Peboh Ice: Humble, intelligent, and free spirited.
Bononline: What’s growing up like?
Peboh Ice: Growing up with mom and my siblings wasn’t an easy one, as a harsh disciplinarian; married to my dad a military man. It made it even worse because she ruled us like a military lady. She walks, talks, commands, stamp her feet like a soldier! You dare not go against her rules. After my Dad passed on, mom took the responsibility. She assumed the role of a father, mother, guardian’s everything all wrapped up in one! She has zero time to negotiate with you, especially if you come home with a bad results lol. No male visitors, under no circumstances should you still be outside of the house 10pm, everything with mom is *DON’T* don’t stay out late! Don’t Gossip! Get inside and Read your books! Lol I love that woman! When I look in the mirror, every positive thing in my life today honestly, is as a result of all the muscles mom had to put in to keep us in check. My only regret now is, as an adult all the caging affected me negatively, so much that I still can’t mix up with people.

Bononline: What is your opinion in regards to sexual harassment in the movie industry?
Peboh Ice: First of all, I don’t believe in sexual harassment. There is nothing harassing when a lady is properly dressed. You can’t expose half of your boobs outside and your panties is seen (some doesn’t even wear panties) and your tan top not long enough to cover those big Ass of yours yet you put it on and hit the road! Let’s be honest here, what’s in your mind when you left the house? When you decide to make your privacy and open discussion; with a clear signal, written * boldly Come Touch me For Free* when a guy does that, you cry *Sexual Harassment* Oh please tell me something else! More especially in this industry where some ladies want to make it by any means necessary. What if the table turns? You will be surprised to know how many ladies actually want to be harassed in exchange for fame.
Bononline: What’s the way forward?
Peboh Ice: Dress the way you want to be addressed. Respect your body, is worth it.

Bononline: Advice to the Screenwriter, Producer, and the Federal Government in regards to piracy in the movie industry
Peboh Ice: A screenwriter should be a professional who knows the conventions appropriate to such work. These days everybody want to be a screenwriter as such no good story is written anymore. The business of screen writing is all about the three P’s (perseverance, patience and practice), so if u know u don’t have these qualities don’t venture into it. In the end, it only leads to supplying low content movies for pirates to explore. The producers should insist on quality. Shunning mediocrity in any production. Much has been said about the issues of piracy, one day the Government will find a lasting solution for this chronic disease in the industry. For now I rest my case.
Thanks for having me.
