Veteran actress, Lola Alao has recounted her fears and worries after she contracted the dreaded COVID-19.
The role interpreter said she now sees life in a different way.
In her words: “There is a price to pay for being famous and that includes always being in the news. I know a lot of things have been said about me, some for good and some, bad. But I don’t care and I am not bothered about people’s opinions. If I know that whatever I am doing is right and if some persons can vouch for me on some of the negative news, why should I be bothered? I have always been in the news and I have grown a thick skin over time. However, if the news about me is very bad, I would endeavour to clear the air.
“Because I see life in a peculiar way, I do not regret the things I have done or what happened to me in the past. When I contracted COVID-19, the fear of leaving my children and family behind worried me. I was also worried about my adopted children in Nigeria and my foundation. I kept praying to God and told Him to spare my life for the sake of my children. I am grateful and thankful that I got a second chance to live”, she told Punch.
Sharing her thoughts on giving marriage another shot, she said: “It is a case of never say never, I can tell you ‘no’ now and another thing would happen tomorrow. As long as I cannot predict the future, then I can’t predict events (that have yet to unfold). If marriage comes, (that would be) fine, and if it does not come, I am also good (with that).”
