young and inspiring actors an movie makers on how to make a celebrity relationship work.
The actress was one of the panelist at at the innovation warehouse, a mentorship programme for aspiring film makers and actors during the just concluded Africa International film festival in Lagos.
While answering some questions posed by the participants, one of them asked why there is high rate of divorce in celebrities marriages. In response, the actress answered that for marriages to work in entertainment industry, partners must be of the same faith.
“They must believe in you. If you’re a Christian and you marry someone who is not born again then you are on your own. Your partner needs to be stronger than you. They are the ones getting the aftermath of your own action. Choose a partner who understands entertainment. Don’t choose your fan. Personally, I don’t believe in love at first sight. Pick someone who sees your heart, your soul, someone who sees the real you and not afraid to tell you about your flaws.
“Discipline is key. Everyone wants freedom but too much freedom is bad. Be disciplined. It’s better to be an enemy to a work partner than to your family. Learn to say No! We are like nurses and doctors in the industry because we can be called upon at anytime.”
