During an appearance on Channels TV’s program, Rubbin’ Minds, which is co-hosted by former reality stars Beauty Tukura and Prince Nelson, Ebuka shared his perspective on fame and its impact on his life.

Contrary to what many might assume, Ebuka revealed that he never actively sought fame and does not find pleasure in being in the spotlight.

While acknowledging the advantages that come with fame, he expressed his preference for focusing on his career and the financial rewards it brings, rather than seeking attention and recognition.

In his own words, Ebuka stated, “I have never been a fan of fame. And if you know me, I think you can tell. But I have also understood that it comes with what I do.

“I have never courted fame. I have never chased fame. I have never really sort of thrived in it. I’m not the kind of guy who is going to our things out to be talked about. So, most times if you see me being talked about, it’s because of my work. It’s not because I did something outside of my work.

“I don’t know that I enjoyed fame or I have ever really liked it that much. I mean, it comes with its benefits, I can never deny that. But I also understand that it is a necessary evil that comes with having a career that is public.

“But if you left me with an option, I would take the career with the money that is coming with it and not be famous.”
