Nigerian stand-up comedian, Okechukwu Anthony Onyegbule popularly known as Okey Bakassi has revealed what he thinks about being a celebrity. He said that being a celebrity is an expensive curse as they lose their privacy totally and don’t have a life that is theirs anymore.

He said, “It comes with a curse, you lose your privacy, and until you lose your privacy, you won’t know how much it means to you. Celebrities don’t have a life that is theirs, everybody feels that entitlement to barge into your personal space, its really an expensive curse to bear honestly. When you are on this side of the boat, there are a lot of things you could just do everyday but you just make efforts to be normal…. Its so painful when people go on social media insult their elders, people that if you had the opportunity to meet one on one, you wouldn’t do it…but then again when your life has become public, people feel they are entitled to barge into your space. That’s one curse that comes with it”.
