To live a life as a celebrity is not an easy thing to do as many people believe once you are seen on TV screens, then it means you have a lot of money. That is not the case my brothers and sisters because of these reasons. Once your face becomes known by many people, then you have to cease doing certain things you did as a normal person.
You have to stop using public transport (Trotro) and adapt to Uber that is if you don't have your own car. You don't have to be seen patronizing foods that are sold at any point. There are so many things you have to stop doing that is if you want to be seen as the celebrity you are.
That status is not a joke
