On why he ventured into blogging, the outspoken celebrity said COVID-19, and the resultant lockdown made him join the blogging train.
“I don’t know why people ask why I become a blogger. People should know that I am about the money. Instagram is a place to make money so I turned mine into a marketplace. Most of the time I post the content myself, but not every time. I decided to start blogging when I saw the trend and the way things were going especially because of coronavirus and the lockdown. I said to myself, this is a way to make money. It’s also something people haven’t really tried or are scared to try.”
Shedding light on the doors Big Brother Naija has opened for him, he said:
“It has opened opportunities to network and meet known movie directors and producers. It’s been amazing honestly. I have featured in a few productions here and there.”
Onyema also revealed that being positive helps him to deal with social media trolls against all odds.
According to him:
“You just have to pray to God every day and keep your sanity. That is what I try to do. I try to be positive no matter what. I just try to think positively, keep moving and progressing.”
When probed on how he handles attention from his numerous female fans, he stated:
”I try to be as polite as I can and at the same time set boundaries. I don’t want issues later on.”
