It is common among public figures around the world to employ bodyguards due to their status and the desire of some of their overzealous fans attempting to get to them, possibly for an attack or out of admiration.
A good example was an attack on Brad Pitt by a man at a movie premiere in the US.
However, Nigerian superstar actress, Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde is not bothered about this and is also not planning to get someone to be her bodyguard, at least not anytime soon like Tiwa Savage, who recently reported to have employed a bodyguard.
Though she knows the danger of going about alone and how crazy some overzealous fans may be, but going by latest revelation, she can’t just go around with bodyguards.
She admitted that fame has restricted her from doing many things she would have done herself, but noting that she is now used to such life.
“Fame has denied me a lot. I can’t stop on the way and buy anything I want. I’m like, ‘hey, give it to me’ and they will rush over, give it to me and I will zoom off,” she said recently in an interview.
“Every celebrity has this challenge,” she noted, pointing out that, “It depends on who you are and how you want to handle it.”
“I would like to go to the market and buy whatever I want, but I cannot,” Omosexy, as the sexy mother of four is fondly called, confessed, declaring that, “And I can’t go around with bodyguards.”
