Death Rumor Helped my Career- Angela Okorie

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?”
