These days, hardly will you see a movie of Nollywood stars without the Fuji icon, Abass Akande Obesere, popularly known as ‘New Alhaji Agba 1’, being featured.
But the popular fuji artiste has said he does not know why he has suddenly become the most sought after Fuji artiste who almost top Nollywood actors want on their set.
Speaking in a chat with R during the past week, Obesere said he has lost count on how many movies he has featured in the last few months.
According to him, “My brother, let me be sincere with you, I have lost count. One of the top Nollywood actors (names withheld) just left my house now, and I have given them a date. “I pray I meet up because other actors want me on set everyday.”
Asked what they saw in him, he replied I don’t really know why I have become Nollywood’s new bride. But I know they must have seen something in me because two years ago, they never called me. Maybe I act better. It’s Lord’s doing anyway.”
He, however, said the fact that he had been enjoying acting does not mean he would remain there permanently.
“It is not as if I am quitting music for acting. Music is my calling but as an entertainer, you must be versatile and creative.”
