Shatta Michy has told Graphic Showbiz in a fresh interview that not being famous is the real deal and she is reaping a huge result after she slumped into oblivion in recent times.
The former girlfriend and baby mama of Dancehall act Shatta Wale said life outside showbiz has greatly provided her with serenity and boost in her personality contrary to when she was ‘all over the place’ as a celebrity.
“Honestly speaking, I didn’t know life would be like this, if I had known, I would have taken this decision a long time ago. Life on the low or outside showbiz is the real life. That is when you get to know who you really are, that is when you get to live life and not fake it or follow the bandwagon.
“It is like that is when reality sets in, it sets your mind and everything back to the basics. It is like the scale fall off your eyes and you begin to think, see and do things in a certain way.
“One of the major things living this new life has taught me is that I now know who my true friends are, I now know people who were following me those days because of the glitz and glamour that I found myself in and now that I’m not into it, they are nowhere to be found.
“It has taught me to be focused and to know that if I don’t take certain things seriously, I will be found wanting in future”, she noted.
Michy also added that the new life she is living is fun as well. “It has been fun so far, I mean I enjoy my privacy and I have peace of mind. I go about my activities without looking over my shoulder or there is no need for me to be too careful. Nothing beats peace of mind,” she disclosed.
Being in showbiz comes with drama and Michy has in one way or another found herself in some. However, in an answer to whether she missed those moments, Michy said no.
