“I once collapsed because of people’s negative comments about me”- Ini Edo recounts

Nollywood Actress, Ini Edo has shared her near-death experience triggered by people’s negative comments about her.

Ini Edo revealed at the red carpet session of ‘Bad comment’ movie by a colleague, Jim Iyke that she blacked out in the car after listening to what was said about her.

Her narration was in response to a question a media personality asked her about how she handles bad comments or negative reports about her.

She said;

“I’ve had to deal with it right from when I was a teenager in this industry. Back in the day of soft sell, I remember one day driving along the road and literally all the soft sell magazines had my pictures on them. Different pictures with different stories and I fainted.

But that was then, not anymore. Over the years, I think time teaches you or makes you strong enough to understand that look, we are just here in this life to make something out of it and you will never do right in everybody’s eyes.

There will always be people who will always have negative things to say about you. I think it’s life, I’ve accepted it. Accepted it in the sense that it doesn’t bother me cuz it doesn’t define who I am.”

A blogger had earlier posted a picture of Ini Edo, alongside that of a popular Lagos monarch and governor, implying that the duo are romantically involved.

Responding to the allegations, the actress sent a warning signal to the blogger. She expressed worry over people who are quick to put a label on people without getting their facts right. She said that she has learnt to deal with narcissists since she got into the limelight but they don’t know that they could be destroying the life of others in a bid to destroy hers. 

The actress, via her Instagram page shared; “It is hard to understand or comprehend or accept that narcissists are such cold-blooded beings..people who derive pleasure in throwing labels at people without getting their facts right. 

Accusing people falsely is an attempt at destroying that person’s life. I have had to deal with this caliber of people from the minute I got into the limelight and I’ve learnt to live with it..but the truth is ..you may be destroying the lives of other people in an attempt to destroy mine.”

You choose to ignore the HUSTLE and focus on things only you imagine in your head and you sell it to gullible people like you to buy…This is not a war you want with me….Trust me.”
