In this new interview with Sunday
Scoop, she speaks on her journey to
stardom and how she became a star
without relocating to Lagos, which is considered the hub of
entertainment, Nwokoye said,
“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.”
Does that mean she is one of the said few that didn’t have to sleep with a producer to get movie roles?
‘‘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?”
Queen, who has been accused of
refusing to discuss her marital status, said stardom hasn’t changed her.
“I don’t think anybody can accuse
me of being proud. I don’t even
consider myself a star and I don’t see how someone like me can begin to act arrogantly.”
With plans to produce movies; Queen said she was grateful to God and her fans that had kept faith with her.
