Nollywood Celebrity Gist — Saint Obi who recently revealed he is going into music in an interview with Daily Sun has opened up the reason why he left acting.
Here are the veteran actor’s words in quote:
“As one grows older, you realize that you do not need to be in all the movies. If you have been following my career as years went by, from doing 10 movies in a year, i reduced to 6. I later reduced to 1 per year because i felt that it is not how many times you appear in a movie, but how well you act.”
“People call me all the time to come and feature in their movies but i always decline. My reasons are that as you move around, you have other aspirations and other opportunities appear. In Igbo parlance, you don’t watch a masquerade display in just one spot; you have to move around to get total view. Any smart person will take advantage of any opportunity that comes.”
“There are a million and one businesses out there that aligns with one’s profession. The Dangotes of this world do a million businesses; they don’t stick to one business and become who they are today.”
“I didn’t stop acting because jobs stopped coming but because i needed to do other things. However, am still involved in the industry even though it is mostly behind the camera.”
