Controversial Nigerian hip-hop artiste, Darlington Okoye aka Speed Darlington has explained why he deserves to be paid for “being a celebrity.”
The United States-based rapper spoke when he appeared on the latest episode of The Honest Bunch podcast, co-hosted by actor, Nedu.
Recall that Speed Darlington recently 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.”
“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?”
