Nollywood actress Mimi Orjiekwe has stated that acting alone cannot pay her bills.
Mimi who called out her ex Charles billion for not contributing to the upbringing of their daughter told Sunday Scoop that;
“I still have a lot to do as an actor and woman, though I am enjoying my life. If I had known better, I would have probably pursued a career in the oil and gas sector. I love acting but there is no money in it as much as in the oil sector. I have a lot of expenses; I have a baby, do charity, like to look good and have a family to support. For you to be able to do all these, you need to make a lot of money. Unfortunately, acting cannot give you much money.”
On competing with anyone in the industry;
“I am just myself. If you are successful today, I wish you the best but life is not all about competition. I only do things I love to do and it has helped me grow as an actress and individual.”
