Popular Nollywood actress, Queen Nwokoye, has explained why most of her colleagues run into poverty.
She blamed it on false lifestyle and trying to live up to people’s expectations as celebrities.
The ‘Chetanna’ thespian, in a chat with BroadwayAfrica TV, said,

actors want to live up to false expectations from their fans and that

money people think they make.
“Then again, it is an individual thing, it is either you are here or
you are there but the truth is a lot of people don’t make that kind of
money they think we have,” the 35-year-old quipped.
