Actress and brand influencer, Ini Edo has recounted how she once fainted on seeing her face in different magazines whilst driving her car some years ago.

The dark-skinned beauty revealed this at the red carpet session of ‘Bad comment’ movie by colleague, Jim Iyke.

She explained that she blacked out in the car because as a teenager, the sight of her face on the covers of the softsell magazines and the negative stories that came with it took her by surprise.

Her narration was in response to a question posed by a media personality about how she handles bad comments or negative reports about her.

She said;

“I’ve had to deal with it right from when I was a teenager in this industry. Back in the day of soft sell, I remember one day driving along the road and literally all the soft sell magazines had my pictures on them. Different pictures with different stories and I fainted.

“But that was then, not anymore. Over the years, I think time teaches you or makes you strong enough to understand that look, we are just here in this life to make something out of it and you will never do right in everybody’s eyes.

“There will always be people who will always have negative things to say about you. I think it’s life, I’ve accepted it. Accepted it in the sense that it doesn’t bother me cuz it doesn’t define who I am.”
