Actress lambastes those who make ‘poor’ people like Olajumoke Orisaguna, blue-eyed woman famous

'poor' people like Olajumoke Orisaguna, Blue-eyed woman

Nollywood’s Sylvia Oluchy has condemned the idea of creating a new reality for people who never dreamt of ever attaining fame.

Oluchy made this known in a thread criticizing how Olajumoke The Bread Seller and the Blue-eyed woman with similar backgrounds were made famous.

According to her, such fame is never sustained because they didn’t work towards it like many famous people of today.

She wrote:

“Throwing poor illiterates into the spotlight is like throwing a baby in the deep end first to teach it how to swim

“People who require fame to boost their craft eg Actors, Musicians, Politicians usually go through a long period termed “paying your dues” where they develop a thick skin and learn to tolerate all the BS that comes with being popular.

“This culture of photographers issuing out FAME as a compensation for injustice and poverty is instrincally flawed. Fame is not a reward. Fame is actually ENDURED in exchange for living your dreams. Celebrities will tell you their utopia is to keep the success and lose the fame.

“The bread seller would have been better off if TY Bello helped her raise money to start her own bakery for example.

“Now it’s the woman with the blue eyes who was called a witch by her husband. Today, I saw a beautiful photoshoot on her. Helping someone would be more beneficial if we helped them progress in things they actually do as opposed to treating fame like a proven remedy to any problem.

“I recall the breadseller who TY Bello made famous. Illiteracy & her naivety meant she couldn’t convert the sudden fame to anything substantial & there’s always someone lurking to take advantage of her new status. She later complained about how fame ripped her life apart.

“They’ll be used as poster faces for causes by people with their own agenda and then quickly forgotten. But now because they are popular, they can’t go back to their old life and can’t move forward.

“What these photographers fail to realize is that unless they are prepared to stay the course, take these people under their wing, mentor and teach them the business of monetizing their fame for nothing less than 5 years. The fame they give them solves nothing long term.

“These photographers have their hearts in the right place but the road to hell is paved with good intentions. Anybody in showbiz will tell you that sustaining fame is harder than getting it. Big brother contestants are a good example.

“Fame is HARD, don’t let the glamour on SM fool you. To sustain it, you REALLY need to WANT it. Now that we know her story, thanks to her photoshoot. Helping her grow at whatever it is she already does will be a longer lasting solution to self sufficiency than instant fame.

“Perhaps these photographers might want to scour for under appreciated talent and issue those ones fame. They will be better prepared to handle it and ready to tolerate the life upheaval because fame is actually something they desire and need desperately.

“We should help people become the best versions of themselves rather than creating a whole new reality for them. This blue eyed woman, what does she do? If she is a petty trader for example. It might be better to get her a bigger shop and give her capital to upgrade her business.”
