For those wondering why his face has been scarce in movies, popular act and Nollywood’s lover boy actor, Emeka Ike, has finally let the cat out of the bag.
Emeka recently in an interview said he’s presently angry with Nollywood. And as a result, he’s temporarily quitting acting in a bid to ‘strategize’.
According to him, he’s not happy with the industry at the moment which has made him to withdraw all his movies from the market.
Emeka says he doesn’t want to be associated with the ‘decay’ going on in the industry hence, he prefers to ‘stand out’.
He also revealed that he’s coming out with his own label, Emeka Ike Production and that marketing of his movies will be done under the label. And that any transaction as touching him as an actor will be done under his new label which separates him from dealing with Nollywood.
“I have not quit Nollywood in the real sense of the word. What I did was to withdraw all my movies from the market, and I mean all the movies that are related with Emeka Ike…and the reason is not far fetched. I am angry with what is going on in the industry. My conscience would not allow me to go on with the decay in the industry.
So, I feel that was the best thing to do, to dissociate myself from the problem and stand out! So, henceforth, any Nollywood movie would not involve Emeka Ike. Rather, I want to market all my movies on the label of Emeka Ike Production. If you want to deal with me as an actor, you have to work with me under the label. That clearly separates me from Nollywood.”
