Director General of National Centre for Women Development (NCWD), Onyeka Onwenu, is certainly not a new name in the Nigerian entertainment industry as she is one of the veterans who are still relevant in the industry.

The now NCWD boss, who started as a musician, delved in movie acting some years back and since then, has been making tremendous impact in the industry with the kind of roles she plays.

In a recent chat, Onyeka confessed that despite her wealth of talent, she is still a poor woman because intellectual properties are not protected here in Nigeria.

“I made a living out of my entertainment and I thank God for that. I am a poor woman. If I were to be in a Western country where their system is developed, I would have had so much money that I would not even know what to do with it.”

“We do not take intellectual property serious here. You can actually get a car or house loan with your intellectual property as collateral. Most of the things I have done, I have done for free. That is because I love my country.”
