One Nollywood actress who can stand tall without a blister of scandal is Queen Nwokoye. Queen, in a new interview with DailyIndependent, had this to say about how she got to remain scandal- free.
- Why don’t you wear revealing clothes like some of your colleagues in the industry?
I am a very simple person and I hate exposing my body. No way.
- You have somehow managed to stay off scandals.
I think it has to do with my upbringing. I had extra-strict parents. My grandfathers were headmasters. My parents are knights of the Catholic Church. I have a strong religious background. My life was almost triangular. I went from home to school and to church and back home. Even till my first year in school, I always woke up to go and mop the altar in the church for the morning Mass. I was the president of the block rosary crusade (Catholic prayer group) in my area. I have younger sisters and I need to show them good examples. They look up to me. I am the first and they look up to me. Now, as a grown person, there are things I cannot do.
- You sound so religious; is there any plan of you retiring someday from acting for religious life?
No. I am not ready to become a reverend sister. I actually thought I was going to be a nun then, which was past. But I just knew I would not make a good reverend sister because I wanted a family of my own. I want to live the rest of my life with a man I will call my own. So I dropped the idea of being a nun and faced reality. And that is why I waved the idea aside.
