Mexican screen diva, Carmen Aub has said she would never descend low to the level of buying followers or doing other crazy stuff that others do to become popular on social media.
The Telemundo star made this known in an interaction with the media at the Intercontinental Hotel, Lagos when she visited Nigeria recently to meet fans and promote, “The Lord of the Skies,” her latest telenovela airing on DSTV.
She said, “I am proud of my followers…most people buy followers, do other things to get followers, but all the followers that I have are there because they really want to follow me and I try to at least like their comments; sometimes I answer their comments, so I get interactions. I think I do very well.”
In the new series, the beautiful actress stars as Rustilla Casillas, the young, pampered daughter of a Mexican drug lord who grows up to become a spoilt teenager due to years of having everything handed to her on a plate.
However, she grows to find out that life is not as easy as she has been made to believe under the protective wings of her powerful father.
Speaking about the new series, she said, “The Lord of the Skies is about this Mexican drug dealer and the first season is based on a book by Andres Lopez Lopez… It tells the original story and of course it is mixed with fiction but it is very close to reality.”
The actress expressed her dedication to her job, saying, “If you love what you do, it is not a job.”
Aub also expressed her excitement at being in Nigeria for the first time to enjoy the atmosphere of Africa’s most populous nation.
“I was super excited (on coming to Nigeria) and I am very thankful because you guys have been so nice, and this has been a great experience,” she stressed.
Accompanying the actress on the trip was another Mexican star, Alberto Agnesi who stars as a law enforcement agent trying to fight the overwhelming dominance of drug cartels in the country.
Also speaking at the media interaction, Agnesi expressed his love for the Nigerian people and food, especially ‘Akara’, the fried Nigerian delicacy made of grinded beans.
He equally gave a shout-out to his fans in Nigeria and other parts of Africa.
“I get a lot of DMs in my Instagram from people around here – Lagos, Nigeria and South Africa. They loved the character and it is cool,” he said.
