Nollywood Actor Turned Politician, Augustine Ejike Accuses Producers Of Being Diabolic

Nollywood actor, Augustine Ejike Metu, popularly known as Methuselah, has featured in so many stage and film productions, and has also made tremendous contributions towards the growth of the industry.

He acted 'Rattle Snake,' 'Up to Rush,' 'Farewell to Babylon,' 'The Night Fall' and others. Though, there was no money in the movie industry in those days, his joy is that he is rated among the fore-runners in Nollywood.

In a recent interview, the ace actor now politician, attributed his long lay-off due to some producers who took pictures of actors to native doctors to know whether their faces will sell films.

'As someone who is not diabolical, I was not comfortable with that. So I decided to step aside,' he said.

According to him, producers were so greedy that that they want to release many films in a week.

'At a point producers became lords. They were so greedy and myopic that they released 10 films in a week with the same faces. Infact, they continued to repeat films. And being someone who is not too desperate in the things of life, I did not need to lick the ass of the producers,' he added.
