In a recent interview, Tinsel actor, Gbenro Ajibade expressed his joy of being an actor, but admitted that sometimes it came with a down side.
He talks about how crazy his female fans can get. He shares a story of what happened when a fan grabbed him in his private area.
We finished the show and I think I was trying to change back stage. I had taken off my clothes, so this girl ran to me and within a twinkle of an eye, she held my thing, my thing( pointing to his trouser). I told her don’t touch it . She said “ok, kiss me, if you don’t kiss me, I wont leave it. Kiss me, kiss me”, she screamed adding “if you don’t kiss me I won’t leave it”. I felt like I was chickening- out but that was the only thing I could do. I begged and begged.
People were there looking at me. I started begging . You know me, if it’s too much for me I will beg you. I told her I was sorry. I begged and begged her. People were starring at us.
In fact, the way she did it, the other models were wondering the kind of guts she’s got. But this girl wants to play. I begged and begged and told her, you know what, I will come back for you after the party, so that she can leave my ‘thing’ so that I can feel free . And it worked.
What do you think of this behaviour and how do you think actors/actresses can prevent such public assaults?
