Actress Nancy Isime discloses how she became a ‘people pleaser’
Nollywood actress and television host, Nancy Isime, has disclosed the trauma she had as a child made her grow up to become a people pleaser.
She made this known in a recent interview with fellow actress, Lilian Afegbai.
Isime mentioned that she grew up not getting the attention from people she often looked up to.
She said, “I don’t force myself on anybody. I used to be a people pleaser but that came from childhood trauma.
“It came from childhood trauma where you’ll be looking for attention as a child and you didn’t get it.
She further revealed that self love helped her to stop becoming a people pleaser.
“But learning to love myself and being intuitive helped me to heal from being a people pleaser,” the Blood Sisters actress added.
The ‘Will Smith action’ averted at AMVCA.
Nigerian actor Okanlawon Deyemi made a move to slap the face of Ik Osakioduwa, who served as the co-host of the recently concluded AMVCA ceremony on Saturday, May 14.
While Osakioduwa was making mockery of Nollywood stars, Deyemi Okanlawon left his seat and charged at the media personality before he was stopped by two security personnel.
Osakioduwa later told the security officers to ‘handle him with care’ before revealing that he ‘is not prepared to fight a Deyemi who has been taking karate classes’. Everyone in the audience later laughed after the tense moment was properly controlled.
It is uncertain if the segment was a ruse as the incident was never mentioned throughout the cause of the event.
However, Deyemi did not go home with any award.
Watch the segment.
