Being a celebrity might look very glamorous, but it is definitely not easy. A number of stars have become targets for trolls on social media and it is sometimes difficult to ignore them.
Popular reality TV show, BBNaija, kept many Nigerians glued to their TV screens as they voted for their favourite housemates. Alas only one person can emerge as the winner but this does not take away from the star quality of others.
The show helped create a new set of celebs and they have had to do things to remain relevant. Sometimes trolls on social media try to pit some of the contestants against each other by comparing their achievements.

BBNaija 2017 housemate, Uriel Oputa, was recently the target for a troll who accused her of always begging for cars and endorsements on social media. The troll went ahead to compare her to another BBNaija star Alex, who was recently gifted a Venza car by her fans as a birthday present.
The troll wrote: “U re here begging for car and endorsement while Alex that just came out has plenty endorsement nd her birthday gift was a venza jeep, fool @urielmusicstar”
Well Uriel is obviously not one to leave negative comments unattended as she reposted the harsh comment then proceeded to school the troll on some life lessons.
In her lengthy post, she explained that every individual has their different challenges and that she can decide to buy a car, but it would be at the expense of her mother's health. She also added that she would willingly board taxis so her mother can have the best health care.
She wrote: "Firstly My Name is Ada Uriel Ngozika Chukwu Oputa... Not Alex.. I love her so much. She's Hot!!
Secondly I Never judge or Compare my Life style to anyone's we all have a different cross to bare.. How can I look at another women like Alex who's working hard like myself and Hate?? NEVER. MEHN.. I NO GET BAD BELLE OO .I SLEEP EASY.
YES I DO WANT A CAR @igba_ka_igba but like I said we all have a Cross to bare.. If I really wanted to buy a Car I could but we all have a Cross to bare . When you are constantly paying for round the clock Care for a Sick parent then maybe you will understand the pressure.. We all have cross to bare.
I'm not looking at a Fancy Car but a wheelchair friendly Car so I'm able to get my mum from point A to B.
Lastly Check well since I left the big brother house I've been Signing deals back to back.. working back to back .. I'm not going to sit here and Lie healthcare of my mum is worth more than anything.. as long as she's alive.. I would ride taxis all day.
This is why I'm still relevant today... I Work HARD.
