In Nigeria, it is not uncommon for successful single women to be accused of getting money from men. Sometimes people find it hard to believe that a woman can be successful without any input from a man.  Angel Okorie says she has been wrongly judged due to this misconception.

In a chat with Tofarati Ige of Punch, Angela explained that she doesn’t  need a man to sponsor her because she made good money from being a model and a singer before she came into the movie industry.

She said,

It is very annoying and insulting to say that a man must sponsor me before I can travel out of the country. Before I came into the movie industry, I was a model and singer and I was making good money from that.

Even as an actress, I have appeared in a lot of films and my services are still very much in demand. I am also involved in some other things as well. For anybody to now say that I’m living off anybody is the height of being dumb.

Everything I am today is by the grace of God and my sweat. I am a very hard-working and independent person. I know what I want and I constantly go for it. I don’t need anybody to sponsor me.

Right now, I have developed a thick skin, so I hardly get bothered when some funny things are written or said about me. You should also know that many of these things are untrue and are just figments of the imagination of whoever wrote it.

I remain true to myself and I will continue doing what I know how to do best. A lot of people don’t understand that acting is make-believe so what they feel they know about me is false. I am a very homely and reserved person. Those who truly know me know what I’m capable of
