“Celebrity life has prevented me from doing a lot of things” – Chike laments
Nigerian R&B singer Chike Ezekpeazu Osebuka, professionally known as Chike, has reminisced on his life as a regular person before hitting stardom.
He recalled being able to drive himself to the car wash and going to the barbershop to get a haircut when he was younger, all of which he can no longer do freely because he’s now a celebrity.
Speaking in an interview with The Cable, the ‘Roju’ crooner said he does not have any regrets about being famous, but he misses those regular activities he could do as a normal person.
Chike said, “I do not have any regrets. Since I consciously started making music, I have always wanted to be recognized for what I do. So, I will not say I have regrets, but I would just say there are some things that I wish I could still do without raising an eyebrow.
For example, I love to take my car to the car wash and do stuff for myself. In fact, one of my favorite things to do when I was younger was to be in a barber’s shop and get a haircut, but now you have to stay at home. It is a lot of home time. I am not very extroverted, but there are just certain places that I like to go to.”
When asked to talk about musicians he has worked with and who among them is his favorite, the artist said all of them.
