Piece of my mind.. I FEAR!!! oh yes I fear. I fear because this whole FAME thingy is a SCAM. It is a scam cause you enjoy it, feel fly but yet the reality is more like a silhouette. You only see it if you step aside and take a second look at your self. (That's if you ever remember)
Same people who cheer will boo. same people you struggle to support will turn around and stab your back.the moment something goes wrong they begin to ask.. 'wetin him take all him money do sef'. FAME!!! the expectation is usually high. Every one wants a piece of you. You pay double the price for almost everything, simply because they say your a celeb.
Your whole life and privacy sown to the wind. People piss you off and annoy you, but you play mute or walk away because you ain't suppose to react. Why??? Your a public figure.
You visit the mechanic often cause people hit your car on a daily and you just let them go.but you if by mistake you hit another man's car you fix without delay. Why?? They assume your loaded and can afford it.
Expectations on a steady rise. Yet the industry, I mean entertainment industry keep increasing in number but not STRUCTURE.
NO be everybody artist go blow like psquare.. and no be every comedian go make am like Ali Baba. and not every actor will be comfortable as Rmd. Even if it were meant to be so, the industry offers little or no structure.
I recall having a convo sometime this year in largo, maryland. dude said Hollywood actor Will Smith got paid millions of dollars for the rerun of FRESH PRINCE OF BEL AIR.. for a while I paused. I was seven when that show aired. But actors still get paid for that same material. Bill Cosby earned even more for his specials and rerun.
Our immediate audience and viewer's here in Nigeria according to the late Ola Rotimi is wait and take orientated. People judge you like they own your life. Why?? YOUR A CELEB
