In an interview with Encomium, the actress emphasized her love for the footballer although they had never met in real life.
“My favourite Nigerian footballer is…” she paused. “I can give you a clue by mentioning the name of his club if you insist.
“The name of his club is Chelsea.”
Asked if it was Mikel Obi, she said: “I think you should be talking about Mikel Obi.

“During the Nations Cup which Nigeria won, he emerged as one of the sexiest footballers in South Africa.
I have said enough so it is left for you to sort it out if I am tripping for him or not. Whenever I am watching a football match instead of enjoying the game I derive joy in watching how the players’ ‘thing’ dangle in their shorts and their muscles too. It’s romantic indeed.
It trips me and you know what it means and the consequence; sex of course,” Ms Orjiakor said.
