Iceberg Slim is proud of me – Juliet Ibrahim speaks on featuring ex in book
Actress Juliet Ibrahim says her ex-lover, Iceberg Slim, is proud of her feat.
Juliet revealed she featured her failed relationship with the ‘Oluwa’ singer in her maiden memoir dubbed ‘A Toast To Life’.
Quizzed by JoyNews’ MzGee on ‘The Gist’ about the likelihood of Iceberg Slim becoming distraught about her write up on their intimacy, the actress disclosed that she and the Nigerian musician were on good terms.
“He doesn’t have a problem. We talk, we are cool, we are colleagues,” she said.
She added that Iceberg Slim, born Olusegun Olowokere, who was born in New York to Nigerian parents, was proud of her achievement as an author.
“He is very proud of me actually for doing what I have done because he knows I have always wanted to tell my story and I am sure that when he gets to read or whoever gets to read the book, they will understand; I also gave my very best in all my relationships,” the actress noted.
Juliet also noted that she was not without blame. She indicated that she had penned down her flaws with regard to every failed relationship of hers.
“I also spoke about where I messed up and my flaws and everything in certain situations and it is a lesson for everyone because it is when you come out of a relationship that you see what you could have done better,” Juliet Ibrahim noted.
The actress’ book launch in Accra was graced by the French Ambassador to Ghana, Mrs Anne Sophie AVÉ; Samia Nkrumah, Daughter of Dr Kwame Nkrumah and businessman, Oscar Yao Doe.
Former French international footballer, Marcel Desailly; colleagues from the showbiz fraternity including Joselyn Dumas, Sandra Ankobiah, Prince David Osei, Zynnell Lydia Zuh, Irene Logan and James Gardiner were also there to lend their support.
On-air personalities KOD, Nana Aba Anamoah, joined Juliet Ibrahim and sister Sonia Ibrahim in reading excerpts of the book to guests.
