Nollywood actress and filmmaker, Toyin Abraham has urged her fans to stop using other people’s success to measure their level of achievements in life.
The movie star made this known via her Instagram page on Tuesday. April 6, 2021.
“Listen my darling, a lot of people are better than you and me, and you and I are also better than some other people. So, stop looking at other people’s success to measure your own,” she wrote.
“If your today is better than your yesterday, you’re on the right path and even if it feels like your yesterday is better than today, don’t give up! restrategize if necessary, work hard, work smart, do more and keep praying. A lot of progress is lost in comparison. So, don’t stop pushing. You’re absolutely doing well.”
TheNewsGuru recalls that Abraham earlier in the year said women in Nollywood make money legitimately.
In her words: “I saw the social media post made by respected rapper, Ruggedman about women making more money and doing well, better than men. I read between the lines and saw what Ruggedman implied. It is a little bit sad that many people on social media leeched on it with many derogatory comments about women especially those of us in Nollywood. It is important that I put this out there that many women make money and make good money legitimately. I know actresses who charge two million, three million and five million in this Nollywood.”
