It’s A Fake Industry, Kid, Be Careful!
You know… if you have ever heard “This industry is fake”, trust me, take that and always remember it. Especially those of you trying to break into entertainment.
If you’ve wondered why I’m in it but also not really in it… it’s because I can’t be in such a world. I’m very naive… I trust people nje by default. For me, life should be simple… you say what you mean, mean what you say… when you smile with a person, it should be because you want to smile, not because you have ulterior motives, but that’s not how the entertainment industry is. So for naive little me, my position is kinda cool… one foot in to kinda give me a good view of what’s going on in there, but the rest of my body is out there with the rest of the world & that’s exactly how I like it.
It’s also important to know your position, coz that will determine how you deal with things.
Firstly, the industry is small… everyone wants to make it, so once you seem to be doing well, there will be lots of forces that will try to bring you down so they can take your spot. Be careful… Not even any of these friendships you see out there are real. People get close to you for a reason. To find out how they can tear you down.
I will tell you this… you see abo “my friend this and that” in public and on social networks? Ba jikelana FAST kabi in private… so don’t be impressed, most of what you see is really FAKE. Like the industry it’s in. This is not something new, we’ve all heard it a thousand times… I’m just reminding those who keep forgetting.
I always avoid writing such negativity… I ignore it but felt like I needed to say this, and now that I’ve said it, I hope it will mean something to someone.
It’s a fake industry, kid, be careful. Not everyone is your friend so when you make it… never forget your family because they will be there when everything and everyone else disappears.
