FOR fair-skinned Nollywood actress, Oge Okoye, no doubt, God has been faithful. The other of two children has joined the league of Nollywood property owners. ENCOMIUM Weekly chatted her up on her N100 million mansion at Lekki, Lagos.
You are one of the most sought after actresses in the industry, how does it feel?
It’s something really good for people to appreciate you and want you more all the time. It’s really good and I feel very great about it.
How have you been able to sustain yourself in the industry?
Being consistent, able to bring out the message rightly and passing out the information adequately.
What is the secret of your success?
I will say the secret of my success is God. He made it possible for me to be here today because without God, I cannot do anything. He is really faithful to me in everything. Also, my fans are the ones that strengthen me because if they don’t love what I do, I cannot forge ahead.
How supportive is your husband?
He’s doing well and I thank God he’s been supporting my career. He understands my kind of job. So, he’s been there for me.
You are a mother and actress, how do you cope?
It’s not been easy as a mother at the same time working. Being an actress, travelling here and there, moving all over the place for one activity or the other is not really easy though I have people who help me out like my nanny and the rest. But whenever I have the time, I make sure I spend it with them, listen to what they have to say, play with them and play my role as a mother.
How many kids do you have now?
Just two, a boy and a girl.
Any plan for more kids?
I can’t really say yes or no. But let’s leave everything to God because He’s the only one that gives and knows when to do that. I just believe God can handle it, when the time comes He will do His work.
We learnt you just completed a mansion worth N100 million, how true is it?
It’s no longer news. Hard work pays. It is hard work though it’s yet to be completed. It’s still in progress, very soon it will be completed and you will hear about it.
Where is the house located?
I can’t say, my lips are heavy now. I don’t want to comment on that for now.
Thank you very much.
