Published

on

Actress, Angela Okorie, has said that the country’s entertainment industry is filled with evil people.

Okorie, who has been having a running battle with her colleague, Zubby Michael, stated that she would soon reveal all that transpired between them.

In an interview with Saturday Beats, she said, “Zubby did me evil, and he has done it many times. I am going to spill it all soon, so that people can know. A lot of things have been happening in the industry, and if God should open your eyes to see them, you will be shocked. That is why I keep telling people to pray and ask God to open their eyes to see the things happening around them; so they can know who is with them and who is against them.

“We keep hearing of many people dying from one sickness or another. But, most of those sicknesses are actually not the kind that should kill people quickly. But in recent times, if someone mentions that they are sick, before long, they would have died.”

Okorie added that she only depended on God for her protection. She said, “I am protected by God Almighty.”

She also stated that she was aware that some of the people around her who acted as friends had wicked intentions towards her. She said, “Recently, a lot has been happening, and God has been revealing a lot of evil people that have been around me for a long time. Mind you, I have been poisoned before, but because my mission on earth is not done, God won’t let them kill me. Nollywood is a place where people come to showcase their talents, but evil people have turned it to their coven. There are a lot of things that they are doing that are taking innocent lives.”
