Few days ago, Nollywood actress, Etinosa Idemudia became the topic on many social media platforms for going nude on her colleague’s Instagram live video.

Singer, MC Galaxy had a live video with his fans and Etinosa tuned in and stripped naked, she was heard warning the singer not to stop the video.

“It’s Freaky Friday. If you cut it ( the video), I will cut you in life. Is it your body? It’s my body. Is it my business, I want to exhibit my body,” she said.

The issue led to a lot of controversies as some people blamed MC Galaxy for not stopping the video, knowing that she was drunk, while some insisted that her action was intentional.

While apologizing for her mistake, Etinosa said she has moved on from the sad incidence and refuses to stay down. In an Instagram post, she writes on how holding your head up high and standing tall through your mess.

Holding Your Head Up High and Standing Tall Through Your Mess

A lot of people were shocked I was already a cover girl to a magazine granting interviews and hosting shows outside Lagos- Back to work. They did not expect me to rise and shine. At least not so soon they said. They would feel better if I hide my head in shame, lay low and disappear for the rest of my life. However, I will be a bigger disappointment to the girls who look up to me if I do not show them how they could also rise above their mistakes:

– Own your mess up

– Do not let some of the greatest weapons of failure- shame and fear keep you down… And then depression sets in… Low self-esteem and the feeling you will never be anything great comes in.

-Don’t listen to that voice in your head or that acclaimed adviser Nowamagbe who constantly drums it into your ear that you have messed up and it’s the end of the road. Those people who take joy in analysing your mess up and how it will affect you rather than discussing way forward or just minding their own business all together. Cut them off. -The proof of a strong man is not the absence of wounds but exactly how he heals and rises for the next battle. Se ogun laye ni? Yes! Ogun l’awa!! And the absence of wounds only show a child who has never been in battle.

-As casual as this sounds “I cannot come and kill myself” is one of the strongest tools of motivation against suicide and other regret related reactions. -Even a righteous man shall fall several times and rise up again. So don’t beat yourself up

From recent events, I have come to realise a lot of people look up to me. Wow. Also, a lot of people dealing with shame and rejection from family and friends as well. A lot of people who have been tagged useless and worthless. Also the black sheep of families. At first I said please I’m human go and look up to Jesus Christ but then again God uses humans. As a role model I have shown you how to fall. Now, permit me to show you how to rise again like an eagle, like the Queen you are, like the Luxurious BOSS that I am.
