According to the amputee actress, despite her physical disability, she can do everything else like an able-bodied adult.

Aside from movies, Doris Akonanya claims to get extra money on the side by taking photos and videos of herself in scant outfits for some ‘white guys’ she refers to as ‘Devotees’.

These Devotees, she claims, have a passion for amputees, therefore she sells images to them.
