1 Fake Life
Most celebrities in Nigeria today are used to fake life. they want to tell the world they have arrived which makes it looks like others are not trying their best.
They post a luxurious lifestyle everyday even tho some of them might not have the current means in living and maintaining such life. In 2017 Nigerian singer Dammy Krane was arrested in U. S for fraud, prior to this time he was seen all over Instagram on private jets and having luxurious vacations.
