Popular Ghanaian actress, Nadia Buari, says she takes it as an honour that Nigerian singer D’banj mentions her name as part of a celebrity list on his latest naughty song “Oliver Twist”.
“If D’banj mentions me along with celebrity names such as Beyonce, Rihanna, Omotola and Genevive, I take it as an honour”, Nadia told Showbiz last Saturday.
However as to the question of her garri drinking habits, Buari was mum. In the song where D’banj valiantly declares his lust for various gorgeous actresses and performers, he sings about Nadia:
“And Nadia Buhari
Cos she no dey drink garri
It’s not her fault you know”
Asked whether or not she does drink the garri (the Naija cereal), Nadia had an LOL moment and said, “I love the song but as to whether I drink gari or not I will like to keep it a secret” Nadia said good humouredly. “I believe, however, that D’banj just used gari to rhyme with my name Buari”.
Nadia who received two nominations for Best Actress in a Leading Role at the African Movie Academy Awards in 2007 and 2009 and has been nominated as Best Actress In A Supporting Role [English Language] in the 2011 Ghana Movie Awards, revealed that, among all the movies she has played in, she hasn’t seen her best yet.
“Among all the movies I have shot, I can’t really choose a particular movie that I love so much. I believe there is an improvement in every movie I have featured,” she said.
“In every movie I play, I love to play different roles. I like to be a thief in one, in another, a church elder and so on. That is what makes me who I am.”
She said her charity foundation, Nadia Buari Foundation which is targeted at helping the poor will be launched very soon. “I believe that using my personality to help the less privileged will be the right thing to do” the pretty actress said.
