In a lengthy post on Instagram, the actress mentioned that both male and female actors in the industry engage in vile acts like gossip, envy and hatred.

She added that the actors never truly have each other’s backs and all they do is act to the public on social media.

She wrote: “My industry, I can’t comprehend! Gossip, Envy, Faux, Backstabbing & Biting… the list goes on. Unfortunately, men are not left out. What a shame!

We never truly support our own, we’re just friends when it suits. How well we’re perfect deceiving our fans that’s why we are actors. Can I just hint Y’all that we are just colleagues in some s--t competition that no one understands, unfortunately not only 2 can play the game, but hundreds can play the role.

“But then, why can’t we all understand that we are all different, unique in different ways, aspiring to be more successful. Have you ever come to terms that fingers are never equal? Be grateful for what you have and stop seeking someone else’s downfall, or is the character included in the script? 

“Oh yes, we get along with some, yet we are mindful of our utterances because all they wanna know is you. Then we act for the gram where we seek validation for our not so real relationships, problems start when you refuse to let them into your business, you become a rival and a threat. Boom, they start rewriting the script and when they’re done destroying you, they move to the next gullible victim. Damn, we are professionals in this field. Trust me.

“What about the motivational writers. The script gets changed every second, at least to suit them. The victim-players, awon rumour mongers. Don’t be fooled,  watch, learn, get entertained & move on. We are all acting. 20 years of entertainment, different roles, same game. Trust me when I say, the game is not for a leaner, you gotta to be rooted. It’s unexplainable.

“Don’t be fooled our industry is a make-believe world. Keep ur circle small & keep ur s--t to yourself. If u know, u know. Straight from the heart.”
