​THE FIRST DAY I WAS NUDE ON SET

Hi and thank you for visiting again. I promised yesterday, in my last post, that I was going to talk about this today. You might be disappointed in me after reading this but I am just being honest and I hope you read up until the end.

The first day I was nude on set was the day I had my bath (behind closed doors) for the first time on a location! Yes! Nothing more. I am sorry if I burst your bubble but let me tell you a few personal things.

I have been accused of not being “professional”. I was told an actress should be able to act “any role”; it is the character doing what she is doing, not the actress in real life. And my question has always been; when I am done acting that role, would I be given a different body?

Many people love me, not because they know me personally but because they like the Toyo Baby character. Actors and actresses that have acted predominantly wicked roles are feared by children and some adults in real life and real time. Why? Our perception of them when we watch them is what we take to the real world.

So, my body is my body; on or off set. And some parts of my body are expected to be “private”. Someone once called me “bad market” when I said I would never act some roles. I have had to refuse offers because I asked questions and they did not agree with my terms. What will I be wearing? Hope I would not have to kiss anybody or my body be fondled?

The industry is full enough of it, I won’t add to it. It might take time, but I am committed to joining and representing a decent ‘brand’ of actors and actresses. I personally believe some things can be depicted in a movie without baring it all. 

The truth is, this world is waiting for good examples to follow. I get SEVERAL messages from people appreciating my stand for godly morals. It has not been easy, especially when I know how much money I could be making otherwise. But I refuse to sell my soul for money. And truth be told, God honours those who do it right.

My dear aspiring celeb, please do not sleep with any music producer, movie director, lecturer, ‘uncle’ or even ‘pastor’, to get favours. Stop exposing everything and/or twerking to get followers. You are of more value than that. There is more to life than fame. There is more to being happy than having money. Nothing beats peace and contentment; knowing you’re at peace with God, others, and most importantly, YOURSELF. God will make a way for you too like He did for me. Take a stand to do it right so you have no regrets later.

I am a Christian and Jesus has made me what I am. So, just in case you are not saved, and you want Jesus to clean your mess, He can and He will if you let Him. I was once really messed up. Someday I would share my story on that but Jesus came into my life and gave me a new beginning.

Are you alone, worn out, fagged out, distressed, ashamed, afraid, too lost in sin, or just confused, God sent His son Jesus to save you and redeem you. He saved me and gave me joy that NO MAN and NOTHING can take away from me. Do you want same?

It’s simple. All you need do according to Romans 10:9-10 is believe in Jesus, repent of your sins, confess Him with your mouth and just like that, you’re saved. That might be hard for someone who is used to “doing something to get something” to understand but Jesus paid. All you do is RECIEVE.

Can Juliana lead you in the sinner’s prayer?

Yes? Okay, please repeat after me:

Dear God, I thank You for loving me. I am so sorry for all my many sins. I am a sinner and ask Your forgiveness. Jesus, I believe You are the Son of God, You died to save me and rose on the third day for my justification. I accept You as my Lord and Saviour. Holy Spirit, please fill me and help me to know Jesus more. I have prayed in Jesus name, Amen!!!

Congrats. I am so elated. I hope we meet someday. When we do, please reach out to me tell me you got saved reading this post. But until then, please find a good church in your neighbourhood or fellowship on campus and tell them you have just given your heart to Jesus. Again, I am soooo happy for you. You are now God’s child and the devil has no right to you any more!

  1. I remember arguing with a friend that you won’t be bought for money and that you are different. Then I never heard or read anywhere but I felt that way for reasons I do not know. How great, you confirmed it. I really admire your self esteem. May God increased your confidence in what you stand for and believe in.
