In a recent interview with Sun, Nollywood actress, Angela Okorie told the newspaper how her death rumor boasted her career. Read excerpts from the interview below.
On if she have forgiven those behind her death rumour that went viral on social media, Angela said “Yes I have. The thing is that sponsors of such do not realise that such evil campaigns usually turn out a publicity campaign for their victims. I was actually working on set when they started that rumour and suddenly my phone line became inundated with calls. A lot of people were crying and raising concern. And I told them that I was alive and kicking. That death-rumour incident made me to realise how much people loved me. It even made me more popular. The evil peddlers had only added many more years to my life. So, I don’t care about what people say about me.”
On why people put her in controversial stories, the actress said “I wish I knew the reason. All I know is that you don’t have to do any wrong to be hated; everybody must not like you. The truth about life is that if people don’t hate or criticise you, it shows that you are not important. You must be important for people to hate you and try to run you down. But the more people hate you, the more you will progress if you are nice. And for me, I don’t give a hoot about my haters as long as what I am doing is right; I don’t lose sleep over haters.”
On the craziest thing a fan did to her, Angela replied saying “It was when I travelled to the US and this fan suddenly walked up to me and kissed me. I was screaming but he just laughed it off and walked away. He was like, ‘now that I have kissed you, what can you do about it?”
