My mother wants me to play pastoral roles instead of ruffian boy— Igwe 2Pac

Nollywood actor, Charles Okocha, known popularly as Igwe 2Pac, has expressed his mother’s resentment towards the bad boy roles he has been playing in movies.

According to him, his mother wants him to play the role of a pastor instead.

Speaking in an interview with the media, Okocha said his mother’s calls comes as a backdrop of her faith in God and wanted him to display a godly character which will lead people to Christ.

“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,” he explained.

Touching on his wealth after recently acquiring a new home, Okocha said he was not the lousy type who always shared his success on social media but he thanked God for how far he has brought him.

“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 house-warming 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,” he added.

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 film industry that gave me a platform. It was the platform that made people recognise and acknowledge who I was, even before social media.”
