Nigerian media personality and Big Brother Naija host, Chukwuebuka Obi-Uchendu famously known as Ebuka has given his own perception about being famous.
According to Ebuka, he never wanted to be famous like how he is today because, according to him, he understood the “necessary evil” that comes from it.
He revealed this during his appearance on Channels TV’s program, Rubbin’ Minds, which is co-hosted by reality stars Beauty Tukura and Prince Nelson.
He said that he does not really love to be famous because it brings out his lifestyle to the public and to be talked about by people which he doesn’t like.
He went further to say that he is famous because of the work he does, and that he would have chosen a career with money that comes from it than being famous if he was to be given an option.
“I have never been a fan of fame. And if you know me, I think you can tell. But I have also understood that it comes with what I do.
“I have never courted fame. I have never chased fame. I have never really sort of thrived in it. I’m not the kind of guy who is going to put our things out to be talked about. So, most times if you see me being talked about, it’s because of my work. It’s not because I did something outside of my work.
“I don’t know that I enjoyed fame or I have ever really liked it that much. I mean, it comes with its benefits, I can never deny that. But I also understand that it is a necessary evil that comes with having a career that is public.
“But if you left me with an option, I would take the career with the money that is coming with it and not be famous,” Ebuka said.
