Kenneth Okolie: I Don’t Shun Low-Budget Movies
Ever since he emerged as Mr. Nigeria in 2010, Kenneth Okolie has gone on to have a great movie career. The actor has appeared in quite a number of big – budget movies such as The Royal Hibiscus Hotel, Gbomo Gbomo Express, among others. However, some people have also accused the actor of snubbing producers of movies that weren’t big budget.
Okolie dismissed this claim in a chat with Sunday Scoop. He said, “I don’t have any specific consideration before choosing scripts. Once the storyline is good and the script moves me, I would accept, whether it is a small – budget or big -budget movie. There are some small movies that I have done and there are big movies that I have considered as well. I always like to support people so that they can also be of help to me in the future when it’s time for my own project.”
Noting that he does not have the best performance, Kenneth said, “I put my whole heart in all the movies I ’ve been involved in. I don’ t have any particular one that stands out. I always make sure I deliver on every performance .”
Funsho Adeolu: Why Yoruba Actors Don’t Have Six-packs
Despite the fact that many English-speaking actors spend hours in the gym in order to maintain toned biceps and six-packs, It’s not uncommon to see Yoruba actors touting huge patches on movie sets, without a care in the world.
In a recent chat with Saturday Beats, popular actor, Funsho Adeolu, said most English- speaking actors had a six – pack because they are not really actors but models.
“They have a lot of time to do exercises. They are models and not really actors; I am not joking. A busy actor would only think of his health and do the normal exercise to keep fit. What am I using a six – pack for? I want to dress and be seen as a role model.
“In the Yoruba- speaking movie setting, when you get to a particular age, you would not be given the role of a small boy so I do not need a six-pack. By the time you keep a six-pack, it gets to a point where it turns to a nonsense pack because they would not use it again. The only thing is to live a healthy life.
“When you see that you are getting obese, work on it. I used to be a model but I did not have a six-pack. I learned taekwondo as well. I am not saying having a six-pack is bad or that it is bad to look nice. If I have to take a picture, I can easily tuck in my tummy.
