Veteran Nollywood actress, Rachel Oniga, has revealed in an interview, why she doesn’t party with her colleagues.
According to her, when one does, one is gradually inviting problem.
Rachel Oniga revealed this in an interview with Goldmyne, talked about her years in Nollywood, making friends and enemies and backstabbing in the Nigerian movie industry.
“I have no enemies and I have no friends in the industry. Do you always see me in parties or events? I also tell younger actors who are close to me to avoid keeping enemies and friends. Whenever you are at the location of a movie project, give it your best and go to your house. There is no point getting too comfortable with other actors.
“I don’t party with my colleagues. When you do that always, you are gradually inviting problems for yourself, as people are always looking for opportunities to bring others down. In most cases, they will give you the impression that they are your friends and wish you well, but they will later stab you at the back when you least expected it. I’ve experienced things in my life so I have decided to stay away from some gatherings,” she said.
Rachael Oniga was born on 23 May 1957 at Eku, a town in Delta State southern Nigeria. She began her acting career in 1993, shortly after her divorce. She worked briefly at Ascoline Nigeria Limited, a Dutch Consultant Company before her first movie titled Onome and her debut Yoruba movie was Owo Blow.
