Afro pop star Kelly Hansome [above] has taken to Facebook to chide artistes who are living fake lives above their means, calling on them to fall back to reality or face the worst that will come later.
He said there is nothing for an artiste in the fake world especially for those who live by the code, ‘Fake it till you make it’ and that it pays to live in the real world where the artiste can live like himself with nothing to lose in the future.
He went ahead to call on artistes who are running to luxurious parts of Lagos just to earn people’s respect to quit the act because it will only be a matter of time before they will realize that they have nothing and start falling back to the ‘hood’ as losers.
Through his Facebook account, he wrote; “All those fake artistes who ran 2 Lekki 2 live in big houses above their means are running back 2 the Mainland now. Na now we go know those who are really born 2 do this because my guy, no be by Lekki o.
“To hell with that ‘Fake it till you make it’ crap, wake up to reality. If you are living above your means, you are proud and you’re a thief. Gaskia mana!”
Kelly Hansome in a recent interview said he will be moving into youth empowerment education and is also working on three books which when released will help lots of youths in the storms of life.
This advice falls in that direction where he wants to use his experience to help younger artistes avoid making some of the everyday mistakes in the entertainment industry.
