LAGOS, Nigeria – Popular actress Anita Keyss has taken a swipe at fellow actors who strip it all down only to get fame. She advised such people to desist from such acts as it doesn’t make sense.
Speaking on nudity, especially in Nollywood, Anita described the act as crazy.“You don’t have to expose your body to become popular. It doesn’t make sense to me, If you believe in yourself and you know you have the talent, you don’t have to expose your body just to get fame,” she said.
She stated further that real celebrities of the likes of Omotola Jolade-Ekeinde and Genevieve Nnaji didn’t expose their bodies to become famous.
“They worked hard and it’s paying off. So I don’t think you need to expose your body just to remain relevant in the movie industry. Doing so means you don’t believe in yourself and your talent.”
Also, the actress also took time off to advise Nigerian celebrities who get carried away by adulation from their fans or allow their lifestyles to be dictated by their fans. “It is all about you doing what you feel you are comfortable with and believing in yourself,” she said.
Anita Keyss is set to release her new movie, Dry Tears, which focuses on the lifestyles of celebrities. The movie is the third major production by the actress.
