Stephen Alajemba, the Nigerian actor, has recalled how he suffered rejection from women and people generally while growing up due to his facial and physical appearances. 


Speaking in a recent interview, the actor said ladies “run away” whenever they see his face.

Alajemba said his mother told him as a baby, people refused to carry him because he was not looking attractive.

He said despite the rejections from women, he, however, got married at age 23.


“My mother said my birth was not an easy one… The one that pained her the most was anyone who came to congratulate her because of me, once they saw me, they were shocked and went back. They will tell her they will come back. The next person came and did the same thing and once they saw me they were shocked. They will say later and never come back again. That I did not make money for her,” he said.

“The most painful one was that whenever she carried me to church or meeting. That nobody will accept carrying me for her. Nobody will tell her to bring her child so they will carry for her. That I did not earn anything good for her. I told her I was going to make her proud.

“Any lady who sees my facial look and stature runs away.


“Unfortunately before one accepted me I was already 20 to 22 years. I married at 23. So the first person tasted it and confirmed it and she did not leave me anymore.”
