According to her, she went to the market at the time and had forgotten about her newfound fame.

Silva disclosed that the market women were star-struck when they saw her in the market that they began to chase her.

Silva said, “The women had been so carried away by my scintillating performance in that TV series that when they saw me they were star-struck and started chasing me, saying they were thrilled by my performance in that movie.”

“But, you know, and just going into the market as I used to do. I had forgotten that people had watched 'Owulorojo' and so getting to the market and being chased by all the market women and me running.

"They were all saying “E ma sa. Mo like ise yin” ( Don’t run, we just like your acting). That was very interesting.”
