Victoria Inyama-Okri used to be a popular face in Nollywood industry, before she relocated to the United Kingdom, after getting married into the family of foremost literary personality and author of The Famished Road, Ben Okri.


In a recent interview, Victoria opened up about her marriage, motherhood and more.



“That motherhood bit eh! These children! But we thank God for them. Here, I’m their house girl (laughs) .It so annoying, but then it gives you the opportunity to be with your children and to know them more.”


“Marriage is good, marriage is great; I thank God I have an understanding husband. At least, you can see. Look at the time and I am here and he’s not screaming his head off. I wonder how many Nigerian men will be able to tolerate that.”


“Life in general is good. I’m in a Drama School and also doing Psychology and Counselling in a college. I’m just keeping the brain busy basically.”


Asked, do you still have plans to come back to Nollywood? She said; “Yes! Definitely! Definitely! That’s why I’m in Drama School, because I know that in a couple of years’ time I will want to relocate back to Nigeria. I mean, not for anything, but I believe that home is home.”


“London is great. I’m British, but there are so many things that I could be doing in Nigeria. So, what I’m doing is, I’m getting the training here so that I will be able to give back something later on in life to my country.”
