Watch| Amputee Nigerian Actress Doris Akonanya Speaks On Living With 1 Leg


Nollywood actress Doris Akonanya has said the story of Nick Vujicic inspired her to achieve success after losing a leg.

The actress said when she was amputated, she wondered how she would be able to realise her acting dreams, but after learning of Nick’s success despite the fact that the latter was born without limbs, she was motivated.

Speaking with BBC News Pidgin, the young lady said she doesn’t think less of herself and that men are the ones coming after her due to what she has been able to achieve.

In her words:

” I thought my legs would stop me from achieving my dreams and that men would stop asking me out, but the reverse is the case.”

Doris said she loves dancing and posting the videos on social media not because she has plenty of money, but because being happy prevents her from being depressed.
