The actor added that there is pressure in the entertainment industry and that entertainers need to take time out to recharge their energy for creativity and mental health.
“I took a time out for myself. That’s one thing that many creatives don’t do enough of around the world, especially in Nigeria. There is so much pressure.
Pressure to stay relevant, pressure to create, pressure to make money, and the worst of all pressure to trend. There’s a need for creatives to take time out to reflect and revitalise their energy for their creativity to burgeon once again. People within the creative industry don’t take care of their mental health and it is a huge problem.”
