Comedian Kenny Blaq has in an interview with Punch said not much about his life has changed since attaining stardom.
Kenny Blaq, real name Otolorin Kehinde, said he still visits local canteens to eat amala when he’s craving a meal, still takes okada when commuting. He said:
Stardom has not changed anything about me. I still go to the local amala joint in my area to eat. I wear slippers whenever I am taking a stroll on my street, I still ride on okada.
I think the little way stardom may have changed me is that it has made me wiser and helped me to identify my true friends. There are some friends who are there because I am Kenny Blaq and there are the real friends who are with me because I am Kehinde.
On relationships, the comedian complained that it’s hard for a star to find true love.
It’d be difficult to find a girl who loves him for who he is, he said, because everyone loves Kenny Blaq. He said:
It is hard for a star to find true love. For instance, if I say that I want to get married today and I don’t have a girlfriend, it would be difficult to get a girl that loves me for who I am because everybody loves Kenny Blaq.
It is really tough finding someone that really loves you. Besides that, I don’t have privacy anymore because I cannot take a walk on the street without being afraid of kidnappers. I am scared they might kidnap me.
