Well, in my own opinion, Nollywood is the best worldwide LOL. Not the best actually, but definitely one of the best in the world. You and I can’t deny the fact that we have enjoyed the diverse entertaining and morally packaged movies it has offered over the years.
Obviously, our dear Nollywood is endowed with a large number of talents, who have worked tirelessly to advance their efforts over the years. And definitely majority of them are still very relevant in the industry e.g. Olu Jacobs, Pete Edochie, Segun Arinze etc.
Same applies to the music industry, where we’ve enjoyed the mesmeric displays of the likes of Shina Peters, Charley boy, Ebenezer Obey among others. However some of these stars went through thick and thin just to make sure their services are socially embraced but no one cares what you’ve been through or what you are going through, until you get through.
Does these people actually think we are care-free towards the future of politics in Nigeria? Wouldn’t have bought your CDs if I knew you had this political ambition? So u wan carry money wey I take help ur career go invest for politics abi’? You want to enjoy the social lifestyle of foreign influential celebrities, yet you can’t afford to emulate their tradition of staying loyal to the game that fed them right from the onset. I can’t imagine watching the likes of P-Diddy, Jay-Z or Dr. Drey declare political intentions? Yet most of our stars don’t even match their standards in many aspects.
Funny enough, majority of these our entertainers don’t even enjoy a stable marriage or a happy home. Single parents abound everywhere in the industry. The question now is how can you rule over a society when you can’t successfully run the affairs of your own family- the smallest unit of the society? A good attempt to further destabilize an already destabilized nation right? You can’t perfectly serve two gods without hurting yourself.
If you guys really intend giving back to the community as you claim in your interviews, there are better ways to do that without going into politics. You can emulate 2face Idibia or Kanu Nwankwo and the likes but sorry to say, your political ambitions, just like those before you, are self-motivated, greedy and greed breeds corruption. This article is however not published to discourage the reader from making his decision during the forthcoming general elections!
