Nollywood actress, Ibinabo Fiberesima, has said it is worrisome that Nigerian entertainers give little or no attention to their health.
Fiberesima, a former Miss Earth Nigeria, in an exclusive interview with Pulse on the death and health scare in the industry said she that many of her colleagues do not care much about their health until it becomes too late.
“I dare to take a leap by asserting that research into a percentage of those who have gone for check-ups this 2019 will yield shocking results.
“They simply do not care until it is too late; so imagine your average entertainer who indulges in alcohol, substance abuse and a frequent want on sexual activity.
“Sometimes they backed it with enhancers and caps it off with daily late and sleepless night than the required hours only to rush off the very next day as soon he or she gets the call to work.
“On location, he or she eats whatever he sees and drinks whatever he finds, napping in between cuts.
“They decide to forget the damage such a lifestyle does to their bodies
“They decide to ignore the danger of their steadily rising Blood Pressure, which by the way is now one of the foremost killers,” she said.
Fiberesima noted that though she would not condemn her colleagues for relaxing when it was done with moderation, a situation where such becomes a daily way of life which in the long run is absolutely unacceptable.
“The only issues they worry about is malaria and typhoid and even then, they resort to self-medication till it gets too late.
“The harsh truth is the same colleagues who drink and indulge with you will never bail out their buddies when they are down.
“I mean, they all knew what they were getting into ab initio, so once you’re down it is your bad luck. Everyone awaits your candlelight procession and an opportunity to drink further in honour of the fallen,” she added.
The mother of three stressed the need for entertainers to take their health seriously.
She urged her colleagues not to indulge in unhealthy activities that might pose danger to their well-being.
“My candid advice to my colleagues is that, you only have one life. Once it’s gone, it’s gone. It’s irreplaceable.
“So you owe it to yourself at least for the sake of the family you’ll leave behind to take care of yourself. No one else will do it for you.
“Without apologies, there are a few of debilitating indulgences entertainers and other people cannot do without.
“But like I always say, your health first and all these indulgences pale into insignificance when you hit the red zone,” she said.
The 46-year-old actress and pageant organiser said that entertainers should always remember their health before indulging in various activities that affect their health.
Fiberesima, an ex-president of AGN, has contributed immensely to helping colleagues in order for them to stay healthy.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) Nollywood has lost 15 of its members in the first five months of 2019.

You Don’t Need to Beat a Woman to Punish Her, Just Do These Three Things
No matter how much a man and a woman love themselves, there is still a possibility of having misunderstandings.
In fact, what keeps most relationships and marriages together is the ability to settle problems not really because there are no problems.
Women are very dramatic creatures, if you’re not creatively smart as a guy, they can make you move mad to the extent that you’d want to tear them slap. Yes! Women can be that annoying and provocative.
In today’s world, only weak and dumb men hit their women. Instead of beating a woman, there are other ways you can punish her and it will even get to her more than using violence.
Below Are The Ways You Can Punish You Woman Without Hitting Her:-
1. Taking Away Your Attention
Firstly, what is attention, being attentive is simply our way to show our partner we care and make them feel important and special, when a man doesn’t create time for their woman it hurts them.
If you’re not been caring to them anymore, or you stop giving them attention all of a sudden.
These things hurt most women and in most cases, they are the ones who will do everything to get your attention back.
2. Deny Her Some Things
This is one of the ways you can punish a woman. Denying her certain things that you normally give her for her own benefit will make her realize her mistakes.
You can decide not to give her money to do her own hair or to buy cloth, depending on what she asked you or what you normally do for her.
This is not saying that you should deny your responsibility as a man. Ensure you provide food for the family and every other thing you are expected to do as a married man.
3. Deny Her Intimacy
In any relationship, intimacy is what keeps the relationship alive. Denying your woman intimacy is another way of letting your woman know what she did was wrong.
If she really wants to be intimate with you, she will apologize and you guys will have apology sex.
These methods are more preferable when you want to punish a woman that offended you. Domestic violence is a crime against womanhood and humanity.
Don’t lay your hands on a woman when you have problems, instead use any of these methods.
Aside from all these, the best way of settling a misunderstanding is through discussion.
If your woman does something that you don’t like, sit her down and tell her what she did you don’t like it instead of you laying your hands on her.
