Some people think men foot my bills, I work for my money – Actress Sotayo Sobola

One can liken Nollywood actress, Sotayo Sobola, to a jack of all trade. The actress was once a journalist, model and dancer before she joined the make-believe world. Few years down the line, she launched her own entertainment company. Only recently did she float her own clothing line and a lipstick product.

Despite her business ventures, the actress admitted that she knows that a few people assume that men foot her bills. “The truth is that I work a lot even though I do not look like someone that works. I feel that I look like someone that just sits in a corner and people bring money to me and then I spend it lavishly. That is how I look. I am someone that can work for three weeks non-stop; I sleep at about 5 am and wake up three hours later. The only time I relax is when I am out of the country. I travel a lot. I could work for three weeks, travel out of Nigeria for about five days and when I return, I would be refreshed. The man in my life understands my personality. We have been able to manage my work schedule and we are still managing it.

“It is normal for people to say that it is men that give me money. Every successful woman hears people say things like that. Every hard working woman hears that every time but it is always good to turn a deaf ear to such side talks. I just focus on what I want to achieve, I do not listen to what anybody says and I do not let anyone distract me. Whoever makes such comments obviously does not work to earn their money. If you work hard, a man could be there to support you because nobody wants to give money to somebody whose source of income cannot be traced. I work for my money and I also get support from friends. I do not care about what people say, I just focus on my work,” she said.
