Says ‘I Don’t Know Why I’m Nollywood’s New Bride’
These days, hardly will you see a movie without the Fuji icon, Abass Akande Obesere, popularly known as ‘New Alhaji Agba 1’ being featured in it.
But the popular musician has said he does not know why he has suddenly become the most sought after Fuji artiste by filmmakers.
Speaking in an exclusive chat with celebrity journalist, Olakunle Taiwo at the weekend, Obesere said he has lost count on the number of movies he has featured in the last few months.
According to him, “My brother, let me be sincere with you, I have lost count. One of the top Nollywood actors (name withheld) just left my house now, and I have given them a date. I pray I meet up because other actors want me on set like every day.
Asked what they saw in him, he replied “I don’t really know why I have become Nollywood new bride. But I know they must have seen something in me because two years ago, they never called me. Maybe I act better. It’s the Lord’s doing anyway.”
He, however, said enjoying acting does not mean he would remain there permanently.
“It is not as if I am quitting music for acting. Music is my calling but as an entertainer you must be versatile and creative at all time.”
