The veteran actress made this known during an interview with Genevieve Magazine for their September edition which she also is it's cover girl. According to her, actors are doing more than just acting to add to their source of income. She, however, posted a part version of that interview on her Instagram page on Thursday, September 27, 2018, with a beautiful photo.

“Don’t be deceived by what goes on on social media. Obviously, there is something else such actors are doing, perhaps other businesses to shore up their income. The reality is that on the earning capacity of an actor in Nigeria, you cannot have that sort of lifestyle in this economy. Yes, part of our industry is to have glamour but also the other part is to have reality,” she said.

Aunty Joke as she is fondly called, has a point and we know how different celebrities have come out to talk about the lifestyles of their colleagues. For some celebs, it is wrong to lie about the source of their wealth while for others it is wrong to even show off this wealth on social media.

Vimbai wants female celebrities to stop lying about the source of their wealth to young ladies

Earlier in the year, Vimbai sparked off a conversation no one had the balls to talk about as she throws shade at some female celebrities who lie about the source of their wealth.

The former reality T.V. star turned media personality took to her Instagram page on Monday, March 19, 2018, where she sort of called out some female celebrities who show off their wealth on social media which they got from their spouse and deceive young ladies about the source.

"If your expensive handbag is a gift, that's ok. If your first luxury car was a gift from hubby that's great. If you travel in luxury courtesy of bae that's cool too. If your talent is social media, embrace it and earn off it. BUT please stop lying to young girls about how hard you have worked, and giving terrible advice about how to build this or that and how to be successful in business or have a high flying career. STOP IT!!" she wrote.

Ronke Oshodi Oke isn't happy with colleagues who show off cars, houses on social media [Video]

Actress, Ronke Ojo, also known as Oshodi-Oke, has called out her colleagues who in recent times have taken to social media to show off their new cars and houses. According to the Yoruba Nollywood actress, who made this known on her Instagram live on Thursday, June 21, 2018, it is surprising to see these actors take to social media once they buy a car (brand new or tokunbo) without checking out the condition of their homes first.

"Before you show off, first look at the condition of your home. Have you ever seen a banker flaunting his or her car on social media? You bought a car, you put it on social media. Even those that are not up to 40 years are now lying on social media that they are 40. You bought a house, you put it on social media. Why?" she said.
