Since actress Halima Abubakar won the Afro Hollywood Best Actress Award in 2011, she has been soaring higher and higher.
However, despite the actress’s bodily endowments, the actress has made it known that she hates being compared with Kim Kardashian and Beyonce.
In a recent chat with YNaija, the star actress addressed the issue, talked about Nigerian blogs and the charity project she is working on.
Read excerpts below:
You are always a subject of delight to bloggers because of your frequent social media activities, how do you handle all the attention that come with it?
Bloggers love me simply because I make their jobs very easy. I am a subject who knows how to carry every one along by being myself. I am used to it now so I don’t always react to their reports. However, when I react sometimes, it is because the stories are fake or judgmental. If not, I try to respect them well.
You once told your fans to go and worship Kim Kardashian and Beyoncé, over some of their nasty comments on Instagram, do you have a thing against these two?
You see, some fans are ridiculous. If you wear a dress or something that any of these foreign celebs wear, you begin to hear comments from fans that refer to ours (what we Nigerian celebs wear) as ‘fake’, some even go as far as calling us copycat. We should not be called Copycats because it’s not as if the foreign celebs invented all the designs, they must have gotten them from somewhere too.
It appalls me how we get disrespected instead of encouragement from fans, so whenever they come to my page to vent, I direct them where to channel that to. I won’t allow any one stress me or give me negative feedback on an innocent motive. I like Beyonce and Kim but I don’t copy them, people should please respect my hustle too.
How do you manage to stay in shape and maintain your figure?
I really don’t do anything because I have gastric ulcers. All I can say is, I eat well because my health care is above anything.
Nicki Minaj’s “Anaconda” video is basically one of the best things that ever happened to big-booty and curvy girls, as against skinny girls. What do you have to say about the song, considering you are a sexy curvy lady too?
I love Nicki Minaj, but not the song and it’s lyrics. I don’t even like the video. It ridicules slim people and it should not be. Slim people are hot too. I would rather listen to a song that promotes being healthy instead of Anaconda, that song makes no sense.
Last December, you vowed to feed over a million hungry kids across the world. Could you shed more light on this charity project?
Yes I vowed to and I will fulfil it. I shall feed them in droves as long as I am alive and capable.
Although I am not rich yet, but I still help people. Charity is life. I have been in that position before so I know what it feels like to be hungry. I once begged to eat, but now that I am comfortable, I want to help others grow too.
Not long ago, singer cum writer, Etcetera, made it known how Nollywood actresses Tonto Dikeh and Halima Abubakar were best friends but fell out because of a juju priest.
