williams said, “I love my female fans always. I think for me I’m used to it because I have been on the limelight for over 22 years, since I was a child.
So, it doesn’t come as a shock to me. All I have to do, is wear a smile, dress well, smell nice, and be kind to people. Even though some people can be insensitive. Sometimes they see you in a very serious place they just come in and interrupt you, you just have to be calm because most times they can’t control themselves.
“I try as much as I can to keep my distance. I’m a very strict person. I am disciplined. I keep boundaries always but however, they are my people and I love them.”
Speaking about how he survived the controversy when he was accused of fraud on social media.
According to Williams, not many brands are strong enough to rise after that kind of controversy, recalling how he was able to handle that period with grace.
Uchemba Williams said: “I tell people what happened, I guess if it was in the US wouldn’t have happened because unfortunately, we are in a country people don’t do their findings before they lay accusations and blow it out of proportion.
“I was accused and they tagged me a fraudster. That I defraud people in the US and UN.
“The funniest thing is why was I not arrested? Why didn’t you hear in the news that Williams Uchemba has been arrested? When I called out the people that claimed I scammed them to come out or meet me at EFCC, how come no one came out? When the guy that started the whole thing saw that I was false and apologized, why didn’t the media carry it? There was an apology.
“I always say something once your hands are clean you will always win. I have never for once taken anything that doesn’t belong to me, never for once lied about something that I’m not, after the controversy the next month I traveled and I attended the same conference that they claimed I was not the Deputy Youth Representative for.
“Some people want you to fail, especially if they can’t understand why you are been blessed so much. Also, God wanted to use this to let people know that he truly exists. Somebody said to me, ‘ Williams in 3 years you won’t have any movies job or endorsements deal’, he didn’t finish saying that, the next week I got my real estate brand ambassador deal.
“It happened in December, I got the deal in January. That year was the best year, so far of my entire career. I did two blockbusters movies, one was 300 million the other was 280 million.
“When God is on your side and your hands are clean you would make it through. Always holding on to Jesus,” he added.
