Ray Emodi’s Childhood

Nollywood actor Ray Emodi is from Anambra State. He is the son of Nigerian politician and former senator, Joy Emodi.

Ray Emodi calls his mother his role model. Describing his relationship with his mother, Senator Joy Emodi, Ray said:

“Senator Joy Emodi is a role model. I don’t know if she has ever said this in any interview and she has done so many interviews. But there was a point in her life, I think she was pregnant and she was in law school and she had a fashion house with people working for her; she would go to Anambra, Onitsha I think, to go and buy materials herself. She was pregnant while doing this and still made it through law school.

“When she gave birth to us she was still hustling, she tried to make it in politics which is also a saturated market. You have children, you are a woman; so when you come, they look at you as a woman and there is another man that wants the same job that you want and they might think that this other man might be more credible than you, this is the impulsive response to seeing a woman and she made it in spite of all those challenges.”
