by Tutu Akinlabi


Stunning actor O.C. Ukeje was at the Teen Y! office recently and he revealed some tasty titbits about himself.

He was interviewed by Teen Y! editor, Yemi Obamedo.

Excerpts below:

Editor:  Hello OC

OC Ukeje: Hi Yemi

Editor: So, tell us, how was growing up like for you?

OC Ukeje; Growing up was a period of mixed feelings. Mixed feelings in the sense that there were different seasons of my period of growing up. My father was a caterer before he passed and there was a season when we lost everything and we had to live with my cousins and there were fourteen in all, it was definitely the roughest season of our lives.

There was a season were it turned to fights between what we had and for the family business because of the level of lack and the level of poverty, and then there was a season of worse when my dad passed you probably because of the troubles we’ve had and all, then came a season when things started to get better for some strange reason.

So growing up was mixed with all sorts of things, I learnt to be self sufficient and not dependent on anyone, we learnt to manage our resources and exactly what we had, I remember my mum always saying “ be judicial in your spending’ I can never forget that sentence in my whole life, she said that all the time. She taught me and my siblings to never covet other people’s things, so I can say my mother invested a lot of interesting ideas into us. Growing up was crazy but we survived it.

Editor: Okay now knowing that you were “cute” meant you had alot of crushes on girls right?

OC Ukeje:  Well I had, and you know because of the school mother concept I had a lot of girls who wanted to be my school mothers. At a time, I think I had three of them and one was a hausa chick , her name just barely skipped my mind but yeah I had “school mothers”.

Then one of the girls that I had a huge crush on, her older  sister was like my school aunty, her name I remember clearly “Teni” because her sister was my classmate and I a huge crush on her because she was super cute he name was “ Toyin Alabi” I don’t know if she is married now, she probably is, but you know that’s how it went.

Editor: Who is your crush in the entertainment industry at the moment?

OC Ukeje: I would say Chidinma Ekile, she is all forms of cute.
