“Some would get lucky and some would not. And would end up becoming a bone in the neck of the celebrity just because they have done too much for them to let them go.”
“Always appearing in their scandal list and later leading to creating problems for their marriage. I just think half of the problems of this world would be solve if we as individuals know how to control ourselves.”
“Meanwhile, the way I run into some upcoming in locations these days, dressed like upcoming prostitutes. I ask myself if it is acting opportunity they are looking for or prick.”
“That alone could even put a clause in the mind of someone who could have helped you without asking for anything if you had dressed properly.”
“School, you will not go: Audition you won’t go. Na only to dey send DMs to celebrity hand hooking up with them. ‘Idi omo elomin ma fe j’ona ko to gbon’.”
“You think any celebrity can make a star? No fam. Only God and you can make you a star. I’m just worried about these naive young girls.”
