How I stopped some actresses from doing cosmetic surgery —Gloria Young

Published

on

Veteran actress, Gloria Young, is of the opinion that women who undergo cosmetic surgery to achieve a curvy look do so to impress others.

In an interview with Saturday Beats, she said, “They are trying to impress others. I don’t understand what they mean by ‘they are doing it for themselves’. If a woman loves herself, she will stick to what God gave to her and make the best out of it. Dress appropriately. I have actually stopped a few of my colleagues from ‘going under the knife’. It is totally wrong. It will become a habit which will be hard to stop. Also, it is money going down the drain which could be used for something else. There are many hungry people out there, yet these women are using that money to give themselves extra butt. That is their business anyway.”

Responding to a question on actresses who ‘work’ on their bodies to boost their careers, Young said, “I have always been a big person and it has never stopped me from working. I am still working on my weight because of my health. I may be getting more elderly women’s roles now but it is because I am not a small girl. In this day and age, people must realise that there are roles for everybody. But, we are in the glamour age where everyone wants to look slim.

“The camera has to like the actress, including the producers and directors. So, it may seem like they prefer slimmer people. However, one also needs to be talented to stay up there (in their career). It is not just about looks but also what one can deliver.”

Speaking on the criticisms that some entertainers have got for campaigning for politicians in the forthcoming elections, the actress said, “I really don’t want to talk about politics. I feel if I veer towards a particular side, I have a social responsibility to my fans. The only thing I can say to people who watch me and love my work is that they should get their permanent voter’s cards, and be sure of who they are voting for.”

Published

on

Nollywood actor Moses Armstrong was charged with the rape of a minor and supplying abortion drugs by a State High Court sitting in Uyo, Akwa Ibom, on Wednesday, August 10, 2022.

The four charges were read to Armstrong for the first time since his arrest on June 13. The actor pleaded not guilty to the charges.

His defence counsel Emmanuel Pantaleon reminded the court of the bail application filed on behalf of his client on July 25 and sought the leave of the court to proceed to entertain it.

However, the prosecution, assistant state counsel I.U. Robert opposed the bail application, citing relevant judicial authorities and urged the court to dismiss the bail plea, which he described as an “abuse of court process.”

After hearing from both counsels, judge Ntong Ntong upheld the defence counsel’s application, granting bail to Mr Armstrong to the sum of N5 million.

A Special Assistant to the Akwa Ibom State Governor, Moses Armstrong, was arrested in June by men of the Akwa Ibom State Police Command for allegedly defiling a 16-year-old girl.

The minor is allegedly a teenage girl whom he adopted and has been living with his family.

Armstrong was first arraigned before a Magistrate Court in Uyo on June 17, but the case was struck out after the Magistrate, Samuel Ukoima, ruled that the matter was not properly filed.

Reacting to the news of his arrest, Emeka Rollas, president of the Actors Guild of Nigeria, described the case as “a very serious one” while announcing the actor’s suspension.

“To get involved with a child as young as 16yrs is not something I and the association I do not represent, would not stand for. This is a very sad development involving a member of ours, but I wouldn’t want to comment any further on this case,” he said.

Rollas distancing himself from Armstrong’s actions, revealed that the case is being handled by the first lady of Akwa Ibom State, Martha Udom Emmanuel, through her Family Empowerment and Youth Re-Orientation Path Initiative.
