Queen Nwokoye Says This Is Why Nollywood Actors Run Out Of Money & Into Poverty by AdoraAmadi: 5:18am On Nov 30, 2016
Nollywood actress Queen Nwokoye has blamed trying to live up to people's expectation for being the reason why Nollywood actors/actresses run out of money and start experiencing a form of retrogression.

Speaking with BroadwayAfrica TV, Queen said:

“I don’t think it is because they are being extravagant, how many people are to begin with? The truth of the matter is a lot of people are known faces but they are not actually making the type of money people think they make.

Then again, it is an individual thing, it is either you are here or you are there but the truth is a lot of people don’t make that kind of money they think we have.
Some people think we get paid 10 million for acting {laughs} so a lot of times, actors want to live up to false expectations from their fans and that is how they get into trouble.

As far as I am concerned, if you are paid in Nigeria and you want a Gucci bag and you convert your Naira to dollars to go and buy it because Kim Kardashian is carrying it, it doesn’t make sense because she earns dollars.

So for me it is not about being extravagant, everybody loves the good things of life but you have to draw a balance. It is about not truly making that huge amount that actors and actresses make.”

On trading her stardom for her privacy, Queen said:

“We enjoy the stardom and attention but sometimes you just want to walk past unnoticed and just be yourself but I wouldn’t give this up for anything in the world. I love it and appreciate it.”

We expect a lot from our politicians too, that's why they have no choice but to steal from us to meet up.

The so called crappy nollywood stars act like they are worth hundreds of millions of Naira but their arse always got exposed when sickness come that just 1 million naira for treatment they can't afford it unless charity or NGO or nollywood NGO raised the money because I cant understand someone worth 100 million can not by himself or herself pay just 1 million medical bill to be well without stressing anybody.
