I’m not searching for husband – Mr Macaroni’s on-screen daughter, Motunde cries out

Motunde Sogunle, an actress and fictional daughter of social media comedian, Mr Macaroni, has clarified that she is not actually looking for a husband.

The screen diva lamented because people think the character she plays in the comedy skits is a representation of her real life problems. In the skit, she often brings suitors to her father, Mr Macaroni with all of them having one problem or the other.

Speaking in an interview, Motunde, however, said the fact that people think she is searching for a partner in real life means she embody the roles so well.

She said; “My character’s humorous quest for a husband in Mr Macaroni’s skits can sometimes lead to misconceptions about my real-life relationship status. But, I take that to mean that I embody the roles I play so well. To handle such misconceptions, I try to maintain a clear distinction between my on-screen character and my personal life.

I understand that things like that are part of the entertainment industry, and I take it in stride. I often share moments from my real life on social media to show that I am not on a perpetual husband hunt. It is essential to have a good sense of humor, and not let the misconceptions affect one personally.

Acting is not just a hobby but a job, and every moment on set is always incredible. It feels amazing to be a part of Mr Macaroni’s creative team and bring those entertaining characters to life.”

The actress also talked about how social media affects the mental health of entertainers, hence the need to release positive content.

“Social media can contribute to mental health issues for those in the entertainment industry and beyond. The constant exposure to public scrutiny, criticism and comparison can be overwhelming and stressful. It is important to remember that social media often showcases the highlights of people’s lives, creating unrealistic standards and pressures.

“To curtail those negative effects, digital detoxification, media literacy, putting out positive content, among other measures can help one in finding a healthy balance between the benefits and drawbacks of social media,” she said.
