Comedienne Afia Scwarzenegger, in a sort of open letter to fans, has warned them that life is far more difficult than the painfully choreographed events with happy endings that one often finds in Nigerian movies and telenovelas (Spanish soap operas).
According to her, one has to create their own luck to make it in life, as waiting on finding the right person who would meet all your needs happens only in the movies.
The on-air personality seems to be going through a weird phase at the moment, where she’s doing a lot of introspection and advising her followers.
In a post she made on Facebook, she went into the hardships she has faced, and how that has shaped her to be who she is. She added that adding value to yourself is more important than sitting around waiting for someone to come and do it for you.
“There’s more to life than the telenovelas we watch or the the keeping up with kardashians we imitate.” She wrote.
“Show me a successful man with no story…they all at a point in their life did odd jobs to be where they are….from president Obama, president Mahama, my daddy Despite, Kpogas furniture, Sarkodie, etc…name them…but look at the outcome of their dedications and hard work.
“It is about time that some of us spell the reality to you…yes a beautiful telenovela story of meeting a rich man and marrying you to inherit his properties do not exist, whiles waiting for prince charming get a job, a certificate, something that will make you independent.
“Men prefer women with big brains than big a**/boobs….and women prefer six cars to six packs so wakeup Akwasi Alhandro..life I said is not a telenovela…you can bleach to look like blacchyna but trust me if u dont bleach your brains….you might spend the rest of your life in that single room till you die…warming the bed of successful people ..success is not a s*xual transmitted disease so sleeping with successful men won’t make you successful…
“Start from somewhere and God will bless your small, unemployed with 2 fones doesn’t make u a big chick/dude but a big fool
“Remember Shatta Wale Was once Bandana,Samini was once a batman.
“Have a dream and work towards it, Life is not a Nigerian movie.”
