When asked why entertainers become proud as soon as they become super stars she said artistes are human beings just like everybody else. According to her:” Every human has the ability to be proud . Sometimes people tag artistes as not being humble because they won’t be able to take their calls anymore . Artistes are also human beings. There are times when you want to take a picture with me and may be I am not looking great ,the truth is I will beg you and tell you I cannot take a picture. There is always a back end story to why we behave the way we do” she expalins.
