Fans are really confused with the demands of the Nollywood stars.
Mr. Ibu, another Nollywood star, asked a couple of days before for assistance from his fans.
There are mixed reactions from Nigerian people as some of them are saying that they should help their favourite artists, while another school of thought says that it isn’t good to help famous people who already have a significant amount of money.
One netizen ‘Henrioking Nya M.D.’ commented “Nigerians pay a lot to o celebrities.; We pay to watch them. We find their lifestyles. We celebrate them. Why do we have to be called each time they fall ill? Is the entertainment industry not self-sufficient for its creators?”
