Destiny Etiko is not married, and she has stated that people should stop equating her success with men because she works extremely hard and receives several brand ambassadorial deals.


“It’s ironic because I work for money and get good endorsements.” If it is simple for men to give money to one another, then go and collect money from men. I work, I make money, and some people like me.
“I recently signed an endorsement agreement with a Chinese company that sells sanitary pads and baby diapers.”
People will say that if I achieve something tomorrow, it was given to me by a man.
Allow them to continue speaking. Even if I don’t achieve anything, the same people will say that despite all of the films I’ve been in, I haven’t done anything for myself. I’m not going to take it seriously.”

What You May Not Know About Destiny Etiko

  • Etiko described in an interview, that after registering with the Actors Guild of Nigeria she ventured into the Nigerian movie industry commonly known as Nollywood in 2011 and described her experience then as a difficult one because she had to combine her acting career with her school requirements as she was still a student at the time.
  • Destiny Etiko revealed in an interview that her mother was once active in Nollywood and was the one who paved the way for her. “In 2004, my mother, Eucharia Etiko, began acting. She did not play major roles, and her acting career lasted only three and a half years because it was difficult for her to work on set and then return home at night to care for her family. “Whenever we were on vacation, my mother would ask me to follow her and hold her bag whenever she was shooting,” she continued. I followed her three times and appeared in a few cameo roles. As an adult, I had minor roles as well, but I finally got a better role in 2012.

    2015 was my breakthrough year as I started receiving regular calls from people who wanted to feature me in their films.”

  • “Growing up was not easy,” she added. My father was a successful headmaster, and at one point, he worked as a treasurer for a company where he was accused of theft after the money he was asked to take to the bank was stolen by armed robbers who attacked him on the way. My father was forced to pay for money he never received. It was a problem because we had to move from our flat to a ‘public’ house.
    “My mother had stopped acting, and we had begun to live off the proceeds of the shop my father had opened for her,” she recently stated in an interview.
