Angela Okorie, the popular Nigerian actress and singer, has said one of the most important lessons stardom has taught her is to mind her business.
She told Saturday Beats, “I no longer live my normal life as a celebrity. I can no longer go on the streets to get whatever I want or do whatever I want to do. Fame has changed a lot of things about me. It has also helped me to stay on my own and mind my business.”
Okorie also maintained that she does not give room for trolls to disturb her. She said, “Whenever trolls pick on me, I pick on them back. Anything I do not want, I just handle it; and anything I do not want around me, I move it away from me.”
Responding to those who have the opinion that her adverts for beauty products are false because she is naturally light-skinned, she said, “The skincare products I am advertising right now are the ones I am using. That is why I am doing an advert for them.”
Speaking on her current projects, she said, “I have been focused on my career. I am about to release a song soon and I will be featuring a Ghanaian artiste. For the past three years, I had opportunities to feature in many movies but I wanted to concentrate on my music career because a lot of people don’t know that I sing.
“I started my career as a model. From there, I switched to acting, then music. I have lots of talents and some people don’t have that. As an entertainer, my biggest achievement is getting to this point of my career. I am doing well where I am now and that is all that matters.”
