Comedian Ush Bebe talks about Public Perception Of Entertainers

Ushbebe-1

Most people have difficulty separating entertainers and celebrities from their acts. Actors, comedians, and musicians usually suffer from such perceptions by the public. While some of these celebrities actually do retain their professional person in their people relationships, comedian and radio presenter Justice Emonaerere Nuagbe, aka Ush Bebe has come out to say that that shouldn’t be the norm. According to him, professional entertainers shouldn’t be judged by their trade.

Hear him: “I’m an actor, so if I come and do stuff and you want to classify me by what I’ve just done, then you have a problem. You need to know me personally. So, if you know them personally and classify them as wayward, then congratulations, but if you don’t know them and you’re doing it, then (re-enacting Falz) ‘well done sir, well done ma’”, it’s your P. But (seriously when it’s someone’s else’s job, you need to give them a bit of space…try to understand them and know them more before you judge them.”

He said even though it’s easy to consider people like bankers and doctors as serious people, that he could only pass a jugdgement on their personality when he knows them outside their work.We cannot agree more with him on this one. The message is clear, not only for your perception of celebrities, but for everyone else: don’t judge a book by its cover. Well said Ush Bebe
