Queen Nwokoye is one popular Nigerian celebrity who has managed to stay off trouble in her career by avoiding scandals or reports which say anything bad about her.
The Nollywood actress who can boast of clean records in the media department took to an interview to explain why unlike a lot of actresses these days, she never exposes her body, and has strong morals.
See excerpts of her interview below;
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, how do you do it?
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.
