I Wouldn’t Buy A Gucci Bag Because Kim Kardashian Is Carrying It, It Doesn’t Make Sense, I’m Paid In Naira While She’s Paid In Dollars – Actress Nwokoye Says It All

Queen Nwokoye, Nollywood actress,  speaking with BroadwayAfrica TV on why she never gave up even when odds were against her, Nwokoye said;

“What brought me and what has kept me is my passion for the job. Money is good, the attention is good but I stayed because of the passion I have for it. It is a bit frustrating when you are doing something and it is like you are not being appreciated for it or recognized for it but the passion surpassed it, so I stayed. The rest is history.”

“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.” She said.

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.”
