Speaking about how being a fine girl got her her start in Nollywood, and why she's now focusing more on her music career, Angela Okorie said:

ANGELA OKORIE: I had been doing music before I started acting. I was singing in church for so many years. I started from singing when I was seven years old. And I have been singing in church for a long time before I started acting. And then I got admission into the university to study Public Admin. From there I started modeling for about ten years. From then I started acting when I followed a friend to a movie set. They needed a fine girl to play a particular role. They asked me and I said I can. I was instructed properly. That was how I started acting. So music for me has always been there. But I have always known that music is bigger than movie somehow because in music you need some kind of fund and fame to push your career. So if I had started music before acting, probably people wouldn’t have heard me. So but yeah after my acting and then I’m famous and all that days I said okay it’s time for me to do music. And that’s why I slowed down on acting. Yes, because I wanted my music to be heard.

When asked about challenges she's faced, Angela opened up about her shooting incident, and revealed that she's making a movie about it saying:

ANGELA OKORIE: It’s God… If not it wouldn’t have been easy. The movie I’m working on will tell the story; like action movie you will see it. Like when I was shot. It’s my true life story. Some people said so many things about that attack. But it was armed robbers. They attacked me somewhere at Orile on my way back from a show. They opened fire. You saw some of my pictures I posted pictures when I was been treated in hospital. My skin cut open and bullets were been removed. I will tell everything in the movie.
