Don’t wait for anyone to love you in Nollywood, love and help yourself – Yul Edochie
A lot of news have been coming from the Nollywood industry in lately and it’s been all about fake love and backstabbing.
Just after Kevin Ikeduba started the conversation, AY comedian jumped on it, sharing his thought as a young and growing actor in the industry.
Well, Nollywood actor and politician, Yul Edochie is the latest to share his thought as to the regard of “love in Nollywood.”
In a post he made on Twitter, Yul Edochie Tweeted, ‘they say there’s no love in Nollywood. I laugh. Brethren there’s no love anywhere, not only in Nollywood. The world is tough, it’s a jungle out here. My advice: Don’t wait for anyone to love you, love yourself, help yourself. Work hard, pray & do what’s right in the sight of God.’
In a different vein, Nollywood actress, Dayo Amusa has given us reasons why actors/celebrities should live fake lives on social media.
Speaking with the Punch, the actress initiated that the Nollywood profession is a make-believe art, so nothing is real about them.
Giving an illustration of how she is in her home and what she depicts on social media, the actress says she wouldn’t want to disappoint her fans.
You have to brand yourself and make people see that you can promote their products well through the lifestyle you depict. If that is what people mean by fake life then it is fine. As an artiste, we live in a make-believe world which means that 80 per cent of the things you see us do on screen and even on social media are make-believe.
It is totally different from my personality. I might be at home and choose to tie a piece of cloth round my waist and drink garri. But if I would go on social media, I would not want to do that because some of my fans would be disappointed.
I am not advising young women to pretend to be who they are not. What I am saying is that as an artiste, we need to ‘show’ for the business to grow. I am a very realistic person and I do not see myself as one of those fake ones.
