Actress, Lilian Afegbai reveals downside of being a celebrity
Nollywood actress and entrepreneur, Lilian Afegbai, has stated that her career was the primary reason she lost a relationship.

“Omo, this celebrities status, I want to be celebrity, are you prepared because it is not easy. No be the one wey you go reach 30 years and you will say you want to jump the fence and say oh, I am depressed. It is not easy ooo.
Three weeks ago, you know say I dey do akanchawa real estate one side. I come dey close deal with one guy on the side wey buy property from my boss I dey work for. I come meet him friend who is a single guy.
You know single girls when you meet clean guys, you will just be chitchatting. I come dey ask the guy, oh are you married? He said no. Do you have kids? He said no. Are you a Christian, he said yes.
I asked him, which church do you attend? He told me Daystar, everything just dey nice and I said what God cannot do does not exist.
My own time don reach ooo, we come dey chat, you know all those secondary school calls. In two weeks, the guy don dey show me some moves.

One day, we went for dinner and he asked me why I am always saying we are shooting. He also asked what else I did.

The guy no dey call again and I felt, I should act and play hard to get. He sent me an Instagram page and asked if it was my page and I said yes, that was the last time I heard from the guy.
Yesterday, the guy come call me and said since I told him I was an actress, he doesn’t want wahala, this and that. I told the guy that I am different, it’s just a fake life and he said we should just be business partners.
