Desmond Elliott: The Day Ramsey Nouah Snubbed My Handshake While Listening To Jamaican Music
Oct 14, 2015 – Desmond Elliott: The Day Ramsey Nouah Snubbed My Handshake While Listening To Jamaican Music In His Car
Nollywood actor Desmond Elliott recently went down the memory lane to his journey into Nollywood and how his senior colleague insulted him.
Recalling vividly his first interaction with Ramsey Nouah, Desmond Eliott says his look when he attempted to shake him wasn’t pleasant. According to him, Nouah was playing one Jamaican song in his car and he left where everyone was seated to meet him.
“Now, it is funny how I see other young actors come to me. They call me by character name and try to explain the role they are playing just the way I introduced myself to Nouah then. It is now a conscious effort to be nicer because truth be told he wasn’t really nice to me.
He just said okay and he continued listening to his song,” he narrates. But, Elliot maintains that one shouldn’t be quarrelsome, stressing that one should be prepared to meet people with different ideas, characters and spirits.
“Don’t be quarrelsome because message spread faster. The fact that people felt I was humble worked for me, though they would never give you a bad or hard man’s role.”
