Doris Simeon, the Nollywood actress, has revealed why she relocated to the United States.


Simeon, who was popular in the Yoruba film industry in the early 2000s, spoke about her relocation in an interview with Kunle Afod, her colleague.

The actress revealed she left Nigeria in 2018 so she could be closer to her child.

“As many people know, my child and his father reside in America, and that’s one of the reasons I decided to relocate here,” she said.


“I left Nigeria in 2018 and I have not returned since then. I miss Nigeria a lot. The things I miss most especially are the roadside food vendors. Things like roasted yam, roasted corn, food that they hawk.

“I miss my family and friends and I also miss being on set, especially when I see actors and actresses sharing behind-the-scenes moments on their social media platforms.”

Doris was a newscaster after which she delved into acting in the early 2000s.


She landed her first job in ‘Papa Ajasco’, the Wale Adenuga family sitcom, but got her big break for her role in ‘Ghetto Dreamz’, the 2010 movie.

Simeon is a crossover actress who features in both Yoruba and English movies and has acted in over 100 films.

The actress married Daniel Ademinokan, the Nollywood filmmaker in 2008. However, the couple parted ways in 2011. They have a son.
