Nigerian actress and reality tv star, Lilian Afegbai, has revealed she was nearly kicked out of University after acting a steamy Nollywood scene.
Lilian, a graduate of Benson Idahosa University, Benin City, Edo state, recalled the incident during an interview on the Tea with Taymesan podcast.
The 31-year-old actress said she got the acting gig when she was an undergraduate student of the institution, and acted an erotic scene with Jim Iyke.
The movie didn’t sit well with the management of the Christian University because it was against their values, so she was made to face a disciplinary panel.
According to Lilian, she thought she would be expelled from the university, but fortunately, she wasn’t, after pleading her case before the panel. She however didn’t disclose the title of the said movie.
She said: “I started acting fully in BIU. In the first movie that I did, they almost expelled me from school because I had a s*x scene with Jim Iyke. So when the movie came out, then I was young.
“It was just a lot, and people in the school, you know how jealousy now, people started telling our reverend’s wife and so they brought the movie to school, they said I acted an illicit scene, they fixed a panel.
“I thought I was going to get expelled. I was scared. It was a Christian school and when people start talking about things in school and making it a thing, you actually face a panel. When I went to the panel, I started making them understand that I am Christian. I would never do anything to jeopardize my Christian faith but then this is acting ma, it’s make-believe.”
