Yvonne Orji, the sex-drunk character Molly in HBO series Insecure, is proud to be a 33-year-old virgin, even though she is currently playing the sexy role.
The Port Harcourt-born star said she is keeping herself for her husband.
“She is keeping it locked.
“I wasn’t going to hide it just because I’m on TV,” the Nigerian star told People. “I’m grounded in who I am.”
And to show just how much she is dedicated to keeping her virginity, she created a clothing line to promote abstinence. “I have a clothing company called Rock Your Stance, and we sell shirts that say ‘Keeping it locked till I get that rock’,” she said, adding, “Entertainment chose me. Before any of this happened, I sat down with myself and with God. I said, ‘I know why I’m here. It’s to make you proud.’”
Yvonne Orji went further to speak about her career as an actress, adding that her parents, like most Nigerian parents, wanted her to be a doctor.
“It sounded noble,” she said. “But then I took organic chemistry and I was like, ‘Well, maybe not.’ I ended up getting my master’s degree in public health and then working in war-torn Liberia to stall from crushing my parents’ hopes and dreams.”
She continued, “’It would take me eight years to become a doctor, but give me eight years to make it in entertainment,’” she recalled telling her family. “And I’m happy to say, I did it in seven!”
She did it, and is promoting abstinence until marriage.
Her belief has invoked social media comments with spurious comments on twitters.
Morqos said: “ Why do people think Yvonne Orji is lying about her virginity? That’s such a stupid thing to lie about.”
Morgan said “Yvonn Orji has said she’s a virgin like 100 times and y’all are just now finding out today and making a big deal about it.”
“Yvonne Orji is goals mate. Not because she’s a virgin but because she’s unashamed to speak about it & link it to her faith in this day & age,” says king woman, in her tweet.
Orji emigrated to the U.S. from Nigeria at age 6. “It was the traditional immigrant story of my parents wanting the best for us and bringing us here,” she says. But life in Maryland wasn’t always easy.
“I was bullied because I have this thick Nigerian accent,” she recalls. “My mom would say, ‘We didn’t come to America for you to be popular.’ Which is fair, but as a kid, you’re just like, it would be really nice to have this thing that everyone else has.”
Later, after graduating with a master’s degree in public health from George Washington University, Orji says she shocked her family (who had always hoped she’d be a doctor), by announcing she wanted to move to New York to pursue stand-up comedy.
R Kelly has been accused of holding six women in an abusive sex cult.
The claims, which the 50-year-old star denies, have been made by three of his ex-employees and the parents of his alleged victims.
Cheryl Mack, Kitti Jones, and Asante McGee, who worked for Kelly, claim the six women, aged 18 to 31, live in homes rented by him around Chicago and Atlanta.
Mack, Jones and McGee allege Kelly “controls every aspect of their lives: dictating what they eat, how they dress, when they bathe, when they sleep”.
They also allege that Kelly controlled the women’s “sexual encounters that he records and then shows to male friends”.
Mack, who was Kelly’s assistant, said the singer, who had a No1 in 1997 with I Believe I Can Fly, was “a master at mind control” and “a puppet master”.
One family, from Georgia, told police their daughter was being held in a “cult” by “abusive” and “controlling” Kelly.
The mother of the woman said her daughter “looked like a prisoner”, seeming “brainwashed”.
But when police tracked her down, the woman said she was “fine and did not want to be bothered with her parents”.
Kelly’s lawyer Linda Mensch said: “We can only wonder why folks would persist in defaming a great artist who loves his fans, works 24/7, and takes care of all of the people.”
Kelly was acquitted in 2008 on 14 charges of child pornography.

Reality TV host Kim Kardashian and her husband Kanye West have hired a surrogate to carry their third child, according to reports.
Kim was recently told by a doctor that it was too risky for her to carry her own child after a number of complications following her two previous births.
People Magazine and E! News, citing unidentified sources, said the couple had hired a surrogate, and TMZ said they had agreed to pay the surrogate more than $113,000 to carry a child.
“Kim and Kanye will use a surrogate to carry their third baby. They are both very excited to give their kids a sibling,” a source told People.
It was not clear whether the surrogate was already pregnant.
Mirror Celebs has contacted a representative for Kim for comment.
The reality star, 36, has spoken openly about her medical struggles during her pregnancies with daughter North, born in 2013, and son Saint, born in 2015.
In a recent episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, Kim also spoke about considering surrogacy for future children with Kanye.
And the reality gave detailed accounts on her blog about the difficulties she experienced during her two labours, and the TV show has followed her various surgeries and doctor consultations in a bid to resolve them.
“I think I always knew that surrogacy was an option, but I didn’t think it was that realistic of an option, and now I feel like that’s my reality,” Kim said in an April episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians.
The surrogacy reports come after a difficult year for the couple.
Kim was the victim of a robbery in Paris last October, in which millions of dollars’ worth of jewelry was stolen from her.
That led her to boost security measures and to take a temporary pause from public engagements and prolific social media postings.
Late last year, Kanye cancelled a December tour and was hospitalised after an apparent mental health breakdown.
The couple have embraced a more modest social media presence over the past few months, with Kim occasionally posting glimpses into their family life.
On Wednesday, the reality star launched her own solo make-up line, which sold out within hours.
The Angolan capital Luanda has knocked Hong Kong off the top spot in an annual survey by Mercer Consulting that ranks the cost of living for expatriate workers in world cities.
Lagos, the commercial capital of Nigeria is ranked 29th and is not even among the top five African cities that are very expensive.
According to Reuters, the survey found the cost of renting a two-bedroom apartment suitable for expatriates in Luanda was £4,800 ($6,055) per month, while a fast food hamburger meal priced at £11.50.
It was the second time in three years that Luanda topped the survey, which compares the costs of housing, transport and clothing in 209 cities.
While Luanda rose, all UK cities fell significantly in this year’s rankings which were released on Wednesday, with 30th-ranked London dropping 13 places from 2016.
The survey, conducted by global consulting firm Mercer, suggested that the country’s vote to leave the European Union had played a role in the drop by causing the value of sterling to fall.
For those in the market for a cheaper expatriate experience, the survey found the least expensive cities are Tunis, ranked 209th, followed by Kyrgyzstan capital Bishkek and Skopje in Macedonia.

Seven fake credit cards were found in the pockets of Dammy Krane on 1 June when he was arrested at Opa-locka Executive Airport in Miami Dade, Florida.
A report in New Miami Times said the police have now slammed a nine count felony charge at Miami Dade’s criminal court for credit card forgery and grand theft against the 23 year-old pop artist, whose real name is Oyindamola Emmanuel Johnson-Hunga.
Dammy Krane’s trouble began after he used a bogus card to book a private jet flight to Washington, D.C., police said. When the police searched him, they found seven false credit cards in his wallet, according to the police report, details of which Miami New Times published today.
Agents from the mobile-phone booking app TapJets had called police, when they found that the first card Dammy Krane tendered was bogus. The jet company told Miami-Dade Police that Krane and a partner, Chukwuebuka Ilochonwu, had booked a $10,943 trip on a jet from Opa-locka to Washington, D.C.
Krane lists a permanent U.S. address in Baltimore on the police report, according to the report by Miami New Times.
Two MDPD officers staked out the jet runway until Krane and Ilochonwu showed up. Police searched the pair and found seven cards in Krane’s pants pocket. When authorities checked the cards later, all seven had numbers on the face that didn’t match the numbers on the security strip on the back.
MDPD says Krane used one of those cards to book his flight and then gave TapJet two other fake cards when he was asked for backup cards for the travel.
His co-defendant, Ilochonwu, police soon learned, was out on bond on four other credit card fraud charges.
He’d been arrested in April on felony charges stemming from a case in Miami Beach.
Dammy Krane who is now out on bail has tried to exculpate himself from the arrest mess, blaming “agents” and assuring fans he’s innocent.
“I do not partake in fraud,” Krane says. “I do not partake in such activities. Agents booked my flights with fraudulent cards.”
“My life is all about my music, and that’s what I’m all about,” he says. “I’m sorry I got caught up in this mess.”
The Benue-born Krane rose to fame five years ago on the success of his hit single “My Dear,” He became a major player in the Afropop scene, with a quarter-million followers on Twitter and regular chart-topping hits.
