My Life With Depression – Alex Okoroji

Actress Alex Okoroji has not been seen in the ating world and news for some time now and the lovely Nollywood diva has explained her absense.


She revealed she that she has been acting, taking care of her her child and dealing with depressionat the same time.

She revealed that some people have been pissing her off telling producers that that she no longer works and has quit and she has a word of the wise for these rumour mongers.


She said: “Who said I have stopped acting to become a blogger? And I no longer live in Lagos. Hahahah. People sef and their pull me down syndrome. Just because I spent a few years away raising my child + dealing with depression… and I’m not all over the place seeking attention doesn’t mean I have dumped my first love. How can you tell a producer who saw me on ‘spider’ that I no longer act.

Didn’t we shoot last year and the year before after I moved back in 2011? Besides, I just got off a movie set with Stride Media and I’ve shot two quality movies this year admist my other creative endeavours and I’m quietly working on several other projects. I try not to chase unnecessary hype because I honestly believe in my art speaking for me….As for my blog “ALEXANDRA N’ HER NAKED THOUGHTS!” I consider it one of the many mediums to express my creativity as I hate box myself. Its not just an ordinary blog for its sake. It is a representation of my art from start to finish.

And authorship is no small feat. Whether I am acting, writing, presenting, recording voice overs or hosting events….all of it are part of the same component for me because I’m an Artist through and through and I prefer my work to speak.

I’m willing and available to work in quality productions and share my talent with my colleagues and other amazing talents within my industry. As for those who are worried that I may have left…Ha! Not a chance…Trust me Lovelies, a true Artiste never leaves their craft. You’ll definitely see a lot more of me on your screen. Kisses!‎”


  1. It seems like she was trying to do too much all at once and depression saw that and took hold. Having a career and taking care of children is hard to do by itself, but when you put them together, you can really get stressed out.

  2. My husband like yours took the blunt of it and I felt too awful to even try to make up for the grumpiness and nonexistence. You described all the feelings to a tee.
