Veteran filmmaker Saidi Balogun has said that celebrities are being pressured to life fake lives by their fans.
According to the respected actor, many celebrities involve themselves in all sorts of unacceptable things just to keep up a good appearance.
He added that the only thing Nollywood stars owe their fans is to always produce movies that address pressing issues in the society.
“It is always better to be yourself. I am myself, I don’t believe in the saying that you are addressed the way you are dressed. I believe that people should be judged based on their intellectual prowess and not by their appearance. I can ride okada from Lagos to Ibadan. I believe in doing what makes me happy.
“The pressure people put on celebrities can push some of them to get involved in some deals that they are not supposed to do. They force them to live fake lives.”
