- The reality star noted that she is a hustler just like everyone else and she needs to be paid
- According to her, just carrying the tag of a celebrity does not put food on the table
Former Big Brother Naija (BBNaija) housemate Uriel Oputa has taken to social media with a lengthy note directed at people who are fond of asking her to work for free.
The reality star noted that the development makes her sad, especially because she does not work a regular 8-5pm job that pays on a monthly basis.
Uriel noted that it took her six years to get to where she is at the moment, and another three years to stay afloat since she left the BBNaija reality show.
The former UK-based lady also pointed out that it has not been easy creating content and also managing herself for a whopping three years.

"Omo 3 years of content creating, 3 years of managing myself, yes guys I don’t have a manager, I did for 6months Mr Paul. P.S I do have people who advice me though! 3 years of stress, fear, panic, doubts, happiness, pure work, 3 years of riding Taxify/Uber," her post read in part.
Uriel went on to note that she needs people to respect her hustle and understand that business is business. The ex-BBNaija housemate made it clear that she has mouths to feed.
According to her, being a celebrity is not what will put food on the table.
