Stoopid Boy vs Ofweneke: Various celebrities’ statements regarding compensation for media interviews

The discussion started after Dr. Ofweneke mentioned that he had invited Arbantone artist Stoopid Boy for an interview, but the singer declined due to lack of payment. Dr. Ofweneke offered to cover transportation costs, but Stoopid Boy canceled the interview last minute, stating that he didn’t need the exposure.

Stoopid Boy remarked, “There’s no way you can be young, famous, and broke. You need to know how I live for you to call me for such nonsense.”

On Sunday, May 12, Dr. Ofweneke addressed the issue again in response to numerous inquiries. He emphasized that the conversation needed to be had, not about whether artists should be paid for interviews, but whether rising stars were being taken advantage of, with their popularity not reflecting in their finances.
