Popular media personality and BBNaija host Ebuka Obi-Uchendu has recently opened up on his thoughts on Fame.
In a recent appearance with Channel’s Rubbin Minds, co-hosted by Beauty Tukura and Prince Nelson, Ebuka revealed that Contrary to what many may think, that he never wanted to be famous.
He shared his perspective on what comes with fame and the implications of being a public figure.
The BBNaija host declared that he never actively pursued fame and does not really like being known.
While appreciating the perks of being a celebrity, Ebuka indicated that if given the opportunity, he would value his job and the financial gains it brings over the trappings of fame.
In his words:
“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.”
