Don’t be fooled by everything you see on social media, especially on Instagram. Most people would only share their best moments in life on their Instagram feed, stories and reels. We’ve all been conditioned to believe that it’s not okay to share your struggles on a social platform as you will be deemed as pathetic, whiny, or even asking for attention which is not at all the case.
With that being said, even sharing your best moments could also get you the same reaction. If you’re famous, some might even speculate that you’re living a fake life. Some netizens even believe that certain Malaysian celebrities aren’t rich enough to live a luxurious life and that they’re actually being sponsored by someone else. This actor has apparently heard those rumours about him one too many times.
Other than acting, Malaysian actor Nazim Othman is also known to post photos and videos on his Instagram page of his travels and fun activities while he’s at these beautiful locations. Not all that different from any other famous celebrities as they also post not only about their latest projects but as well as their expensive holidays at breathtaking destinations. If you can afford it, go for it.
But for some reason, the 37-year-old got netizens speculating just how much money he makes as an entertainer and if he’s actually being sponsored or supported by a mysterious rich VIP. The rumours have apparently been spreading online for quite some time now but the Johor-born actor took the time to address a few things.
According to MediaHiburan, the “Sepi Tanpa Cinta” star is not all that surprised by the rumours and speculations. “It’s nothing new and of course all the things they’re saying are not true. I’m not surprised by the rumours as it’s been 6 or 7 years now. There is no rich VIP supporting me. I support myself,” said the actor. The former “Gempak Superstar 2016” contestant clarified that the holiday destinations he’s been to are mostly for work-related purposes.
“If you see me living a luxurious life, that’s just [market] positioning. Nazim Othman is not just an actor but a brand,” he added. Nazim further elaborated that as a celebrity, he works closely with several brands and companies to promote their products and services by trying them out himself and that includes traveling to popular holiday destinations.
