Popular Nollywood actor, Ramsey Nouah has revealed that he is quitting acting after being in the field for about 20 years, although he noted that he is not abandoning the movie industry entirely.

Ramsey hinted that he would go into directing.

“I think I’ve had my fair share. To my fans and loved ones, I know they’ll always want to see me on screen but as they say,It’s best to leave when the ovation is loudest.

“I want to leave a very strong legacy. I believe I have left a very strong imprint in that line.

“There’s no possible way you can mention ‘Nollywood’ without mentioning Ramsey Nouah.” Ramsey Nouah said in an interview with nigeriafilms.com.

“I’ll be going behind the scenes. I’ll still be acting a bit here and there, but it will phase out for directing eventually.

“For a while now, I’ve not really been on the screen, and that’s because I don’t want to act just because I want to be on TV.

“I only want to be associated with the kind of movies that are poised to take the industry to another level, which is where we are headed now. Plus, I want to focus on working behind the scenes.”

Ramsey has starred in several movies such as Private Storm, Dangerous Twins, Figurine which won him an award as best actor in a leading role at the AMAA 2010.

Nigerian movie industry you mean?

Well, to me, there is only one movie industry, and that is the Nigerian one. That’s my opinion, of course, because I know a whole lot of people are targeting Hollywood. But for me, I’m not keen on getting into Hollywood. I’m of the opinion that ‘Nollywood’ will get to a point where it will be very big sometime soon. Don’t forget, most of the people targeting Hollywood are doing so because of the pay, and then maybe the fame on a much bigger stage. For me, however, I think the fame I already have on the platform of ‘Nollywood’ suffices.

Are you quitting acting?

I think I’ve had my fair share. To my fans and loved ones, I know they’ll always want to see me on screen, but as they say, it’s best to leave when the ovation is loudest. I want to leave a very strong legacy. I believe I have left a very strong imprint in that line. There’s no possible way you can mention ‘Nollywood’ without mentioning Ramsey Nouah.

So what’s next for you?

Well, I’ll be going behind the scenes. I’ll still be acting a bit here and there, but it will phase out for directing eventually. For a while now, I’ve not really been on the screen, and that’s because I don’t want to act just because I want to be on TV. I only want to be associated with the kind of movies that are poised to take the industry to another level, which is were we are headed now. Plus, I want to focus on working behind the scenes.
