Nollywood actress, Dayo Amusa has given the reason why it is quite important to live fake lifestyles as actors.
The actress, who doubles as a singer, in a recent interview with the The Punch, stated that there was really nothing wrong with it that since actors are public figures and they need to portray themselves as rich to attract endorsements.
“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.” She said
