Nollywood actress Angela Okorie has, in a recent Instagram post, shared her thoughts on the controversial topic of whether or not a woman should build a man from “ground to the top”.
The actress who was described by Vanguard newspaper in 2014 as one of the “most sought after actresses”, has stated expressed her opinion on the topic and why she doesn’t like the idea of building a man up.
Angela believes that it’s okay to support and encourage a man in an attempt to build him however, where she takes exception to it is when the woman neglects her dreams and aspirations to focus solely on building the man up.
She explained that for every success story there is of a woman building a man up, there are thousands of stories where the women end up damaged, hurt and disappointed.
For that reason, she advised women not to forget that they’re their first priority and to focus on becoming the women they dream of becoming. The actress advised that if building a man up is what a woman wants to do she should by all means do it while simultaneously building her life so that in the end, both can each grow and simultaneously build an empire together.

I don’t like it when people say You have to build a man from ground to the top, Building a man is not really the problem but forgetting ur self while building him is the problem, you must always understand that u also have some growth to do too Oh yes u can Support him You can Encourage him But don’t you ever forget that u are the first priority You have a lot of work to do on ur self Focusing on him than your self is so wrong Now Focus on the woman u planned to become, If you continue to focus on him alone You will be broken and might regret it later Cos u we’re busy building some1 else For Everyone story that was A success I can show you a thousand more Where there was a damage ,hurt, And disappointment . Some men will ask their wives not to work That he will provide everything When things start getting bad He will not understand it’s a phase That will pass He will turn around and say the woman is a witch that made him broke forgetting he practically asked her not to work, no supporting hand Blaming her for being broke Women don’t ever agree to that Women are help mate we know, But that Doesn’t mean she should kill ur self, Help him grow but don’t forget u are the first priority. U should be able to do some things on ur own too without u calling yoursweetheart all the time for help. You can build an empire together If u both are growing I don’t know who needs to hear this Cheers 🥂 to the weekend 🙏🙏
