During a recent chat with TheNETng, the rising actress explained how her father’s status has stopped her from going nude on screen.

‘Our body is sacred meant to be seen by our husbands not the public.’

‘My father is a disciplinarian who takes no nonsense from any of us,’ she said. ‘He told us that our body is sacred meant to be seen by our husbands not the public.’

Edidem continued, ‘I heard this at the age of six and each time I wanna go nude on set or wherever, that fear creeps in. And I’ll immediately say No to it, because I wouldn’t want people to blackmail him (her father) by saying ‘isn’t that his daughter, why is he preaching to us?’’
