Celebrities are human beings like you – Dolapo Badmus
Popular police officer, Dolapo Opeyemi Badmus has urged members of the public to desist from imagining and dictating how celebrities’ lives should look like.
She added that though celebrities should be Pious as a public figure however, they should be allowed to be “normal” at times.
In a post on Instagram, she recounted how a man saw her buying roasted Plantain (Boli) and groundnut (EPA) by the road side, and he wondered why a celebrity like her should be eating that snack.
She wrote: “So I came down from my vehicle to buy roasted Plantain (Boli) and groundnut (EPA) a guy saw me and said ohhh!!!Opetodolapo, so you too dey eat Boli and EPA?! I’m like “excuuuuuuse me?! I never knew I’m one🙄”. What’s wrong with me eating Boli and Epa, he was like haaaa celebrities don’t suppose to eat Boli and EPA nah! Really?! Who told you that?! Ahn ahn Bros so celebrities don’t have blood 🩸 in them right?! Bros bikonu celebrities are human beings like you!!!! I lectured him on the nutritional value of Boli especially when it’s not too ripe….how filling it can also be and at the same time how eating it can also save cost (it’s not every day you patronize expensive restaurant or eat buffet) 😁 Bros later agreed with me, I paid for us and I moved on!
“On getting back into my car I started ruminating on how people imagine and want to dictate how celebrities’ lives should look like. They imagine celebrities are from another planet! They determine how they should work, eat, talk, and even dance! They seem not to understand that they are also human and should be allowed to be “normal” at times….I know and understand celebrities should be Pious, as a public figure there are expectations of them but hey when they become “normal” we shouldn’t crucify them for crying out loud!!!! Being a Celebrity is a sacrifice. Ish!!! TGIF”
