Nollywood actor, Mofe Duncan, has revealed why being a celebrity is a curse.
The actor took to his Instagram account to lament about the hike in the prices of food stuffs, adding that he just bought a bunch of four plantain for 6,000 Naira.
Following the development, some social media users were skeptical and questioned his claim.
Some also accused him of making it up just because he wanted to trend and remain relevant on social media.
But the actor in a reaction complained about the scrutiny he was subjected to by social media users claiming that he lied about the price of the plantain.
He added that being a celebrity is a curse sometimes as he has to filter whatever he’s posting, and even then, it still gets dissected and discussed.
“It’s crazy though, they weren’t there o but yet they are so sure of the facts.
“Celebrities una de try sha. You marry, na lie, you breakup, na lie, you give birth, na lie, you say something, na lie, you don’t say something, na still lie (sic).
“Everything you do is questioned and dissected. You scrutinise every post you’re about to put up because you have to be sure it’s not blog worthy.
“After driving one hour to find plantain, N6000 was a small token to pay for my own happiness, yet I de lie. Being famous is a curse sometimes (sic),” he wrote.
