Ugandan Gabriel K moves to explore Nigerian movie industry
Ugandan music act Gabriel Kakuru popularly known as Gabriel K has declared his interest in acting and also vowed to storm the Nigeria movie industry, as he believes Nollywood is no doubt the largest entertainment and movie industry in Africa.
He made this declaration on his social media platforms, where he described the Nollywood as an industry with a lot of talented stars with global recognition. “My aim is to make a difference and possibly take over as one of the best actors out there,” he wrote.
Gabriel is among the few other African artists with a fairly big CV in the entertainment industry having being a presenter, producer and director over the years in Uganda. He started singing at an early stage in life and is becoming a fast-rising sensation and an astute businessman in the entertainment industry.

Speaking further on why he had to switch from music to acting, he said: “I am an all-round entertainer who likes to explore and gain experience from numerous fields. In fact, during my primitive years, I started as an actor, appearing on some family shows like mummy’s favourite, Sunrise and many others in Uganda. This has really helped me to gain the experience so I feel confident I will make it in Nollywood too.”
It would be nice to see what is next for this musician and actor, who seems not ready to slow down on his new acting career has to offer.
