Nollywood actress, producer, entrepreneur, and television personality Empress Njamah has said that the actresses and actors in Nollywood are not real friends.
Speaking in an interview Sunday Scope, Empress Njamah disclosed that she tries to be very careful with people around her and also desist from people with negative energy because she does not like negative things in her space because they break her up. She emphasized that there’s a difference between colleagues and friends.
“There are many good things I do and I am a spiritual person. I try to be very careful with the people around me. I don’t want negative things in my space because they break me down. Gone were the days when there was a genuine friendship. Nowadays, there is a difference between colleagues and friends.”
“The social media era is stirring a lot of things. It is not everything one sees on it that is true, so don’t make people your prayer points. You don’t know what that person is going through (in real life). Why don’t you create your own happiness?
“Also, don’t ask God for what you cannot handle. Not every billionaire is happy. I weep when I see a lot of things going on online. The morals that we grew up with are all gone. We need to get back to the drawing board. Social media is turning people into what they are not because they want to ‘feel among’, even if they don’t have the capacity.”
“If I ‘follow’ a person for some time and I don’t learn anything from them, then there is no need following such a person anymore. If one follows some people, one should know that one is gaining something from them. If one follows people that influence one in a negative way, what is one’s gain?
