When you think of Nollywood actor, Ernest Asuzu what comes to mind is a flamboyant youngster who lives life on the fast lane. The role interpreter had some life threatening experiences that changed his life. Ernest is now born again and has made some salient confessions about Nollywood
According to him, most Nollywood practitioners depend heavily on charms for a solution to their challenges.
Asuzu, who suffered the stroke a few years ago, said he intends to become a Pastor and preach the gospel to his colleagues in order to ensure Nollywood as an industry gets closer to God.
“I will either be a pastor or prophet. But I am begging them (Nollywood actors and actress) to leave evil alone. Evil does not pay anybody. They inflicted me with stroke but I did not feel I had a stroke for one day.
“So, if God chooses me as his vessel, I will say ‘Here am I, send me’. I want Nollywood to get closer to God because the time we are now is evil.
“I’m not angry but I don’t like the way they treat human beings. What I don’t like about the practitioners is their heavy dependence and trust in charms.
“They should leave charms alone and turn to God, the ultimate for the solution to all their challenges.”
Speaking about the change is bringing back to Nollywood, he said:”What I’m bringing back to Nollywood is concrete change. This is not a political slogan. What I want is for everyone in Nollywood to be God-fearing. I want the industry to know God because I’m a testimony. A lot of practitioners believe in charms, juju and evil, but when you know God, you will know it all and will not have room for doubt and unbelief. I want to bring God back to Nollywood, that’s what I want to accomplish this year”
