Speaking in an exclusive interview with NEWS-ONE, Doris who is popularly called Maafya among her friends said she is a business-minded person and liked to do everything lawfully in business to make money.
Though sex is another form of trade or business for some women in some parts of the world, she thinks otherwise.
Hear her: “Sex is a normal thing which is attached in our daily life. So I don’t see why I should sex for money.
So all my ladies out there, my advice for you is; life is full of turns and upside downs but that shouldn’t prompt you to do anything which is not of God. Worldly things are all vanities. Be content with what you have, be prayerful and be a hard working person. With God all things are possible.”
Doris is a model and an actress. She used to model at Rony Modeling Agency until she started acting last year.
Her first movie was ‘Snake Under Grass’ and has since featured in others including ‘Tears Of A Smile’, ‘Single & Married’, ‘Bloody Stains’ and ‘Letters To My mum’.
The series she featured in were ‘Wofa K’, ‘Afia Schwarzenegger’ and ‘Bema Nkwan’, which is not yet out. She looks up to top actresses Yvonne Okoro, Luckie Lawson and Nadia Buari.
She attended Presbyterian Junior High at Michel Camp and continued at Akumadan Senior High School in the Brong Ahafo Region.

Interesting; so what can’t you do for money?
