In the eyes of many, celebrities are demi-gods— people perceive them to be angels sent down to earth by God himself. Others see them as fairy godmothers and wizards capable of making things turn around for the good by the whisk of a magic wand or a snap of a finger.
We allow ourselves to forget that celebrities are no superheroes and in as many, humans as any other person who goes through all the phases of life.
Nollywood actress Yvonne Jegede says people should not feel otherwise about these celebrities because they have their own hell to quench. Rather they should seek out people they are fond of and know to influence them.
“THE OTHER DAY I SAID PEOPLE SHOULD LOOK FOR ROLE MODELS WITHIN THEIR CIRCLE OR FOLKS AND PEOPLE WENT BIZARRE ON ME. THESE PEOPLE YOU SEE ONLINE ARE HUMANS WHO HAVE ISSUES THEY ARE DEALING WITH JUST LIKE YOU.
“PROBLEMS THEY CAN’T SHARE DUE TO THE STATUS THEY HAVE ACQUIRED IN THE LINE OF DUTY BECAUSE THEY CAN’T TRUST ANYONE ANYMORE, DEMONS THEY ARE BATTLING WITH WHEN THE LIGHTS GO OUT AT NIGHT.
“LET PEOPLE YOU KNOW, PEOPLE YOU SEE EVERYDAY INFLUENCE YOU AND BE WISE IN YOUR CHOICES IN LIFE. BECAUSE THEY HAVE HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS AND MILLIONS OF FOLLOWERS DON’T MAKE THEM SUPERHEROES. #BEGUIDED”
