      I bet most of these celebrities have no clue what the charity stands for. They are simply copycats. Nigerians are notorious for just copying and no originality.

      really guys? This is not a copying thing anyone who lives in the United States knows what red nose day is. all you have to do is purchase a red nose from Walgreens, the money goes to the charity. shekena. It’s not only celebrates that did it. we teachers in my school all did it and wore the red nose to school, it was a way of teaching our students that we all have to contribute to building our society.

    Ehen b4 any ovasabi will come and shout copy copy and what of our own African problems, just know that the biggest beneficiaries of red nose day are under privileged African Children. Left to me Africans should get more involved with stuff like this. We cant keep waiting for oyibo ppl to help us and then foolishly criticise the Nigerians that r joining to raise the awareness.

    Copy cats… why didn’t they do it before the US people… why didn’t they start last year… pathetic wannabes. I’m actually really upset about this… you start a business, everyone wants to start same business… With all our intelligence all we know how to do is copy. Na where China pass us.. them go copy but some go copy become brand… e.g. Samsung and etc… even the solo guy I hail. But my Aba brothers have been copying TM etc yet they can’t come out with good brands…. and they sew even better.. no just tire

      It is a British thing. America just started it this year. All these charity donations most times is not used for what they were intended for.

  19. Complex

    May 22, 2015 at 12:07 pm

    Nigerians have a HUGE complex with any and everything foreign. The envy is real and its usually people who can’t afford visa let alone ticket to travel abroad. Just look at the comments here. Its the same people who will notice someones accent before anything and pounce of them if its foreign. The same people who will say someone who lived abroad practically their whole lives is ‘forming’. Real complex.

    Nigerian celebrities and ‘I must copy oyibo’ attitude.

    This is just ridiculous. The UK started rednose day.. with the thanks of Lenny Henry and the UK comedy scene raising money for UK and Africa’s underprivileged children and health initiatives. the USA just started this recently because of the huge celebs and fanfare that was massive in the UK this year.. in march. Naijas are just jumping on the bandwagon. They really need to watch the films being made by the real brains behind the work these celebs really do.. until the cry their eyes out.. they will not understand. If you want to even copy.. copy and do it well and don’t do it half baked.

    Normally, i would not comment on things like this because i really could careless but after reading some comments especially those accusing both individuals of copying the west, i had to. First let me say i get the argument, why can’t we be trendsetters? why do we ALWAYS have to follow the trend set by others? but how many of us have actually tried setting trends? if we can not be trend setters then we should not bash those who follow positive trends, for Christians even Paul said “it is true that some preach Christ out of envy and rivalry but others out of goodwill but what does it matter as long as Christ is preached” so what does it matter why they follow? whether it is to be a “feelamonger,” as long as they are following good and positive trends why should it matter? Secondly, have you tried setting a trend in Nigeria?if you have you would understand how difficult it is, seeing how people thumb noses at you. We don’t support our own things/people unless it has a foreign label or tag attached to it or the person has featured some international celebs , it is never tush enough. Just saying…. so before we start bashing them for “copying” lets look within and really exam if our society as in anyway supported trendsetters. If WE have supported trendsetters, maybe if we celebrated trendsetters more like we do “rich” people then we will have more trend setters in our amidst.

      It’s really not this serious. Why not start trends yourself? And stop waiting for others
      This issue of Nigerians calling out other Nigerians for “copying” is so redundant. Stella lives in America so why can’t she adapt their “culture”?? It’s not like she was walking around with a red nose in Lagos.
      Stop being judgemental for once and reason!! It’s the same people who have NEVER left Naij yet have british & American accents that are leaving comments, I can assure you lmaoo.
