The legendary film star says more respect ought to be afforded to those who work hard to become successful in life.
Iconic Nollywood actor Ramsey Nouah has shared a glaring piece of note on social media about respecting hustlers.
Nouah in an Instagram post on Wednesday, January 3, 2020, said for everyone who had it fairly easy in life without experiencing hardship, someone put in the work for them.
As such, the film director addressed people privileged enough to know success without toiling, telling them to be humble and show respect to those who ensured it was so.
“If you succeed without suffering, it is because someone have suffered for you, so drop your shoulders and respect hustlers,” he wrote.
Nouah’s post about respect for hustlers is coming on the heels of a recent interview where he talked about his life’s journey and how everything he has now was achieved through strive and hard work.
He said: “My growing up was like tasting the two sides of a coin. When I said tasting the two sides of a coin; I mean tasting being a rich man and a poor man. I grew up with my mother, and with a silver spoon, I had it all. When I began to realize that I had good things to show off, everything disappeared.
“We started from grace to grass; that has helped me a lot because it totally balanced the equation of life. It gives me confidence in all spheres. For instance, I can hang out with the enlightened or the rich. I can mingle with them very easily without any complication or complex whatsoever.
“Also, if it is the low class or poor people, I can mingle very easily with them. I can eat a fantastic dinner in a huge, expensive restaurant and I can go eat amala at a buka and I would not feel anything. I don’t care being a popular actor or a role model. I am a role model to everybody..”
