Lobatan! I Cannot Steal To Satisfy My Fans, Nollywood Actress, Abiola Adebayo Cries Out

Lobatan! Nollywood actress, Abiola Adebayo, popularly known as Biola Eyin Oka, has described the society as unfairly putting so much pressure on celebrities. According to the dark-skinned actress, the society is fond of setting unrealistic standards for celebrities. In an interview with Saturday Beats, Adebayo noted that she would not be pushed to steal or do illegal deals to live a fake life.

“When I started my acting career and became famous, there were so many responsibilities for me, and I couldn’t meet up. People started seeing me as a celebrity and at the time, I didn’t even have the material things to qualify as a celebrity. At some point, I had to ask myself if I really wanted to go into the movie industry fully, bearing in mind that I had other things I was doing alongside.


“The society sets a standard for you the moment you become a celebrity. After ‘Eyin Oka’, the movie that made me famous in 2004, I found it difficult to take public buses. I didn’t even have the money to buy a car at the time so it hit me hard. I even had demands from family members and some of my neighbours; they assumed I had so much money. The pressure the society puts on celebrities is too much, I cannot fake what I am not.

“I bless God because I am not where I used to be, but I am not where I am going to yet. I have responsibilities too, and it is not like I earn as much as people think I do, but I am not poor. Some celebrities do what they are not supposed to do to make ends meet because of the high expectations of the society. Sometimes, when I am on the red carpet, they always ask me what I am wearing. I know they expect me to call the big designers; but in my mind, I always tell myself that I can’t steal to buy all these big brands.

“Sometimes, when they even ask me these questions, I don’t even answer them. Even when they ask me who designed my dress, I simply tell them it is a tailor. Even some politicians steal just to meet up with the expectations of the people,” she told Saturday Beats.

Photos: Verdict looms for man who deliberately infected over 30 women with HIV

Photos: Verdict looms for man who deliberately infected over 30 women with HIV An HIV-positive Italian man accused of intentionally infecting 30 women is set to hear the verdict today, October 27, in his trial for allegedly targeting victims for unprotected sex over a period of nearly 10 years. Under the pseudonym "Hearty Style", 33-year-old accountant Valentino Talluto seduced dozens of young women on social networks and internet dating sites, often dating several at a time. Out of 53 sexual conquests known to have taken place between 2006 -- when he discovered he was HIV positive -- and his arrest in 2015, 30 women were allegedly infected by him with the virus which damages the immune system and causes AIDS. The male companions of three of the women were also infected, as was the baby of a fourth, investigators say. Throughout the trial, which opened in March in Rome's Rebibbia prison, the women described how Talluto had wined and dined them, claiming to fa

Expect bodies in the streets of African Countries - Melinda Gates warns of the implications of Coronavirus in Africa

Melinda Gates has warned that there will be dead bodies littering the streets in African countries if the world does not act fast to curb the spread of Coronavirus. Ms Gates said this while speaking to CNN, on  the novel Coronavirus and its effects in the third world countries. She said she is worried for Africa and fears that the continent might not be able to handle the devastating effect of COVID-19. "Its going to be horrible in the developing world," she warned. “Part of  the reasons you are seeing the case numbers still do not look very bad, is because they don’t have access to many tests. “Look at what is happening in Ecuador, they are putting bodies out on the streets, you are going to see that in countries in Africa,” Mrs Gates noted. Melinda Gates, who is also co-chair of the Bill and Melinda Gates foundation, fears things will get worst for Africa once cases peak because of poor health care systems and lack of humanitarian supports.
