Veteran actress, turned Evangelist, Eucharia Anunobi in a recent interview opened up on the discrimination and challenges of being a born-again Christian.
She shared how her colleagues reacted when she gave her life to Christ. She said “ I remember years ago when I gave my life to God, my colleagues were laughing at me. ‘Your mates are busy doing aristo, your mates are busy seeing governors, your mates are busy going to the clubs in Victoria Island, Ikeja, and everywhere, you sey na church you wan go”.
She also said “They used to say that ‘something is wrong with Eucharia’. ‘Can you imagine with all her degrees, and doctorate in waiting, na to go church?’ But today, by the grace of God, where I sit they can’t sit; where I go they can’t go. I sit with governors and presidents not for aristo, and not for someone to take me to a corner of a room to sleep with me.“
Eucharia came into limelight for her role in the movie series ‘Glamour Girls‘ in 1994 and has gone on to star in over 90 movies including ‘Abuja Connection‘ and ‘Letters to a Stranger’
