In recent times Nigeria has recorded many social, economic and national issues. However, it seems the celebrities are more particular about recent killings and how money circulation is not flowing which has resulted to ‘hardship’ in the country.
Here are few celebrities who have complained bitterly about the current situation of the Nation while others lambaste President Muhammadu Buhari and his government over hardship and killings in Nigeria:
1. Laura Ikeji
Popular entrepreneur Laura Ikeji has blasted the government as she complains about money not being in circulation in the country, according to her this is making a lot of people depressed.
Laura Ikeji who said the government should bury their head in shame, went further to decry the invasion of privacy by security officials, bad roads across the country and poor electricity supply
The obviously angered socialite posted an image where she expressed her frustration about the abnormalities going on in the country.
She captioned the image above with;
“Government officials I mean. There was a country indeed.”
Simisola Ogunleye, who simply goes by Simi, recently rant on how Nigeria is a scary place to live in. According to her, crazy things happen and suspects escape free because there is no accountability in Nigeria.
“Nigeria is a fucking scary place to be. The worst part is a lot of crazy stuff happens because they KNOW there will be no consequences. It’s not rocket science. But how do we get from where we are to where we need to be?? + it’s not just the government, it’s us too.
We’re just getting by. No confidence in this broken system. So we hope that today is good for us and that we see tomorrow. Rinse and repeat. Surviving, instead of actually living.
And then we have people fighting for leadership positions only to serve themselves. Not us. They really couldn’t give less of a fuck about us. STILL we turn on each other to serve them. So absolutely, ridiculously stupid! We’re supposed to be on the same side.
We outnumber them by millions. They should be accountable to us. They should be scared of us. Not the other way round. If they don’t want to do right because they should, they should do right cos we refuse to accept anything less.
But it’s not enough for only a few people to think this way. Because why on earth should I fight if I know you won’t have my back. Why on earth would you fight if you think I won’t fight with you? So you see – the problem is us.”

Nigerian rapper, Mocheddah cried out about how hard life is despite all the slay pictures she and her kind upload on social media.
In a post she shared on social media, Mocheddah expressed the stress she goes through as a business owner to satisfy her customers.
This is me —
After a goooood cry �, I had to wipe my tears , drink tea , get on the phone and get work done .
40% of my time is spent on the phone talking , I do not wish it so but it is , I’m either talking to staff , a supplier or trying to get logistic companies to “do their job “on time because customers need their orders ..
Another 40% is spent on the field , in the sun buying materials I would need or on an okada trying to meet up with a delivery, ( I’ll post the picture soon )
The last 20% is what I have left for myself , family and other businesses I run … .
.It is HARD , I cry , I cry a lot .. .
that’s the only way you can survive as a Nigerian business owner … .
Do not let my Instagram slay pictures deceive you , being an ADULT is HARD work, being an entrepreneur is even HARDER .. .
If you must chop you must work
On the brighter side God rewards hard work … so you will always reap what you have sewn .. I’m writing this to let someone out there know it’s hard for me too … but we will survive .. PS- try drinking green tea – it makes it easier.
