I don’t live fake life, I can afford whatever I want – Angela Okorie


Just some few days ago, another actress Dayo Amusa had mentioned that it is important as celebrities to live fake lives.

However, in a chat with Sunday Scoop, Angela said:

“For the people who live fake lives, that’s their personal decision and they should continue living that way (if it pleases them). Why would I live a fake life when I have money to lavish on myself and do whatever I want? Backbiting and envy are normal things in the movie industry. You’re welcome to a world where being fake is a routine. When we see them (people who do such), we know them.”

Okorie, who was recently involved in an online altercation with one of her followers, says she has grown a thick skin to criticisms.

“I am used to cyber bullying. Sometimes, I keep quiet. But if someone does something wrong, I have to address it. If I post something and you make a bad comment about it, or you try to shame me, I will give it back to you in the same manner,” she said.

    Celebritys are fund of living fake life

  78. This girl have what it takes to take good care of herself not every actor and actress live fake life in nollywood

  79. Yes you are so real,but don’t just use that as a medium to pride yourself over anyone, because both the rich and the poor all are created in the image of the most high God.

  80. Well said. Nowadays, fake is the new trend but if someone is real, you wouldn’t fit in. It’s bad to fake it when being real cost zero naira.

  81. Well I am not there with you to know if you live fake life or not but the only little thing I have to say is that you should live a positive life that worth emulating and never mind what people have to say about your life

  82. Whoever lives a fake life is only hurting himself/herself. When you portray what you aren’t everyone will assume you have it all and helpers won’t be able to locate you. Lucky and wise you are if you don’t portray what you aren’t.

  83. You’re very correct, living a fake life isn’t a good thing it’s a bad thing… Calling yourself what you ain’t…fake life doesn’t pay…be contented with what you’ve

  84. I love you momma you gat money cos you worked hard for it I believe you Angela okorie and I admire your strength

  85. You are entitled to make your own opinion but still I don’t support fake life because it doesn’t last for long. Some day you will be tired and be caught in the middle of the whole saga. We all still remember the story of the Ghanaian actress that give a confession about fake life and how it affected her. We should be contented with what we have and appreciate God.

  86. Maybe your idea of living fake life is just too narrowed
    Lemme assume you’re correct which for the record I know you’re wrong as even Dangote, Gates,Buffet, Carlos etc cannot still afford all they want
    Hitting on my point, fake life includes your reactions to issues, how you relate, your phonetics self, what you come out to let the world believe of you and even your family etc
    And claiming that you can afford all you need is a pointer that you are an ambassador of
    #fakelifemovement

  87. That d truth live your life to the fullest and enjoy every bit of life so don’t live fake life that not good ideal

  88. For crying out loud, keep it up, fake life is no life to live.. It will only bring you shame and hatred from people…

  89. You are right living fake or normal life is a personal thing if you have all it takes to live your normal life why make it fake, as the same time is in some peoples nature live other peoples life’s styles and live their own behind reason I don’t know

  90. I hear you girl. Live the way you are and those that will accept you will still do that rather thanks faking your life.
