Nigerian – American actress, Yvonne Orji is proud to be a 33-year-old virgin even though she is currently playing the sex-drunk character Molly in HBO series Insecure.
In an interview with the People, the Port Harcourt-born star said she is keeping herself for marriage; she is keeping it locked.
“I wasn’t going to hide it just because I’m on TV,” the Nigerian star told People. “I’m grounded in who I am.”
And to show just how much she is dedicated to keeping her virginity, she created a clothing line to promote abstinence. “I have a clothing company called Rock Your Stance, and we sell shirts that say ‘Keeping it locked till I get that rock’,” she said, adding, “Entertainment chose me. Before any of this happened, I sat down with myself and with God. I said, ‘I know why I’m here. It’s to make you proud.’”
Yvonne Orji added that her career as an actress, adding that her parents, like most Nigerian parents, wanted her to be a doctor.
“It sounded noble,” she said. “But then I took organic chemistry and I was like, ‘Well, maybe not.’ I ended up getting my master’s degree in public health and then working in war-torn Liberia to stall from crushing my parents’ hopes and dreams.”
She continued, “’It would take me eight years to become a doctor, but give me eight years to make it in entertainment,’” she recalled telling her family. “And I’m happy to say, I did it in seven!”
