Tell us three things you like and three things you dislike about your current position as an actor in the Nigerian entertainment industry.
I am grateful for the recognition I am receiving from producers and casting directors I have always admired and wanted to work with. The quality of films being released is remarkable and is sparking conversations on social media. I am also pleased to see that younger actors and filmmakers are being given the opportunity to create something special.
Due to the attention I am receiving, people are expecting me to have a lot of money, when in reality I am still working hard to make a good life for myself. This newfound attention is taking some getting used to, but I am confident that I will adjust with time.
The film industry can be unpredictable, with periods of inactivity followed by a flurry of work offers that can sometimes conflict with each other. This is something I have no control over, as filmmaking is a collaborative effort and the people involved have different schedules and work times. I am getting used to this, but it will take some time.
What are you looking forward to in the new year any projects?
My debut project, Dark October, is coming to Netflix, and it is a pivotal film in my career thus far. Additionally, I have a number of other unreleased features, such as ‘The Origin’, that will be released on various platforms throughout the year.
I am also looking forward to being cast in more projects, being on set, and creating the best work possible.
