Veteran Nollywood actress, Patience Ozokwor has disclosed why her colleagues beg for public assistance when they are battling illnesses.

According to the movie icon, some actors are paid well but because of the luxurious lifestyles they prefer to live in, it is difficult for them to save money for themselves, resulting to seeking public assistance when confronted with sickness.

She further highlighted that there are a lot of financial pressures on actors from family and acquaintances.

Mrs Ozokwor said this in a recent interview shared on Tiktok by KWS Nigeria.

“Some of us [actors] are paid well but before this sickness get, nobody helps you because everybody feels you’ve a lot of money. And you’re managing it [sickness] with your family. Also nobody pays you anymore when you’re on that sick bed. 

Because it’s when you’re healthy that you can be shooting movies and getting money. The illness has kept you out for a long time and the money you saved has been exhausted.

“And you know, because of the nature of our job, we are heavy-spenders. The clothes you wear matters to the world. We call it packing. The way you packaged yourself. 

The worst is that you can’t even repeat your expensive clothes. These are the things that make us spend a lot of money. And then people pounce on you, they feel you’ve a lot of money because they see your face everywhere. I know how many people that have come to this house today to ask for help.” She said.
