In a recent interview with Broadway Africa TV, the mother of twin boys had the following to say about how celebrities live a false life of luxury.
These were her words:
“I don’t think it is because they are being extravagant. How many people are there to begin with?
The truth of the matter is a lot of people are known faces but they are not actually making the type of money people think they make.
Then again, it is an individual thing. It is either you are here or you are there but the truth is a lot of people don’t make that kind of money they think we have. Some people think we get paid 10 million for acting (laughs). So a lot of times, actors want to live up to false expectations for their fans and that is how they get into trouble.
As far as am concerned, if you are paid in Nigeria and you want a Gucci bag and you convert your naira to dollars to go and buy it because Kim Kardashian is carrying it, it doesn’t make sense because she earns dollars.
So for me, it is not about being extravagant, everybody loves the good things of life but you have to draw a balance” – Queen Nwokoye.
That brings to mind the many times Nigerians have called out actors for not helping their colleagues when they are sick but they rather ask individuals to raise funds to help ailing Nollywood actors.
