One of the prices stars pay are the fact that they are always prone to harassments of all sorts by their teaming fans.

Tamara Eteimo has also paid dues and also bearing the price of fame. In a recent interview, she talked about how she was almost kissed by a male fan.

“I was on the set of Wale Adenuga's Super­story when suddenly this guy just came out of nowhere and put his face close to mine like he wanted to kiss me! I was like 'wow, take it easy!' but he was like 'I'm your fan.' When you're in that kind of situation you ask yourself 'what do I do? Should I shout at him because what he did was rude? But then he just wanted to talk to me because he is my fan?' I was short of words and amazed! I think that's the craziest thing so far.
The light complexioned petite actress who was also nominated for Best Supporting Actress at AMVCA in 2014 for her role in Desperate House Girls, spoke on the greatest advice she has ever got as an actor.

“When we were in the house back at NMS, Sola Fajobi came to see us one day and said, 'Humility will pave ways for you. Don't let stardom get into your head.' And so far, that has been my watchword. And again, Mr. Linus, Stephanie Okereke-Linus' husband once came to visit us and advised, 'put God first in whatever you do and the rest will fall into place. Do your best and leave the rest for God.' Those have been my watchwords. Humility is also very important and of course, God first and love what you do; that's what my mother will tell you,” she told the Sun Newspaper.
