Chioma Akpotha

Nigerian actress Chioma Akpotha has revealed the struggles she has faced in keeping to her Christian faith.

In an interview with JoyNews entertainment show host Becky, the Nollywood actress said, she has lost out on movie roles because of her faith.

According to her, producers and directors find she has “too many restrictions” even when they come up with “beautiful scripts” suited to her personality.

She called the conflict between faith and her movie career “challenging.”

“I feel as if I’m punishing myself. I am being restricted because I have to stay a Christian but this is what I enjoy doing”

The Nigerian would not give details of movie roles she lost out on except to say “most of those projects are high grossing projects.”

“…quite frankly it hurts!” she said on EWITHBECKS show on Joy Prime last Sunday.
