‘I’ll continue acting even in my 90s’ – Kanayo O Kanayo

Nollywood veteran actor, Anayo Modestus Onyekwere better known as Kanayo O. Kanayo has said he wishes to continue acting even when he turns 90.

The 62-year-old who also doubles as a lawyer stated this in the teaser of the upcoming episode of The Honest Bunch podcast, co-hosted by Nedu, Husband Material, and Deit Cole.

He expressed concern that the eagerness of untalented individuals, particularly women, to enter acting poses a threat to the film industry.

He said,

“Many girls are desperate to act. You don’t come to Nollywood to learn how to act. Acting is in-built. If it’s not in you, go and sell crayfish.

“Let us run some people out of the [movie] industry. I want a situation where at 70, 75, 80, 90, I will still be acting”

Shockingly, Kanayo O. Kanayo also claimed that Nollywood has been overtaken by drug abuse and homosexuality.

Kanayo started his acting career in 1982, appearing in productions by the Nigerian Television Authority. He made his debut in movies in 1992 with the film “Living in Bondage.” He has starred in over 200 movies.
