Why I wouldn’t host events for certain politicians – Ebuka Obi-Uchendu

Media personality, Ebuka Obi-Uchendu has revealed there are certain politicians he wouldn’t be hosting events for.

The host of the popular reality TV show, Big Brother Naija in an interview with Channels said that people will have to decide where they will draw the line working for politicians.

“It’s a very heavy burden and I think it’s unfair to believe that celebrities are not suppose to feed. A lot of people make their living from these things. But at the same time, when you do decide to put yourself out there, you have to understand that it comes with these heavy consequences as well. And whatever line you decide to tow, you have to be ready,” he added.

In the past few years, celebrities have come under heavy criticism for hosting events for politicians.

“I wouldn’t host certain gigs for certain politicians. And it’s not necessarily about the parties they belong to. It might be maybe because of the ideas that they’ve shown in the past, or whatever,” Ebuka added.

“But at the same time, I don’t hold that against anybody. And I also I am able to draw a distinct line between working for somebody and doing something for the government. I have hosted things in the Presidential Villa. I felt like I was doing that for the government. I wasn’t doing that for the person in the office. If you can draw that distinct line for yourself,” he said.
