Being famous is a punishment – Blaqbonez

Famous Nigerian Hip Hop artiste, Emeka Akumefule professionally known as Blaqbonez, has described fame as a form of punishment.

He said regular individuals who are wealthier than entertainers don’t go through the stress that celebrities go through because of fame.

Blaqbonez made the comment while having a chat with music journalist, Joey Akan on the Afrobeats Intelligence podcast.

The 27-year-old musician lamented that he can’t engage in basic activities like before and have ‘actual fun’ anymore.

Blaqbonez said, “I think fame is a punishment. Norm@l 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. Norml@ 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 craazy punishment. Other people who have way more money have a much easier life than me. I have to be hiding.”
