@Ent Africa: I work a lot, even though I don’t look it –Sotayo


Nollywood actress, Sotayo Sobola,  who was once a journalist, model and dancer before she joined the make-believe world has said that she really worked hard even though many people believed that her bills are being paid men.
Sobola who recently launched her own entertainment company and also floated her own clothing line and a lipstick product said despite her business ventures, she admitted that a few people still assume that men foot her bills.
She said, “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.
