Nigeria’s nollywood Actresses in the person of Ini Edo who recently clocked 40 years of age has noted that her personality and work of art made her a celebrity, not social media.

This disclosure were made known in reference to influencers who became celebrities overnight through social media an issue she addressed in her media briefing and interview with actress and filmmaker Lilian Afegbai.

In her words, she noted: “With the emergence of social media it’s earlier for a lot of people to become celebrities, we didn’t have the platform to give us celebrity status, we had work, it was our body of work so it wasn’t even about the fame at that time, it was more about being successful at the job”.

“For instance, when I came in it was mostly dominated by the light-skinned girls, there were just a few of us who were dark skinned girls so coming in from that place and trying to drive yourself to a point of acceptability, took a lot of work, then passion. Social media was not there to make people see how fly you were or how talented you were, it was the work.” She added.
