According to the Emir of Uke Kingdom, his father’s twin sister was the first person to be bestowed with that title and since her demise, no one has been given that honour. I am more or less a role model to women in that community.”
She also debunked the rumours that alleged that engaged in some fetish practices before she was bestowed with the title.
She said “That is wrong to say. I am a religious person who does not joke with prayers. I would not dabble into anything that would rob me of (a good relationship with) my creator.”
Sotayo Gaga, also said that as a married woman, there is a limit to how intimate she can get with fellow actors on set.
“Even before I got married, I was selective about the kind of roles I portrayed as an actor. My husband is quite understanding and he knew I was a filmmaker before we got married. However, as a respected wife, I would not play any role that my husband won’t be happy with, such as being too intimate with the opposite sex.”
Describing her experience in marriage so far as ‘sweet’, Sotayo Gaga said, “It has been a sweet experience since the day we started dating till now that we are a married couple. Obviously, there will be ups and downs, just like in any relationship, but we are mature enough to handle things.”
