Thebrouhaha raging in the midst of the small sized actors in the Nollywoodindustry could no longer be contented as one of them, Ibro Ibrahim Musa hastaking the showdown attitude which he receives from two Nollywood actors,Chinedu Ikedieze and Osita Iheme popularly known as Aki N?Ukwa to the public.
Accordingto the Benue state born actor who has so far featured in over sixty moviesdisclosed that the duo believe that his entrance into the Nollywood industrywould bring down their longtime built reputation and fame to nothing, nowenraging them to ponder hatreds on him as the surviving actor. ?They believe Iwant to take over from them, while that is not my intention. The industry is sobig that it can contain whatever good talent anybody is coming with. I havereceived series of report from people, both on pages of newspaper on how theyare biffing me,? he said.
Onif he is muttering intentions of hitting the formers back following the levelof disrespect he receives from them, he said, ?Not that I don?t care, but whatkeeps me going is the talent in me. Your talent is the determining factor, thelevel prominence and feed back you receive from your fans will tell you if youare trying or not. So, I keep telling them to take it easy, because they havetheir own fans while I have mine. I see and take them as my brothers?.
Havingmade his sojourn into the Nollywood industry in 2001, Ibrahim admitted that hisachievement could be measured with that of when the entertainment industry tookits place in the country. For him, Nollywood has changed his life, as he couldboldly testify to it, ?the kind of people I go out and hang out with now aremostly top business friends. Sometimes I wonder if I would have achieved theposition I have gotten in life without being an actor,? he asserted.
