Popular Nollywood actor, Deyemi Okanlawon, has opined that fame does not automatically translate to wealth.
The thespian made this assertion while advising his colleagues to be strategic by trying to reach for “highest earnings” instead of aiming for “highest grossing” or “highest featured.”
“Not every time aim for HIGHEST GROSSING or HIGHEST FEATURED… more often reach for HIGHEST EARNING! #alist”, he wrote on Twitter.
A Twitter user who seemed to have a different opinion quoted the tweet, noting that she believes that being famous brings riches.
“I thought the fame brings the bag??” She asked.
Responding, Deyemi, who maintained his position that fame does not always imply wealth, stated that not all famous people are well-off.
“There are lots of famous broke ppl… fame is a byproduct, it’s the talent and the grind (work strategy and work ethic) that brings the bag”.
Meanwhile, famous Nigerian Singer, Korede Bello has started a discussion about the high price people are paying for fame.
The ‘Godwin’ crooner took to his social media page to claim that people are selling their souls for fame.
In his words, “The price of fame is at an all time high. Souls being sold out here.”
