Legendary Nollywood actor Bob-Manuel Udokwu celebrated his 60th birthday recently and received good wishes from colleagues in the entertainment industry, fans, and the general public.

Bob-Manuel, who is now a politician following his appointment by Governor Charles Soludo of Anambra State as Special Adviser on Entertainment, Leisure, and Tourism, gained prominence as a Nollywood actor.

During his birthday celebration, Bob-Manuel talked about his legacy, stating:

“My greatest legacy would be to impact so much on humanity, not just younger generations, humanity that people will always look at me and say Bob-Manuel was different in a positive way.”

The “Living In Bondage” actor has won the hearts of many with his acting prowess, but few are aware of his musical talent.


Talking about his venture into music, Bob-Manuel said:

“I am also into music, people don’t know, two-three years ago I produced a 6 track reggae album by Orits Wiliki that has not been released and just last week I did another version of Anambra state anthem reggae version, maybe what people should watch out for is the reggae side of me.”

Bob-Manuel is not the only Nollywood actor who has also tried his hands at music. The likes of Jim Iyke, Tonto Dikeh, Patience Ozokwor (Mama G), John Okafor (Mr. Ibu), Nkem Owoh (Osuofia), and more have also tried music.

It remains to be seen what Bob-Manuel has for us in the Nigerian music world, which is taking over the globe.

Do you think he would be successful with music?
