Nigerian comedian and actor, Basketmouth has thrown a shade at fellow celebrities who love to flaunt a certain lifestyle on social media. This he did by posing in a private jet and posting the picture on his Instagram page. He claims it felt so good portraying a life of bliss when he really doesn’t live that way. Read his post below.
”I was so tempted to use the caption ‘Living the life’ or ‘Thank you God’ or ‘Hard work pays’… but then….who am I lying to? Wey I know say I fly local.
I just really wanted to see how easy it was to take such pictures to look more successful, and surprisingly, its not that hard….. Just saying.
This is clearly a shade thrown at celebrities who now believe they have to take pictures of themselves in a private jet to show off on social media. To them, it shows that their status is of high class even when they aren’t actually as rich as they are portraying.
Just last year, Nigerian singer, Dammy Krane was arrested in the US for grand and credit card theft. He was arrested on grounds of booking a private jet with stolen credit cards. Before then, his Instagram life had to do with him posing in several jets.
Reacting to the arrest, his former label boss, 2face said,
“Dammy is good. He’s a young blood that very charismatic, likeable,
talented, crazy but not that type of crazy. I think it’s safe to call it
implication, he just caught up in something he knew nothing about.
Because of time, place, association, he just got caght up in all that.
But he’s fine now.”
