We have heard about the most bizarre things Celebrities have on and off-screen. Whether it's showcasing how financially endowed they are, personal beliefs or probably just for fun.

In 2009, Paris Hilton thought it's a great idea for her dogs to own luxury like she does, and spent $325,000 on a two-story, 300-square feet Villa. But who's complaining? It's her money and we get to see cute animals living in their own mini mansions!
Or what about when Williow Smith announced she believes she can control time. In an interview with The New York Times magazine in 2014, she said she can make time, 'go slow or fast, however I please. That's how I know it doesn't exist.' and we can't forget the time Davido acted like a conductor in London. Do I even need to mention African politicians? We all know the drama that swims in the world of politics.
As much as there are lots of stories to tell about these celebrities, what about the craziest things fans have done for these celebrities?
There's always that remarkable love and admiration we have for our favorite artistes, movie stars and media personalities. We have Kpop fans who can go all out and sell out the most expensive items they have seen their favorite idols wear, or there's the simple and regular banter on Twitter about Wizkid and Davido.
These stories are simply ways fans express their love and gratitude to their favorite Celebrities. Though, they can be over-the-top, a bit outrageous and crazy, it's still nice to see amazings things people do for others.
I love my parents but they really need to loosen up a little and increase my allowance for a month. I live in school, a bit far away from home, so my parents obviously don't keep so much tabs on what I do. Of course, I decided to use this to my advantage. My mom gives me 50,000 naira for a month as my allowance. It's only enough for me to survive, and fight against Sapa. So, one time I kept watching YouTube videos of BTS. I became an Army (BTS' fandom name) recently. And suddenly, I felt like I could show my support to these guys that brings me joy. I also needed new hoodies. So, I told my mom I needed 100k for series of school projects we'll be doing and I'll need to leave school for it. I don't know how she belived it bur she did. Next thing I knew after I was credited, I had bunch of hoodies and photocards of BTS face.
I see myself as a peaceful person, at least I think I am, that's until you decide to cross your boundary and say things you aren't suppose to. See, I'm a Wizkid fan and my personality on Twitter is totally different from my personality in reality and that's why I think social media is a great place to hide and defend. I remember one time there was this crazy Davido vs Wizkid banter on Twitter. I love both guys, but abeg don't insult Wizkid. But this guy insulted him and it pissed me off so much that I did a whole background research on him and used it against him. He blocked me, and I created a new account to torture him more. I'm not proud of this tho, but I'm very sure I gave him a good trauma.
This happened very recently, during the Davido O2 Arena concert in London. I live in London actually, but I was in Spain for a while, I was planning on staying for a month and few weeks because of some business related issues. I ended up cutting that short to two weeks, lefty pending assignment and travelled to London for the concerts. I went back to Spain a week later. Thankfully, my crazy decision to leave work and travel for a concert didn't make me loose anything important.
I like to think of myself as a devoted BTS Army that does good like the boys do. I have two stories. Firstly, I remember when 'Butter' came out and it was to be released in the afternoon in South Korea, but in Nigerian time, it was 5am. I didn't want to miss it, I wanted to be one of the first people that streamed the some. So, I set my alarm and woke up when it was 4:30 am and when it was 5am, I started streaming the songs on my phone. The song is so good, so I'm not complaining. I find it hard to wake up in the morning, but it's easy when it comes to streaming a new song for someone that doesn't know me personally. That's crazy to me.
People see Armys as "crazy trouble makers" there's some truth to it but it's not true. We are good people. And when I heard Armys were donating and raising funds for Black Lives Matter, I didn't pass the chance to donate a couple of hundred dollars, part where from my savings. BTS also donated $1 million, and that was very assuring that my money was well spent. There are also a few things I have contributed for charity together with some Armys, sometimes I go broke but it has opened my eyes to see and understand something I'd love to pay attention to and do more in the future. Who knows, I might just start something with my experience in charity work.
