Actor, lawyer and politician, Kenneth Okonkwo has created a distinct path for himself in Nollywood. The actor who shot to stardom through the movie ‘Living in bondage’, has said he won’t quit acting for politics, adding that he intends to be an actor for life.
Speaking in a chat with The Nation, he said: ”Thank God acting is a job. One politician in Enugu State said one of his conditions for supporting me is that I must continue acting because he is my fan and the beauty of acting is that it does not have any retirement age. So I am an actor. I cannot say I will never leave it because ‘Never belongs to God.’ So it depends on the will of God but just know that I am an actor for life”.
When asked about his political ambition and if he believes he is going to win whenever he vies for a political ambition, he said he has no fear.
“I have no fear. The slogan is: ‘When Jesus says yes, no man can say No.’ I am going to win by the grace of God if everything is down the way it is supposed to be and I know it will. You may just be talking to the next governor of Enugu State. I have no fear”.
