Sexy and voluptuous actress, Sarraphina Onyekachi Amaechi, a public administration graduate of  Federal Polytechnic, Nekede,Imo State, has come a long way in the movie industry.

She isn’t shy, she has seen too much of the world to be, and she would tell you that her selling point is her huge bubbly boobs but also will be quick to remind you that it was her talent that saw her this far in the industry rather than the captivating mammary.

She is a consummate actress that would take up different roles and blend with it like she was born to be that character, even doing things many of her peers wouldn’t dare.

“It’s not about the money but more about telling the story as it were”, she said, when I asked her if she could go nude in a movie for a large sum of money. “I can act in a porn movie but I can never go nude myself. If I have to act with somebody and they use a body double to do the acting, that’s fine. But as for me,I can never go nude. If you insist that I must act nude, then you have to use a body double” she stated, matter-of-fact.

She also confirmed to me that men find her boobs irresistible objects of admiration and even share an experience where her boobs caused a stir. “The breasts are becoming more and more aggressive by the day” she said giggly “one fateful day I was travelling, just at the airport, as I just bent down to open my bag, my breasts fell out like bombs. I was so embarrassed but then that is part of me and I am proud of it”
