Joke Silva who reacted to the way funds are raised for veteran actors, has stated that people who help sick actors shouldn’t publicize it.
The veteran actress who further revealed that she prays every day that she wouldn’t need to seek help from the public because of the humiliation other veterans have suffered, wondered why one will assist someone and also use it as a leverage for their career.Joke Silva who told Sunday Scoop that people who help sick actors shouldn’t publicize it.
“I appreciate the work and sacrifices of Baba Suwe and other ailing veterans. They have done what they enjoyed doing but they did it at the expense of their lives. I feel they are entitled to support from the public because they have given too much to society. But I don’t think it is right for you to tell the world that you helped someone.
If I come to you for help, I should not see it on the pages of newspapers. Why would you assist me and use it to give yourself some leverage? Why put me in a humiliating position?”
