Popular actress, Nkechi Blessing has bemoaned the way Nigerian celebrities are underrated by Nigerians, despite the effort they put into their work.
In a video making rounds on social media, the 32-year-old actress said Nigerians need to travel abroad to see the way foreigners appreciate Nigerian actors and musicians.
According to her, Nigerians are more interested in berating their celebrities and calling them names at the slightest opportunity. Adding that they would rather shower praises on foreign celebrities than celebrate their local stars.
“Let me say this thing that has been bordering me, Nigerians you all need to travel abroad to see how they appreciate our work, how they appreciate us being an entertainer be it in the movie or music, anything entertainment but you people back home instead of celebrating people who bring smiles to your face, you rather call them yeyebrities.
“It is well but you people go on the page of international stars and praise them but once it comes to one of your own in Nigeria, you take any chance to insult, abuse, and disrespect them no wahala, the problems is in you people’s hand. I think when we change our attitude as an individual, the country will start working again. but no the hate is just too much.”
