Rising actor and social media sensation, Charles Okocha has declared that he cannot appear in a pornographic movie.
The popular actor made this known in reaction to the knocks he got during the week after he shared a snippet of his recent project on his Instagram page. In the video, the actor was seen to be seemingly having aggressive sex with a lady while promising her N50,000 for her service.
Okocha noted that he cannot endorse pornography.
According to him: “There is no way I can feature in a pornographic movie or act nude because of my mother and the way I was raised. My mother supports me in everything I do but what I promised her was that I was not going to feature in such movies. That is something I would never do because of my mother. I can act crazy roles and even appear half-naked by wearing briefs but I can never be stark naked in a movie.
“People have a right to their opinion but I am not endorsing pornography in Nollywood. I portray any role that is given to me professionally and that is what makes me an actor. As long as the producers that pay me to do a job are happy with my work, then I am okay. My true fans understand that it is just make-believe and I do not see why people should be mad about it.
“Why should I promote soft pornography? I have two children – male and female. I am a responsible father. I am a realist so when I am given a job, once I am sure that it is the right thing to do, I do it very well. I see no reason why people should get worked up over something they ought not to get worked up about.
Before I put up the post, I made people know that it was from a movie scene and it is my profession so I see nothing wrong in posting it and asking people to wait till the movie is out because it is an interesting one. I see nothing wrong in what I posted because people did not see me stark naked, all they saw was an impression of me having sex aggressively with a lady. It is just make-believe”, he told Punch.
