“I didn’t feel shame, but inadequate as a woman.”— Nse Ikpe-Etim

Jul 14, 2023

Everyone is celebrating her as Mrs Jumoke Randle from a star turn in King of Boys: The Return of the King. She is my guest today; Nse Ikpe-Etim.

We’ve been trying to do this interview for two years and I know that today, that conversation will be worth it.

I want to ask Nse about the struggle to have a child, dealing with deep dark depression and her career – where she has been celebrated from her very first movie until now.

It’s Nse today on #WithChude!

“I didn’t feel shame, but inadequacy, I felt inadequate as a woman because every time it was mentioned I would remember. So that’s what it was.

Shame, I’m not ashamed. The least that I would be but I’m thankful for how I was brought up, we don’t tie shame to ourselves. We live through life fully and that’s how it is.  

My husband had stood by me through all of this because that’s the way it’s supposed to be when people say oh we need to really be thankful for. What really happened?? This is us, you walk in there as if it’s a partnership, what comes good, bad, ugly, it’s us just let it be.”
