August 6, 2016 – Nollywood Actor Who Set Himself On Fire Says He Took The Role To Spice Up His Career

Ani Iyoho has confirmed to Saturday Beats that his rumoured fire accident was not real.

Here is how the actor narrated his experience…

“When I was set ablaze, it felt very warm. I was covered with a protective gear soaked in a protective gel. All I could feel was warmth. Being a stuntman, I knew better than to breathe-in during that process. I was very excited. We had done a test run to know what it would feel like. It was like pouring warm water on oneself and it just kept getting hotter over time. During the test run, I dipped my hand into a protective gel then sprinkled some fire accelerants on my hand and then set it on fire just to see how long I could hold on to it,”.

Iyoho confessed he took up such challenging roles once he got tired of acting “romantic roles.”

    Crazy but not record breaking.
    Next time, go try wrestle with a Lion. Just hope you will still be breathing air after that.

    I take a stroll…

    Please oh, the manner the incident was reported on social media made traumatic. Next time, let them let us know it was make believe. I didn’t eat for two days. I was praying and acting faith by telling my colleagues it can’t be real. Please oh, let wisdom guide us all.
