It would surprise you to know that we have a lot of Nigerian
celebrities in Tinsel-town. Nope, I am not talking about Chinwetel Ejiofor, Sade or Stephanie Okereke
’s increasing moves to direct international movies in collaboration with American film-makers. I am not even referring to Nneka
the pretty, sultry crooner’s success, collaborating with the likes of Nas and performing with Mary J Blige, Lenny Kravitz and Gnarls Barkley.
It is not even about Faze’s 3 seconds of fame supposedly signing up with Akon’s Konvict Music imprint, though that issue never saw the light of day like Chris Okotie’s presidential ambition.
Believe me when I say this, some Nigerian entertainers and politicians bear a striking resemblance to Yankee celebs. They had better start asking their folks some serious questions o. Ok I joke, I joke, but alas it is working.
In the post before this one, we saw example of closet Nigerians. In this one, we may just have kindred spirits separated by land and seas. They just may not know it yet.
