Ace actor and movie producer, Yomi Gold, received a lot of backlash from his fans recently after a rumour about him being divorced went viral. Despite the insults hurled on him, he initially refused to comment on the speculation.
In a chat with Saturday Beats, he stressed that having rumours peddling about him is part of the price he has to pay for being in the limelight.
“Of what appropriate would it be to human beings if they can’t permit me to be the ‘driver’ of my own vehicle (sic)? Why must they behave like they may be ideal? Anything can occur. The society is short to judge when they are no longer the only wearing the shoes. I determined now not to speak about it because of I personal my existence. The maximum crucial component is for me is to be alive. If something awful should take place, I could be by myself. I don’t owe each person a proof; I just need to stay my lifestyles. As time goes on, human beings will see for themselves.
“Leaving a marriage that isn’t working is more honorable than making a large number of it. If humans recognize what absolutely took place I don’t recognize what they could be pronouncing. I don’t need it for exposure; I am a very shy man or woman and a gentleman. I know I am a good guy. I don’t suppose I need to move on social media to talk approximately something,” he stated.
The actor, who recently celebrated his birthday, noted that he makes conscious efforts to always ignore negative comments about him on social media.
“I am grateful for life and for everything I have accomplished. God has made me excel and succeed in whatever I do. I am very passionate about what I do; I am grateful to my loyal fans, they are always there for me. The most important thing about life is to keep going. I am conscious of protecting my name and having more friends than enemies.
“As a public figure, stories about me will always be out there even though I try to keep some information about myself private. One of the prices to pay for being a public figure is that your stories will be out there even if you try to stop it. Somehow, some information about your personal life will still get out there.
“When people talk about me online, one of the best things I do is not to react or ignite the fire; I move on. I am just like every other person; the only difference is that I am a celebrity and I don’t allow it to get to me. The most important thing is to be happy if we deny ourselves of it, we have denied ourselves of our birthright,” he added.
