Being a celebrity in these days of social media is a curse – Comedian, Okey Bakassi

Nigerian stand-up comedian, Okechukwu Anthony Onyegbule, popularly known as Okey Bakassi has spoken about the sad realities of being a celebrity.
Bakassi who wrote on his instagram page @okeybakassi complained of how the social media has become an avenue for many critics to lash out at celebrities, having no respect for their privacy.

In his post, he said: “It comes with a lot of 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.

“It’s 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.

“I’m sure if you ask the average celebrities, in these days of social media, it’s just too much, it’s as if when social media came, we lost respects and our values.


“It’s 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.

“People hide under the cover of anonymity to do these things.

“ It’s not good, neither who we are culturally, but then again when your life has become public, people feel they are entitle to barge into your space.

“That’s one curse that comes with it.”
