Nollywood actor turned politician, Augustine Ejike Metu, aka Methuselah in a recent interview made some shocking revelations about some movie producers in the industry.
The actor who used to be popular revealed why he stopped acting saying:
“It got to a point in the industry where some producers took pictures of actors to native doctors to know whether their faces will sell films. As someone who is not diabolical, I was not comfortable with that. So, I decided to step aside. Also, at a point, producers became lords. They were so greedy and myopic that they released ten films in a week with the same faces.
In fact, they continued to repeat these films. And being someone that is not too desperate in the things of life, I did not need to lick the ass of the producers.
Meanwhile, I was already into clearing and forwarding business before becoming an actor and I was very much engaged in my business. So, I decided to face my clearing and forwarding business and other things. But that does not mean I stopped acting entirely.
He has featured in movies like ‘Rattle Snake,’ ‘Up to Rush,’ ‘Farewell to Babylon,’ ‘The Night Fall’ and others and at the time was rated one of the top actors in Nollywood.
