In the latest episode of the With Chude podcast, actress cum politician also disclosed that she might still become a pastor “depending on where God is taking her to”.

The 35-year-old actress said before she ventured into acting and entertainment, she had always been a “church girl” who wanted to be a minister of God.

“I’m an opportunist with this thing called acting or entertainment. But God has ordained that step already. For me, I was just swimming in a swimming pool,” she said.

“I mean, I was a church girl going to be a pastor. I was supposed to be a pastor, I still might be. Depending on where God is taking me to.”

The actress has established a name for herself in the Nigerian movie industry with a lot of recognition and awards to her credit.

Dikeh was recently picked as a running mate to Tonte Ibraye, the governorship candidate of the African Democratic Congress (ADC) in Rivers state.

The actress revealed this information in an interview with BBC News Pidgin. She further added that even if her party loses the governorship election in Rivers State, she will not return to acting.

“I don’t like movies like that again and it’s been a long time since I acted on screen, you know. I’ve acted in about two films in 10 years, I appreciate that my path started from Nollywood,

it is something that I respect, but it’s not something that has been in my life. So even after the election, it’s not something I’ll return to, but I’ll love to contribute to the industry when I get into power.” She said.
