He said, “My passion for acting has been my drive. It is the reason for my consistency even at 62 years old. I have been so passionate about the profession from inception, and I have always been content with whatever I get from acting. I give glory to God for keeping me alive and allowing me the opportunity to keep doing what I love doing best. Right now, I feature in more movies than I used to about 20 years ago. I am presently on the ‘Ile Alayo’, a television series produced by Femi Adebayo for Startimes. That makes it evident that I am still very active in the industry. Movie producers would always want to feature actors that actually have something to offer, hence I am busier than I used to be two decades ago. Unfortunately, many of the new actors don’t have the originality and ingenuity required for acting.

There are very few people who are original and also know the nitty-gritty of acting. I advise younger people coming into the industry to take the job as a serious profession, rather than what they can use to mark time. They also have to be disciplined and acquire theatre education and orientation. Unfortunately, many of the young people out there are not disciplined. They are more concerned about the money they can make from acting, not the passion that should be given to the profession.”
