‘I should be paid for being a celebrity’ – Speed Darlington
Controversial Nigerian hip-hop artiste, Darlington Okoye, popularly known as Speed Darlington, said he deserves to be paid for “being a celebrity.”
The United State-based rapper stated this when he appeared on the latest episode of The Honest Bunch podcast, co-hosted by actor, Nedu.
Speed Darlington earlier came under fire after some fans recently called him out for requesting to be paid N5,000 before hugging or taking pictures with them.
But speaking on the podcast, Speed Darlington insisted that he deserved to be paid for just “being a celebrity.”
He said, “I really think I should be paid for being a celebrity.”
Nedu told him that without fans’ love, he wouldn’t be a celebrity.
But Speed Darlington refuted his claims, saying, “What generates that love? Why them no hug mad man for road?”
