Nollywood actress, Ibinabo Fiberesima says entertainers in Nigeria give little or no attention to their health and it’s worrisome.
In an exclusive chat with Pulse on the deaths and health scares in the entertainment industry, the first female and ex-president of the Actors Guild of Nigeria says many of her colleagues don’t care much about their health until it becomes too late.
“I dare to take a leap by asserting further that research into a percentage of those who have gone for checkups this 2019 will yield shocking results. They simply don’t care until it is too late,” she says.

Fiberesima was quick to note that though she won’t condemn her colleagues for relaxing if done with moderation, a situation where such becomes a daily way of life is absolutely unacceptable.
“So imagine your average entertainer who indulges in alcohol, substance abuse, a frequent wanton sexual activity sometimes backed with enhancers and caps it off with daily late nights and sleeps less than the required hours only to rush off the very next day as soon he gets the call to work.
“On location he eats whatever he sees and drinks whatever he finds, napping in between cuts. He decides to forget the damage such a lifestyle does to his body. He decides to ignore the danger of his steadily rising Blood Pressure, which by the way is now one of the foremost youth killers.” she says.
