Popular Nollywood actor, Nonso Diobi, has opened up about the reason behind his long absence from the Nigerian entertainment scene.
The 46-year-old actor, who was a prominent figure in the film industry for over a decade and starred in several blockbuster movies before taking a long hiatus, shared this in a recent interview with HipTV.
He explained that he took time off to acquire more knowledge and expand his skills in order to bring something new and exciting to his fans.
Speaking further, Nonso said he has transitioned from acting to filmmaking, directing and producing his own movies, stating that he currently has two movies in the works.
In his words,
“So basically I put it this way. I always take time off to acquire more knowledge, to become something else in entertainment, and also to keep giving my fans what they want. And basically that’s why I’ve been off the scene for a while and I am coming back with a bang.
“Right now, I have two movies in the works and I will be making it known to the public pretty soon. At the moment, I can officially tell you that I am a filmmaker also, not just the regular Nonso Diobi movie star that you know.
“So I’m also into directing now. I’m producing my own movies, and very soon, the fans will really understand why I took some time off. Because entertainment is my life.”
