I have 50 Children, says Hilda Dokubo

TVC E. Hilda Dokubo is a Nigerian film actress and youth advocate who once served as

special adviser on youth affairs to Peter Odili, a former governor of rivers state. She made her screen debut during her youth service in 1992, she has featured in so many films and won many awards  nominations.


In a recent interview with Sunday Scoop she spoke of her endeavors, marriage and denied that she has left acting. She also revealed what she meant by having 50 children

Here is what she said:

“I do this through training. I have 50 kids who are not my biological children. I have three biological children, but I’ve adopted 50 others. These children need support and I can give them that. What I do is pay their school fees, buy them clothes and give them food. I also help them find homes.”

“Acting is like my second life. If you say I left acting , it is like saying that I died. What happened was I felt like giving back to the society that has loved me so much.  I chose to go back to work with communities, see and feel like real people. I’m not done doing community work, but this is my time to come back and share those experiences in my work. I never left Nollywood, it was just a small break which was worthwhile.”

On reconciling with her husband, Karo Mrakpor  after a long separation:

“Everything in life has stages and time. If I say I’m a Christian and love God, then I should be able to live a life that Christ would be proud of. It doesn’t matter who is right or wrong in a relationship.  We did it for ourselves, our children, others, but most importantly for God.”
