I don't have attitude problem, I only snub people I don’t know – Chioma Akpotha

Nollywood actress, Chioma Akpotha, has revealed that attending a girls only secondary school affected her relationship with men.

Speaking with Sunday Scoop, the actress admitted that a lot of people think she had an attitude problem.
She said , “I am aware that people think I am a snob, but I am actually a shy person. My job demands that I should abandon who I am . It used to be even worse for me because I went to a single - sex school ; so , relating to guys was difficult for me.

However , I am adjusting now because of acting.”

According to Akpotha, she tries as much as possible to protect herself and that gives people the impression that she is a snob.

“When you meet me newly , the first impression you get is that I am cold. But I am only trying to protect myself from people I don’t know.

“ If I am in a room and I know everyone there , I will be very comfortable and playful . But if I don’t know anyone , I will be cold. I am not trying to blow my trumpet ; I am just saying that I need to know you to be comfortable with you,” she said.

Despite starting acting at the age of 17 , she claimed that she did not indulge in drinking or smoking like some of her peers.

She stated , “The way my mother raised us , especially as her first daughter , there was no way I would have lived a wayward life.

My late mother would have been a solider if she didn ’t have a job . In Igboland , they pay so much attention to the first daughter because she must be an example to the younger ones. Also , I am allergic to smoke and many other things. I act stupidly whenever I am high , which is not good for someone like me in public because I like to conduct myself well. I had friends who questioned why I did not smoke or drink but if you know who you are , you wouldn't succumb to peer pressure.

However , I am not saying the fact that I don ’t smoke or drink makes me an extraordinary being . ”
