What are your plans for 2023?
I have a lot of movie series coming out, I will be releasing a movie titled ‘Senior man’ and ‘Oga Osas season 3’ and they are going to hit the screens, I have a couple of jobs to roll out as well, by the grace of God, this 2023, I am planning to do a Cinema standard movie.
How does madam react to you being on location many times?
She is human, and there must be complaints, by His grace I’ve been able to strike a balance so the complaints are no longer as they use to be, what I do is, I give attention to the house and also give attention to my work but sometimes the work seems to take longer time than expected but, she understands that aspect because the bills are not smiling.
Being married for 7 years what has marriage taught you?
Marriage has taught me to be patient, more observant and very tolerant, I have also learnt not to react to things quickly, I now think before I talk, marriage will humble you, Marriage will make you more responsible especially when you have kids and you have become their role model, they look up to you. ‘No be how body scratch you, you go scratch am’, we learn every day so, I can say I am still in the learning process.
What is the most trouble you have ever got into?
I think when I was in secondary school, close to the exam period there is a place we usually go to, to read, it is an hospital, so on that faithful day the management rebuked us so we staged a protest, I was shouting at the top of my voice, I never knew my late father was coming behind me until he got to where I was, I noticed somebody was coming closer only to turn and behold my dad I was perplexed I was given the beaten of my life, all other troubles that came after this was a normal challenge we face in our day-to-day activities.
How do you keep fit?
I registered in a gym, and funny enough I managed to go 4 times in a month, due to a tight job schedule, sometimes I go for a walk.
Looking at your appearance one can easily conclude that you are a ladies’ man, how do you ward off a fan that wants to be closer?
First of all, I am a married man, and I respect my wife a lot, so any fan that is coming should know her boundary, but some fans don’t mind, they really wanna get crazy at you and knowingly they step forward many times, usually I smile and walk away, it is not as if they want to get crazy at you but they love you and don’t know how to express themselves to you so they tend to go overboard and sometimes causes a nuisance, at times I take it has it comes but at times I shied away to avoid issues.
How best to avoid a scandal?
Well, it is two ways, the best is to be silent about it, but when it gets serious you might be forced to debunk it, that is when you need to say something when you feel you owe certain people an explanation otherwise silence has been the best way to handle it.
Silent is golden, when it trended today, tomorrow and you don’t comment on it, Netizen tends to forget about it and move on.
What is the most important lesson you have learnt from your dad?
My dad was a man of peace, he taught me to be a man of peace, that is the legacy I want to leave behind, he made me understand that where there is peace there is happiness, and where there is happiness there must be a success, success does not come where there is no peace. I don’t take things too seriously, though I am a serious-minded person, but he taught me to do good without expecting anything in return and always keep my hands clean; don’t do evil to anybody, those words have made me who I am today.
Messages for your fans?
Live love, a big shout out to all my fans out there, I appreciate them for supporting me I am grateful for all the love, subscribing to my channel, supporting my brands, and watching my movies, for some of them that want to be like Baba Rex, they should leave their comfort zone, nothing is happening there. If you want to be an actor? You must stand up to register with the Actor Guild of Nigeria and start with them, if you continue to procrastinate, it will not work.
Who are your favourite music artists?
I love Tu baba, Olamide, Davido, Wizkid, Don Jazzy my Aburo, I love him to the bone, love Michael Adebayo Olayinka, popularly known as Ruger and a whole lot of them.
