Nollywood actress and single mother of one, Liz Anjorin made the declaration in a recent interview with Saturday Beats. Her words: “As a young woman, no sugar daddy would want to invest in you without getting a baby from you. I work like a slave and I sleep in my shop in Ogba.
I don’t just sleep there for a day but for weeks. I stay in Lekki Phase One but I sleep on the bare floor in my shop for months. I bathe in a gutter, my workers would hold a cloth to cover me from the public eye and I would bathe there and I am a celebrity. This is what I do often and I work like a slave.
Aside from being an actress, I am a fashion designer; I also sell jewellery, shoes and bags. I used to travel out of the country most times to Senegal to buy goods but I cannot do that anymore because of the exchange rate.
The clothes that we used to sell for about N70,000 is now about N160,000 and nobody has such money anymore. When I travel to Senegal to buy my goods, nobody knows that I am a celebrity because I work like a slave.
If I had a sugar daddy somewhere, would I go through all this stress? I thank God that I am doing fine on my own. I have paid my dues. In fact, you cannot tell children of nowadays to sleep on the bare floor, they would not listen.
When my daughter is around, she joins me and sleeps on the bare floor and same goes for my sister, Arike. I do all these because if I decide to always go to Lekki, I may not be able to save money.
The truth of the matter is that I have paid my dues; I endure a lot even more than my age and stardom. If you work hard, God would surely reward your effort. I don’t have a sugar daddy anywhere.
If I had a sugar daddy, people would know because they would want a child from me. No man in Nigeria would invest so much in you without expecting something in return.
