Zulaihat Ibrahim, also known Zpreety within Kannywood, came into Kannywood a few years ago and within a short time, she became a celebrity. This is as result of her acting skills and unique dancing steps. This Kebbi state-born actress in this chat with ALIYU ASKIRA says she has lost count of the number of guys that have indicated interest in dating her as well as other issues.
Zpreety, for quite sometime now you have not been visible; efforts made to get you on phone proved abortive. In addition, your comedy programmes that normally appeared on social media have disappeared. What happened?
It is true; I have been at home meaning I have been in Zuru for a very long time, not even in Zuru, but in my village where I was born, but still in Zuru local government area. I also deliberately cut off all communications with my friends and colleagues in Kannywood.
It was when you did a comedy programme on the coronavirus pandemic on social media that we noticed that you are now back in the industry. What do you say about?
I have been sick for a very long time, even before the coronavirus issue came up, I had rushed to my village in Zuru local government area of Kebbi state for local treatment. Thank God when I started recovering, I composed the coronavirus programme and gave it to several social media bloggers and when it was aired, people knew instantly that I had recovered. Nobody actually paid me for the programme, but it was widely accepted because thousands of people viewed it and as you are aware, that has fetched me lots of fortune and also made me popular.
Okay, when you are fully recovered, will you return to the industry or are you planning to settle down as a housewife?
I have a very tall ambition to be a successful actress, which I have partially achieved. I also intend to go back to school to further my education; my comedy programme will also continue to appear on social media pages, especially on Instagram facebook and YouTube. But most importantly, I will return to active acting and production; what I mean is that I will combine acting with film production. I am thinking of registering my own company, Zpreety Multimedia; it will be a multi-purpose firm which will handle film production, online publications, acting, modelling, fashion design and a host of others.
Are you into any serious relationship?
I am not only into any relationship; I have honestly lost count of people interested in dating me; some are even ready to marry me immediately I say yes to them as an answer. So, to say I am into a relationship is an understatement, but if I am to be specific, yes I have a boyfriend, but we are into platonic relationship; I am sure you know what I mean? You also alleged that I was under a spell or some people used juju to destroy me; this we cannot discuss in detail on phone. When the coronavirus pandemic subside, I will move to Kano to continue with my life. Then we can then sit down and discuss this issue in detail, but for now, please tell my fans that I am recovering fast and very soon, I will return to full time acting.
