Her fellow colleagues have reacted to the demise of the young actress and Ijeoma Thomas, a Nollywood star also made it known that most actors do not pay attention to their health, hence Nollywood is recording high numbers of death in recent months.
Ijeoma Thomas has advised all entertainers and non-entertainers to take their health seriously, making their health their most priority instead of worrying about dressing nice, using the latest cars, and other luxurious lifestyles of a celebrity.
“This manner of death is becoming rampant, and I want to call on my colleagues to check their health. Everything is not about what people will see: let me do the costliest hair; let them see that I am wearing the most expensive hair; let them see that I am wearing the most expensive dress; let them see that I am driving the biggest car; what a heel? Who are you doing it to impress, people? People to see you, that’s all.”
“So I am just calling on each and every one of us to forget about those kinds of life and take much interest about our health because this kind of job we do makes us go through a lot of stress mentally, physically and spiritually. You have to go through your scripts hard, and act it out.’
“People have to take their heath serious, even people outside the industry. The number one thing you have to invest in is your health, it is very important, be you young, old, single, married, it is very important.”
