Why Kenneth Okonkwo Is Worried Ahead Of The Elections
Veteran Nollywood actor, Kenneth Okonkwo who recently declared his political ambition is currently worried and the reason is not far fetched.
The Enugu State born popular actor is not in a good mood not because he's no longer getting scripts as an actor, but simply because the character he played in that foremost movie, Living in Bondage, is seriously posing a big challenge to him.
Kenneth opened up that 'Andy' has really overshadowed his real names. He said that after playing “Andy” in that classic movie, people hardly know him any more as Kenneth Okonkwo.
This, he said, has become a very big problem to him, even as he has declared his intention to go into politics. “I will have to sensitize the voters and make sure that they are familiar with the name Kenneth Okonkwo and not Andy before the general election.”
Kenneth joined the long list of Nigerian entertainers venturing into politics, after he picked up the People's Democratic Party, PDP, nomination form during the week.
He wants to represent the people of Nsukka/Igboeze South Federal Constituency in the House of Representatives in 2015.
After obtaining his form, excited actor posted on his online campaign site: “Join me in thanking God for assisting me obtain my nomination form of our great party PDP to contest for the House of Representatives to represent Nsukka/ Igboeze South Federal Constituency. To Him be all the glory.”
The actor who is also a lawyer expressed optimism that he will defeat his opponents at the polls.
Kenneth was brought to limelight following the role he played as 'Andy' in the movie, Living in Bondage, released in 1992.
