CELEBRITY GIST: Veteran Nollywood actor Charles Izuchukwu Okafor who is one of the gentlemen in the industry, although a little bit scarce lately, has called on his colleagues not to drink or smoke. Your thoughts on this?
The actor who recently revealed things about himself during a chat encouraged his colleagues to quit smoking or drinking if they want to take acting as a professional calling.
These were his words:
“I neither drink nor smoke. Basically, i want to make it clear to my colleagues in the industry who are still into drinking and smoking, that the actor’s major tools are his voice and body. You need to exercise the body to keep it in form, to keep it fit. You need to drill your voice and cigarette smoking and alcohol do not compliment this exercises. That is if you want to take acting as a professional calling, from which you will earn your living and attend to your socio-economic needs” – Charles Okafor.
Charles hasn’t been active in the industry due to his new vocation as a minister of God.
Do you agree with Charles Okafor that Actors are not suppose to drink or smoke?
