Popular Nigerian rapper, Blaqbonez has revealed that fame to him is like a crazy punishment while giving some insight into his life.
Popular Nigerian rapper, Emeka Akumefule, better known as Blaqbonez gives an insight about his life as he speaks on how fame is a ‘crazy punishment.’
The rapper made this known during his appearance in the latest episode of the Afrobeats Intelligence Podcast, hosted by Joey Akan.
According to Blaqbonez, they are individuals who are “normal” and wealthier than celebrities but do not experience the level of stress associated with fame.
Expressing his frustration, Blaqbonez stated that being famous in Nigeria hinders him from having genuine enjoyment.
In his words;
“I think fame is a punishment. Normal people can have all the money in the world, and drive a way bigger car than I would drive. But in traffic, everybody will leave them and focus on me. Why?
“Now, if I walk into a restaurant, everybody is on me. I can’t even do those basic things. Normal people can have 50 times my money, wear a regular T-shirt and just stroll. Nobody is checking what type of ring, or chain he is wearing or how fresh he is looking. No human being cares. They just go straight to the world to buy whatever they want. Enjoying whatever experiences.
“I can’t even go out in Nigeria to have actual fun. I must be Blaqbonez. It feels like a crazy punishment. Other people who have way more money have a much easier life than me. I have to be hiding.”
