Celebrities have been known to rant about how much pressure they get from fans approaching them. However, we have not heard from the fans’ point of view. Until now. Yesterday, a Nigerian blogger Sisi Yemmie took to Twitter to narrate an ’embarrassing’ encounter with Nollywood legend, Genevieve Nnaji.
I experienced something today…I now understand why Nigerians don’t celebrate some of their celebrities. — SisiYėmmié.com (@Sisi_Yemmie) November 24, 2015.
I met Genevieve today… kai. She asked wetin I dey do, I tell am say blogger..she looked at me and said “cute” dismissively.
With Sisi Yemmie’s shared experience, several fans who’ve had similar issues with Nigerian celebs seized the opportunity to express how they’ve been snubbed or disrespected by different music and movie stars.
Fans called out Basketmouth, Banky W, Tonto Dikeh, Funmilola Aofiyebi, Desmond Elliot and others, as many told the blogger they’re familiar with Genevieve’s alleged attitude. One Twitter user wrote of her experience with Banky W.
‘Same way I asked Banky W at a VIP event that we were both invited to and he said no in the rudest way. Never again’.
