Nollywood actress and producer, Mary Njoku has talked about humility in Nigeria.

The movie star believes Nigerians often mistake people’s humility and honesty for weakness and foolishness and it is very sad.

According to her, they fail to accord such people the respect they deserve because they are perceived as soft.

She added that this is the reason why the humble ones bring out their inner madness from time to time.

Her words, “Nigerians don’t respect humble and honest people. They confuse humility and integrity with weakness and foolishness. Some people can make you bring out the β€˜inner madness’ Later na dem go Dey scream say Mary don change!”
