My friend and I met with DAMOLA Olatunji (Yoruba actor) at a hotel in OYO. We were having a nice time. I did not even noticed until my guy told me. We did not even acted as if we know him. We ignored him for almost two hours we were sitting together at that hotel bar. Most of these celebrities are proud so the best thing is to ignore them. For me sha I trip for anybody even if u are the president, bros I hate embarrassment.

When I worked at Paramount Pictures in Hollywood I had a golf cart that I drove around the lot to my appointments. One day I got asked for a lift by Val Kilmer. I don’t think I breathe for the three minutes he rode with me.

I met many actors and actresses on that job.

I also played drums in a reggae band in SoCal in the 90s. We opened for many international stars like Yellowman, Israel Vibrations. The personal best for me was opening for Burning Spear. Me on the same stage with Mr. Winston Rodney was a personal best.

I recall over a decade ago, when my friend, a nollywood producer (wasn't producing then tho), asked me to bring a phone to show Tonto Dike who wanted to buy a phone and whom he said he had already informed. I worked for a mobile phone company at the time.

So I hurried down to their movie location on my way back from work and he took me to where she was. She sat in a car with a certain guy whom I learnt she was dating at the time. Brothers and sisters, after I smiled courteously and handed her the phone, she just held it, turned it back, front and handed it over to me. No questions, no comments and with one kind look on her face.

The way I warned my friend enh... "Never you call me for this kind of nonsense! angry..." grin He begged me, explaining that she was in bad mood.. issues with her boyfriend etc.

I have had a few experiences but this was the first to come to mind.

Shalom.

I've been on two movie sets when I was much younger. I 'worked' with Tony Umez, Chioma Chukwuka, Clem Ohameze (crying is effortless for that man) and some other actors I can't recall


Chioma Chukwuka (Akpotha) is a very very cool lady to be with. She bought me mangoes, loves making jokes and treated me quite well all through the days I was on set. She won't recognize me now though sad


I no be celeb person sha. Only people I fit trip for in this Life na Eminem, Cristiano Ronaldo or Lionel Messi.

Modified: It was nice seeing a replay of one of the movies three years ago on Africa Magic... I come dey puff like celeb(meanwhile money wey I get for my people as per kid actor no reach 20K that year)...

Life sha.

Ramsey Noah...I was 8 or 9 years old at the time, he happened to be at the venue of my uncle's wedding. He was such a chill guy.

Smiled at us a lot, asked our names and what class we were in, real chill guy and his smile is just as great in reality, as it is in the movies

This happened in sapele, right? Precisely orhoro road? Abi?

Hmmm.

Most of mine involve professional footballers.

1. Entered a plane where Genevieve was sitting in first class. I was being a bit loud as I boarded so she was looking up to see who was coming. We made eye contact and I recognized her. Wasn't going to speak to her as I wasn't a fan but she quickly looked away and that annoyed me and I have disliked her since.

2. I have shaken hands with Gambia's ex president, Yahya Jammeh, and had a brief chat with him.

3. When I was still an artist I performed at the same event as Alvin Slaughter. Jerry Omole was also there.

4. I was at the gym using one of the leg machines and there was a vaguely familiar guy next to me using a similar one. As he was leaving I observed he was a Gambian national team player. I have crossed paths with a few of them including this way.

5. Current Gambia National team captain was a guest at a wedding where I was best man.

6. Walked past 9ice and pasuma once. Didn't recognize them though.

Do C suite level bank managers count?

Late Ojb jezreel (peak talent show, everyone was scared to approach the judges after the show. I broke the ice and had a fun photo, several shots).

Is a governor a celeb? Then second on my list was oshiomole. I was trekking in a hot sunny day, and this convoy was disturbing my ear with siren. Getting to where I was, oshiomole then governor Edo state, wound down his windows and said 'O boy',I was shocked and he said 'hru' I was so confused I just stamped my feet on the ground and gave a soldiers salute ... Just out of the blue like that and convoy continued.

Lastly was chiwetala agu, I was working as a pump attendant at a filling station. One random car parks at the diesel stand, I go to attend to the car and boom... It's chiwetala agu at the back seat, asking me directions to Edo hotel. I was dumb for a few seconds. Sadly I did not know the directions, I tried to call for r reinforcement and the car (an Audi) whisked away.

Met one like that in a public transit (God is Good) first class, he becomes center of attention. ladies, guys taking selfies like their lives depended on it.

All this while I had my Dr. Dre headset on and blasting Eminem "Superman" and "3 A.M" on repeat... I didn't give a single, not even a tiny fûck about him till we got to our destination.
Funniest thing was: he was sitted next to me, didn't say a single word, nor acted like I knew him.

Inwardly he was pained, I could tell.

The only celebrity I'll ever give a fûck about in this life is Eminem and Enya..... The rest can go FT, IDGAF.
"met one like that" lol...bad guy!

once sat opposite Tubaba on airport shuttle (from plane to terminal). dude kept staring at me for some reason so i bone am tongue ladies were taking selfies like their lives depended on it.

met femi kuti at his shrine. baba is the coolest cat you can ever run into. met terry g at the shrine too, at the height of his popularity then. he was an arrogant asshole, am sure he's humble now cheesy nothing lasts forever...

saw omotola at lekki palms mall and she was a total cunt, self-absorbed with no joy at all.

most of these celebrities are complete assholes imo
