My Mum Wants Me To Act As Pastor, Not Just Bad Boy — Actor, Charles Okocha Opens Up

The famous actor opens up about what his mother wants him to do in subsequent appearances in movies.

Charles Okocha, the Nigerian actor, who is popularly known as Igwe 2Pac, says he will love to play the role of a pastor.

Okocha, who usually acts like a bad boy in movies, told Sunday Scoop, “I will love to play the role of a pastor. I was raised in a Christian family. My mother watches my movies and she sees the kind of things I do in them. She wants me to play the role of a Christian or pastor. She usually complains that I only play bad boy roles. I tell her those are the types of roles I get. So, I look forward to playing the role of a pastor.”

Okocha, who recently acquired a new home, said it was not his first.

He said, “I feel good. It is worth celebrating. Mind you, it is not my first house. I don’t come out on social media to show all my achievements. I am who I am and I want people to take me that way. I don’t have to show anybody what I am worth before they respect me. This one (new house) came on short notice. I never planned it. I just moved into the house and invited my friends. I informed people like Obi Cubana about the housewarming just two days before the event. When God blesses one, it is good to be appreciative and show the up-and-coming ones that they can make it too if they are consistent. Rome was not built in a day.”

Asked if social media had been a blessing or curse to him, Igwe 2Pac said, “Social media has been a blessing to me. I want to appreciate the movie industry that gave me a platform. It was the platform that made people recognise and acknowledge who I was, even before social media.”
