For those of us thinking showbiz is all about the pomp and pageantry we may need to think again because movie producer, Shirley Frimpong Manso, reveals that the industry is mostly filled with fakers.
According to Shirley, most of the flashy and posh dresses, cars by these celebrities on social media are normally borrowed to keep their names floating and that everything about them is not all that rosy.
In an interview on Joy FM, the award winning producer made the shocking revelation that showbiz is not glamorous and that young persons attracted to the fame should reconsider their thoughts on venturing into showbiz.
“No, it's not…if you stay on social media too long, you will properly kill yourself. It is not that glamorous. I guess showbiz means that you properly need to make a showy. It is not as glamorous as it seems so a lot of you out there sitting around and watching all these videos on social media with people standing by some cars and driving these flashy cars; it is not that glamorous trust me.Some of them [flashy things] have not been paid for,” she stressed.
The revelation by Shirley follows a similar one by former Black Stars captain, Stephen Appiah who also revealed that most Ghanaian entertainers live fake lifestyles and that such personalities only do so to get more likes and followers on social media.
