In a strongly-worded post, the veteran actress stated that she would not provide financial support to individuals facing health challenges resulting from such habits.
Rita emphasized the prevalence of warnings regarding the detrimental effects of smoking, stressing that despite these cautionary messages, some individuals in the industry continue to disregard the potential risks to their well-being. She specifically singled out those who engage in excessive smoking and drinking, asserting that she would not contribute any financial assistance if they encountered health issues as a consequence.
In her Instagram post, Rita Edochie highlighted the vulnerability of vital organs such as the kidney, heart, liver, and lungs, urging her colleagues to take proper care of these delicate body parts. She firmly stated that individuals playing with their organs and subsequently facing health challenges should not approach her for monetary assistance, underscoring her commitment to not providing financial support under such circumstances.
“The kidney, heart, liver, and lungs are very delicate organs in the human body and should be properly taken care of. So if any of you play with your organs, don’t come to my DM or comment section to solicit money,” she expressed.
Rita concluded her warning by referencing the explicit health warnings displayed on cigarette packets, noting the government’s advisory that smokers are more prone to premature death. With a resolute tone, she declared, “I no go give one kobo ooo,” making it clear that financial assistance would not be extended to those who ignore health warnings and compromise their well-being through destructive habits.
