Celebrities, sometimes you look at them and it seems like they’re heavenly beings but that’s not true. They are just like me and you. Some of them mess up and embarrass themselves just like everybody else.
Here are Nigerian celebrities messed up on social media.
1. Oge Okoye And The Stolen Dog
We all remember this. Oge Okoye stole a picture of American reality show star, Kenya Moore’s dogs and claimed them as hers. She even gave them different names!
2. Tuface And The Lie About Collaborating With R Kelly
The year was 2009. Tuface Idibia had just released the “Unstoppable” album. Tuface announced that he had a song coming out that he had done with American R&B superstar, R.Kelly and Nigeria collectively freaked out.
We couldn’t wait for the song to drop. When it finally did, people were disappointed because something about the song was off. The beat used in the song had already been used in an old R.Kelly song and this made people question its authenticity.
A few months after this, R.Kelly came to Nigeria for the ThisDay music festival and inside sources revealed that R.Kelly claimed to have never heard of Tuface before and laughed at the song they had supposedly recorded together.
3. The Death Of Skiibii
Skiibii is a Five Star Music music artiste that debuted in 2015 and in an attempt to quickly raise his popularity levels, decided it would be a good idea to fake his death and eventual resurrection in what eventually became known as the worst publicity stunt in Nigerian entertainment history.
Five Star Music lied about him dying, lied about him ‘defeating death’ and then when Nigerians figured out that the whole thing was a hoax, they released obviously staged hospital pictures.
4. Lizzy Anjorin Destroyed Us With Her English
It was supposed to be a cute video of her playing with her dogs. Things went wrong when one dog (named ‘Pretty’) got pissed at the other dog (named ‘Terror’) for some reason and began to attack him.
Lizzy decided to step in and separate the fight and in the process screamed, “Pretty stop it! Stop JEALOUS!” when she should’ve said, “Stop being jealous”
5. The Time Denrele Fell Off The Stage While Dancing
2015, the manic TV presenter that we know and love, Denrele Edun, was dancing violently on stage at an event in Port Harcourt when he tripped on his trademark insanely long braids and fell off the stage.
It was freaking hilarious. It was funny until we found out that the accident resulted in him breaking his neck. That made it funnier.
