A lot of our Nigerian celebrities if not all did not just wake up in fame, riches and the good lifestyles they are enjoying today. Most of them went through despicable things, hardship and hunger before hitting the limelight. I will put it this way, they went through shame to get to fame and the journey according to them was not palatable, but a mere look at them today, you will think they were born into riches.
