Nollywood actor Ramsey Noah recently lamented on the discomforts his fame and popularity have been causing him, stating one of them being the fact that fans see him as an ATM machine.
The actor who recently cleared the air concerning his nationality admitted that his predicament has cost him some discomfort. In a chat with “The Sun News”, the actor said;
“I wouldn’t say it closed doors on my face. No, not exactly. But, you know, you meet lots of people who tend to appreciate you.
“Everyone sees you around, all your fans, most especially in Lagos; see you as their ATM. All their greetings have to be paid for. For instance, they will greet you ‘Hey, good morning bros, we dey hail o…’ You know you have to drop something, so it’s quite a thorn in the flesh.”
He is not the only celebrity facing that problem. Another celebrity who opened up about the discomfort fame has brought to him is comedian Basket Mouth who complained of having to make sacrifices to accommodate his celebrity status. He said;
“I have been robbed of my privacy and the freedom I had. The fact that I must be very careful with everything I say and do is a bit of a pressure.
“However, I wouldn’t trade the journey for anything. I won’t change a thing.”
