Actress and radio presenter Jacquey Nyaminde alias Wilbroda revealed how fake friends drove her into trouble.
The mother of one in an interview with Buzz Central’s Cheptoek Boyo, said when she was at the peak of her career, getting good money from the endorsements she got and sunk into alcoholism.
She said at that time, the friends she had were all celebrating her but even though she was misusing money, they could not advise or caution her.
“That time I was at the peak of my career and getting good money. I had a crew that would only talk positively about me. We would sit and drink and a lot of the time I would be the one footing the bills.”
Wilbroda said she would drink on a daily basis until one day when she decided to change her ways.
“I sat down and told myself, this is not the kind of life I want my son to grow into. I told myself I need to take a break from this kind of drinking and I had to stop.”

For two years, Wilbroda did not drink alcohol. At that period, she learnt who her true friends were.
“I took a two-year break. I did not touch alcohol. The friends disappeared. I gained true friends and I think now I am a social drinker. I take wine and you will never find me drinking every day. That is what comes with maturity. Unlike before, I can say no to a drink.”
