It isn’t really clear what prompted Blessing to take to twitter recently to vent her frustration over what she considered as the promiscuous and wanton ways actresses conduct themselves these days. According to the Vow and After the Vow producer, most actresses sleep around for fame, roles and for the simple reason of just getting paid. In several of her tweets, she not only stated as an opinion she did so like an expert dissecting a situation she is very much at home with:
“How desperate can one be in pursuit of fame and money? In the end, where will you end up? In hell or in heaven? Not all who call God are true. Sad!” she observed wryly. Then followed up more tersely, “ Single and married women sleeping with countless men to climb to the top! Please when you get there, what next please? Vanity, vanity, vanity Some say the competition is too stiff and must do the uncanny to stay abreast.
Please if you don’t have anything to offer, go and sell recharged cards. People now put all artistes under same umbrella. We are not respected because of some greedy, talent-less lot who flood the industry. Husbands skip a heartbeat whenever their wives are on location because of the dirt that goes on. Orgies in hotel rooms involving married couple. Acting is now the gateway to prostitution. People will do anything to have their faces on the screen because ‘market go come and true true market plenty’” she declared.
But more thought-provoking than her declarations are the intentions behind them. People have been wondering what got into Blessing.
