Why I Left Nollywood For Beer Business – Actor Emeka Enyiocha
Nollywood actor, Emeka Enyiocha, who sway in the Nigerian movie industry and was a poster boy of some sort, left us all in suspense after he disappeared when his ovation seemed loudest.
Saturday Beats caught up with the movie star who had been missing in action for over seven years, and he revealed why he left the movie industry.
“I left the industry because I got married and I started having kids. Immediately I got married, I started having kids and I had more responsibilities to deal with. I had to be closer to my family and kids so that they would not call me uncle when they see me. Marriage and family slowed me down. It definitely slows someone down except you do not want to take care of your family. I tried to combine marriage with work because I was doing my production.
While I was away from the industry, I was into partnership with a close friend of mine. We did productions together. We did ‘The Patriot,’ which is a fight against fake drugs and adulterated products.
