Feb 13, 2016 – Nigerian Actor Saint Obi: I Joined Nollywood To Become A Millionaire

See what Nollywood ‘bad boy’ Saint Obi told Saturday Beats recently on why he joined Nollywood

“I am not one of the accidental actors in Nollywood. As a child, I had always wanted to be an actor. I was drawn to acting because of the fantasies. As a child, I grew up watching American movies and I used to love the actors I saw on screen. As I grew older, I found out that I could be successful without venturing into crime. I found out that it was a very plausible platform to become a millionaire without bribing anybody. All you need is your talent and God’s grace. That made acting more compelling for me.

“The other key factor that made me become an actor was to stay away from crime and to become a rich man. It was not easy convincing my parents because back in the days, people saw us as jokers and people without future ambition. I had some of my sisters who were in America and I knew that it would take luck for me to break into Hollywood. I knew it was not a joke, so I stayed put in Nigeria. My father died before I gained admission into the university, so it was not too difficult convincing my mother that I wanted to study Theatre Arts in the University of Jos. Although my mother is dead, she was very happy that I chose this path”.

  1. Saint Obi best performance in my opinion was his role in a movie title “Dapo Junior.” Without any doubt, he is truly not an accidental actor has he claimed. He is very talented, smart, and very good at playing any role assigned to him. If Saint Obi is now a multi millionaire, I want to believe that he made his millions of dumb Badluck Jonathan who lavish our money on Nollywood actors, actresses, and film producers at the expense of millions of suffering Nigerian people. I congratulate brother Obi for being a partaker of the national cake of corruption, mismanagement, embezzlement, and looting. I hope that your name doesn’t come up in the Dansukigate scandal. In Nollywood film history, Saint Obi remains one of our all times best.

  2. So have you get money? You say you won get money, na it make you no de dash persin something? You have wear this coat for 10years. You have wear you shoe for 13years. Even the eye glass have tey wey you don wear am. You no want to dash somebody. No wahala is a nonsense bicos wahala is dey. You go poor very soon.
