As a celebrity, there is a price one must pay for fame. Screen diva, Ella Mensah whose works have fused Nollywood and Ghallywood has paid hers.
In a chat with Inside Nollywood, the Ghana- born actress who started her career in 2010 with the movie, Bed of Roses revealed what fame has robbed her of.
Hear her: ‘Fame is very expensive and if one is not very careful, it will rob you of your freedom. It has already robbed me of my freedom; some things I used to do openly now I can’t do any more in peace.
“I could remember what a fan did to me in New York when I went for an awards ceremony. A guy from nowhere just walked up to me to take a selfie. He didn’t even bother whether I was in the mood or not. It made me a bit embarrassed but at some point, I realized that I was blessed and that on the right track.
According to the Mensah, she has a soft spot for aged homeless people and her dream is to build a shelter for them in the next 10 years.
“My dream in 10 years time is to build a home for aged people who have no family and those whose families have abandoned. I love aged people. Also, the brand, Ella Mensah will be bigger and better by God’s grace.”
