Many people are eager for fame and will do anything to achieve it overnight even if it means risking their lives in some circumstances. But for some who already have it, managing the fame becomes a big headache and the barrage of constant pressure can sometimes be crippling.

For some of Nollywood’s finest, fans jump at the opportunity of seeing them in person and a chance for a close up picture together or an autograph. But it’s not always that such encounters go really well which has prompted Emeka Ike to open up about his experience on being an actor and celebrity:

“In fact, to tell you the truth, I sometimes regret being an actor and celebrity. I don’t have privacy.

Sometimes, people embarrass me by addressing me rudely on the streets. Some say ‘hey! O boy! How now? No be you we dey call?

So because you have become a star you dey do shakara?”

Obviously, it can be quite embarrassing but we hope with time, both fans and actors can better appreciate each other and have a more respectful interaction for the collective good of Nollywood but also as individuals.
