In other news, Nigeria’s famous author Reno Omokri has doled out some advice to people who regard themselves as celebrities on social media and live exorbitant lives.
According to him, these self-acclaimed celebrities tend to buy a Range Rover the moment they start seeing money. They later start chasing designer bags just to revamp their celebrity status. Oh yes, you will start seeing them in First Class Planes.
Reno has left a very short message for these self-acclaimed celebrities. According to him, after living larger than life and you turn broke in your old age, you shouldn’t blame your fans for not being kind when they refuse to contribute something to sustain you.
His post to them reads
”You say you are a celebrity. So you get money. First thing you buy is a Range Rover. Next are designers. Then you flying First class. No problem.
But don’t start accusing your fans of ingratitude when you become broke in your old age and they refuse to contribute”
