Happy birthday to Biola Adebayo from all of us at The Daily Page.
In a chat with Punch Newspaper‘s Saturday Beats, Biola told the publication she can never steal or do illegal things to live a fake lifestyle.
“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.”
She added that she can never steal to live up to celebrities lifestyle expectations.
“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 said.
