Popular Nollywood actor, Bolanle Ninalowo, has opened up on why and how he converted from Islam to Christianity.
Ninalowo who has played diverse roles made this known in a recent instagram live chat.
“Although I have only gone to church once in my entire life, I read the bible a lot. My name is Azeez; I was born into a staunch Muslim family. When I was troubled and frustrated, it was the bible that saved me, as my parents and family members couldn’t. So, I picked up the bible and it became my life manual.”
Reacting to the rate at which Nollywood veterans go suddenly sick and broke, Ninalowo says the actors are to blame and not the government or lack of structure in the industry. “The blame should not be on Nollywood because it doesn’t have structure, it should be on the individual. You are not a victim of circumstances; you are a victim of the choices you made. A lot of them are carried away. They don’t have retirement plans.”
