President Of Nigerian Association Of Prostitutes: I’m A Born Again Christian, I Pray To Get Clients To Sleep With See excerpt from a recent interview with Oluchi, the President of the Nigerian National Association of Prostitutes, NANP.
Why the choice for prostitution while there are other jobs out there?
Point of correction, we are not prostitutes.
Who are you then?
We are friends of the society. Call us peacemakers. National Association of Nigerian Peacemakers.
Do you regret choosing this part of profession?
Why should I regret what puts food on my table; built me houses in Lagos and Abuja and even trained my daughter in school? I have no reason whatsoever to regret.
So you have a daughter?
Yes of course, she went for summer coaching. She is 15 years now.
When and how did you give birth to her?
I gave birth to her fifteen years ago.
Where is the dad?
That is story for another day.
You mean she doesn’t know who her father is?
Must she? I am both the father and mother.
How old are you?
I don’t know, my mum didn’t tell me when I was born.
But do you have any plan of leaving this work and getting married some day?
Marriage drove me into this and I hate the word marriage with passion.
You mean you were once married?
Yes, but things fell apart. But I’m glad because it was a blessing in disguise.
When do you plan to retire?
Maybe when I make love to C Ronaldo (laughter)
Do you mean the Portuguese footballer?
(Excitedly) Yes! He is my crush. I love him so much that his pictures even turn me on (laughter). I use to tease my colleagues that I must sleep with him and Wiz Kid before I retire.
We have met on several occasions but he doesn’t know me. I even have a picture I took with him during a show in Eko Hotel, but he doesn’t know what I do.
So, how do you intend to sleep with him?
God go do am when the time comes.
Talking about God, do you go to church?
Of course, I am a firm believer of Jesus Christ. I don’t miss church activities. Sometimes, I would declare fasting and prayer for business to come. Whenever I’m fasting, I don’t go out or ‘do’ that day.
Aside the people you sleep with, do you have any special person?
Yes, I have a boyfriend. It would shock you to know that I am very jealous. The day I noticed my guy was cheating on me, I nearly cut off his thing.
Is he aware you are a ‘peacemaker’?
No, he is not based in Lagos.
What if he gets to know?
Na you wan tell am?
Is Jessica Elvis your real name?
No, my real name is Oluchi.
