Ayo Adesanya

Popular Nigerian actress, Ayo Adesanya has said that members of the public only have the thought that thespians are rich.

She said they only have fame but not money.

She revealed that even though the film industry is big, the actors however are not as rich as the members of the public think.

However, she confessed that it is the responsibility of the actor to know how to make money from his or her fame.

While speaking during an interview on the ‘Memoir of a Naija Girl’ podcast, Adesanya said, “Many people have the notion that because Nollywood is big, practitioners are well paid.

“But, how much do we earn? We have fame, but we don’t make money. However, it is left for the actor to use that fame to get money, through brand endorsements and other avenues.”

She said, “It is very lonely being a celebrity, contrary to what people think. People think that as a celebrity, one has the whole world at one’s feet. It is actually very lonely.

“People assume that a celeb’s life is all rosy and lively. However, everything boils down to the individual and how they want to live their lives so that it doesn’t become lonely and boring.”
