I’m not an irresponsible actress –Debbie Shokoya
One of the issues that surround female celebrities is the assertion that they are prone to snatch their partners.
In her own words on the reports, actress Debbie Shokoya, told Sunday Scoop, “I do not prefer to evaluate matters like this, as I do not know what happened between all parties involved. I am only able to look up what’s on the internet. But, it’s not good when people generalize problems because we’re not all cut from one cloth. If someone was involved in something, doesn’t mean that all actresses are alike.
Most of the time, men are often blamed. It is not fair to look down on these women. One of my coworkers was asking me for a date and was also trying to woo three of my coworkers. When I discovered that I was being wooed, I was surprised. If Had I accepted his offer How would I have come to know about his other women?
“Men are shrewd and I suggest women be shrewd. There’s nothing worse than actresses who take the husbands of other women. The majority of the time, they claim to not be married. It’s normal to be in love with someone one feels at ease with. However, if one happens to be an innocent victim, one’s story will be scattered. In the meantime, the woman wasn’t even aware of his marital status. Does that mean one is husband snatchers?”
Shokoya said that a lot of people just shared their accomplishments on social media, but kept their mistakes to themselves to avoid criticism. She stated, “It is true that the life of an actor isn’t so rosy as what it appears in social networks. Even motivational speakers have personal struggles. This is the reason I don’t like to boast or talk about things I don’t have. I focus more on my work and try to avoid showing off (material items).
Being me makes me more at ease. Many people post about their wealth on social media, yet they’re in the midst of the wrath of certain challenges. Some are unable to even talk about their issues with others. The majority of people share their accomplishments on social media. They aren’t willing to share their failings because they fear criticism. I wish that fans understood that actors aren’t perfect. They have both moments of joy and sadness.
“As an actor, I wouldn’t commit any irresponsible act, as my parents are responsible. I will not engage in anything that would not portray me in a positive image. In other words, I shouldn’t wear a dress just due to the fact that I’m an actor. If I’m having issues regarding certain characters, I’d discuss it with the director.”
