The Nollywood diva, Queen Nwokoye, said that not every actress cut corners to become a star in the movie industry. She cited her case as the example.
Nwokoye made the statement in an interview with Punch while reacting to the topic that actresses sleep with movie directors to get movie roles.
She stated that she has been fortunate not to be in that type of situation, and that unlike most people, she did not have to relocate to Lagos before she became a star.
“Lagos is too rowdy. It’s too busy for me. In Lagos, everybody is hustling. I am not a hustler. All my life, I have never had to hustle for anything, anything I have came to me, including stardom.”
“If it is true that actresses have to sleep with producers to get roles, I’m happy I didn’t have to do so. Sometimes, it is people’s way of trying to explain away their failure. I didn’t pass through it.”
“From my experience, nobody ever asked to sleep with me. If you present yourself as someone that can sleep around to get roles, people will treat you that way. But the truth is how many people do you want to sleep with before you become famous?”
