- Uzalo’s Nay Maps spoke about each person’s own journey and how the competition in the entertainment industry made some lose sight of that
- He said some people become so competitive, they wish bad things on others
- Adding some even turn to muti to curse others’ success
South Africans only see the glitz and the glamour of the lives of the country’s most famous people. But according to Uzalo actor Nay Maps, there is a sinister truth behind the scenes.
Nay Maps recently opened up about the dark side of the entertainment industry and the pressure placed on celebs behind the curtain.
According to Maps, the competition in the industry gets so extreme, that they even turn to muti to make sure that others don't succeed.
Briefly.co.za learned he added there’s a lot of pretending in the industry, people would be friendly when speaking to you but badmouth you to other people.
Maps then said the constant comparing to other people results in a case of identity crisis. He added normal people often wanted to be like their favourite celebs, but even these people have pressures to live a certain way.
"Other people find themselves under pressure to live like celebs, but even celebs are often under pressure to live like someone else and that needs to stop."
According to Maps, what helps him stay strong is being rooted in God. The preacher’s kid realises everyone has their own journey and when he gets to a point where he competes with someone else, he just reminds himself of that.
"It's so easy to lose track of your journey and once you wish that your life was like someone else's and you try to imitate their lives, then you end up walking out of your own lane. ", he added.
Maps is a jack of all trades, he is also a singer and song write and he said 2018 would be the year he shows love through his music, TimesLIVE reported.
