According to him, he was introduced to the Nigerian movie industry by Regina Askia and his first movie was an Igbo Freak titled ‘The Skeleton’ with Mr. Fidelis Duka.

Since then, he had featured in countless movies. Although some people who watch his movies claim that he is a tough actor who likes to play tough roles, he said, people could play what ever role given to them in the make-believe industry but that does not mean that is what they are in real life. The important thing is to interprete the roles well.

Among these movies are the senator 1&2, ‘The Senatorium,’ ‘My Love’, ‘Desperados,’ ‘Broad Day Light and other best sellers.

  7. Today, I went to the beachfront with my children. I found a
    sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.”
    She put the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it
    pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is entirely off topic but I had to tell someone!
