We Were Feeding From Hand To Mouth During Nollywood Film Shoots – Kanayo O Kanayo Narrates (Video)

Kanayo O Kanayo says filmmakers once had to rent meals for movie shoots in Nollywood.

In an Instagram post, the film star recalled the difficulties that marked his early days in the movie industry.

“When I saw this, I remembered when we started this career with the NTA,” the Nollywood star said, holding up a piece of meat.

“This is props. If you ever ate it at the time, you’ve eaten your artist fee. It was rented from the canteen.”

In 1992, Kanayo had his acting debut in ‘Living in Bondage’, a two-part film today regarded as one of the earliest successes in Nigeria’s film production history.

The Imo-born actor would go on to star in over 100 movies.

Kanayo, in September 2020, ventured into the legal profession to fulfil his long-time dream of becoming a lawyer.

The actor had earlier made the news after he hit back at critics who taunted him for playing ritual roles in films.

“What’s the link between Kanayo O Kanayo and the role he played as Nicholas? There are certain questions people ask you all the time such that it looks as if these people don’t think,” he had said.

“Let gossipers be. They should go educate themselves. Even among Jesus’ disciples, Luke was a doctor. They all had what they were doing before they were called.

“You take up a role and interpret the script so well, only for viewers to ask if you truly do money rituals. What’s one’s business with that? What people should understand is I have a profession.”
