Funny bone fast-rising stand-up comedian, born Stanley Chibuna, better known as Funnybone, has said that celebrity and fame in Nigeria is a scam, adding that the same people who helped you to get to the top are likely to bring you down.
the comedian took to his Twitter handle @iAmFunnyBone, to expressed his fears for the Nigerian entertainment industry.
Here is what he tweeted;
“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, yet the reality is more like a silhouette. You only see it if you step aside and take a second look at yourself. (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. Everyone wants a piece of you. You pay double the price for almost everything, simply because they say you’re 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 supposed to react. Why??? You’re a public figure.
“You visit the mechanic often because people hit your car on a daily basis and you just let them go. But if by mistake you hit another man’s car, you fix without delay. Why?? They assume you’re 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 every 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.
“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 SCAM!!!!! SCAM!!!!!,” he tweeted
