Nollywood actress and former president of the Actors Guild of Nigeria, Ibinabo Fiberesima has revealed the main reason people label her as the stubborn one and a rebel.
According to the mother 4 and ex-beauty queen, she’s was never ready to blend in from onset because she was born to stand out.
Ibinabo added via her Instagram post that her outspokenness got her the nickname and more.
“YOᑌ ᑕᗩᑎ’T ᗷᒪEᑎᗪ Iᑎ ᗯᕼEᑎ YOᑌ’ᖇE ᗷOᖇᑎ TO ᔕTᗩᑎᗪ OᑌT ⠀⠀
I’ve always been different. It’s something I struggled with, but eventually learned to really love about myself. Being outspoken often labeled me as the “stubborn one”, but it always felt better than being like everyone else…
One of the greatest regrets in life is being what others would want you to be, rather than being yourself. I remember trying to fit in and 𝗛𝗔𝗧𝗘𝗗 𝗜𝗧 𝗦𝗢 𝗠𝗨𝗖𝗛! It felt fake and boring so I nipped that in the bud QUICK! The majority may not like you for standing out, but the few that do will absolutely love you for it. It’s a risk, but one I don’t mind taking for being true to myself. Anyone else a “rebel” like me? 👀” she wrote on Instagram.
Kemi Filani News would recall that Ibinabo had sometime ago defended fellow actress, 22-year-old Regina Daniels who has been under blast since getting married to 59-year-old Ned Nwoko.
In defense of Daniels, Fiberesima slammed Nigerians for being hypocrites and also called them out for their unusual interest in the said marriage.
While defending Daniels as a hardworking young woman who has achieved celebrity status for herself, Fiberesima also wonders why a young adult girl’s marriage to a man she loves and has pledged to spend her life with has suddenly become a potent topic of national discourse.
