In the latest episode of the With Chude podcast, the movie star 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.
