My pastor said I can attract men with my butts and...

Vivian Okyere

Ghanaian actress Vivian Okyere, alias Tundra, says her big butts have enhanced her career and helped her secure roles in several movies.

Vivian insists her heavy butts are natural but has admitted they sometimes make her feel guilty.

“Sometimes I feel guilty about my butts and the way men lust after them. I was once walking by the New Town road in Accra and one guy driving a vehicle looked at me till he almost caused an accident.

I felt bad about it. My pastor told me I can attract men with my butts and preach to them about God to accept Christ in their lives,” Vivian told NEWS-ONE.

“I am proud of my body and I thank God for giving me this body… My body is natural. I know some people out there who have worked on their bodies.

My body is not fake and I can say that somehow my body does get me movie roles but if you have the body, figure and all that but (you) don’t have the talent, you won’t go anywhere. Mercy Johnson for example has the body, she is pretty and is also talented and it is working for her,” Vivian added in an exclusive interview with NEWS-ONE about her career, nudity in the movies and her body.

She was categorical that her sexy big butts had earned her more roles in movies.

Vivian spoke about nudity in Ghanaian movies and said the local Twi movie industry deserved commendation in that area.

According to her, nudity and erotic roles are minimal in Twi movies as compared to Ghanaian movies in English.

“Kumasi actors are not special than English actors and vice versa. We are all the same people; the only difference is language.

But I enjoy acting in English movies because we are always given scripts and it helps to rehearse at home and work on your character. But with the Twi movies, sometimes you go on set before you are told what to do.

In cases where you are given a script, when you get on set they still add more scenes. However, Twi movies don’t engage in too much nudity and sex. That is minimal and I think we should commend that,” the beautiful actress said.

Vivian is a Ghanaian actress with many years of experience. She has huge following from the local Twi movie industry but enjoys acting in English.

She grew up partly in Ghana and the Republic of Benin. She had her basic education at Serwaa Nyarko Girls’ School and proceeded to Nkawkaw Senior High School for her secondary education.

Growing up, she had always wanted to be an actress. Fortunately, a friend of hers called Sean Paul introduced her to acting by helping her harness her acting techniques.

She has played major roles in series and movies such as Feel This Moment, David Baa, Chinese Mafia, Holy Family, Wasted and others which are yet to be released.

Her latest movie, Me Giwu Girl by Media5 Promotions, will be out August ending.

Vivian said she admires Mercy Johnson and expressed the hope to act with her one day.
