Kate Henshaw Reveals The Man Behind Her Millions (photos)

The Nigerian movie industry has indeed lost great stars who really made the industry what it is especially when it comes to action movies and one of such actor is late J.T Tom West, who was known for movies like Flashback, State of Emergency, Terror and others.

It's about 10 years now since the actor passed away and many have forgotten about him but one actor who still appreciates the role he played in her life is actress cum politician, Kate Henshaw.

The actress while recalling her encounter with the late actor explained that she wouldn't be appreciated today if the actor had not given her an opportunity to display her talent after she had attended an audition he called for back in the days.

In her words, “J.T. Tom West....23 years ago, I was nothing but a green horn as they called me back then. I was inquisitive about the audition you invited me to, had no idea of what to expect. After many weeks, I received a note (there were no mobile phones then) that I should come back and read again for a role. I was still unsure of what this was all about. Long story short, Director Ifeanyi Anyafulu chose me to play the Lead role of OMONO in HINTS MAGAZINE's first ever movie, WHEN THE SUN SETS, the rest they say is history.

“I would not be here, who I am, if not for you. God used you. I will never forget you. Carefree, funny, mischievious. Remember those days in Surulere, Golden Mother restaurant? Segun Arinze remember Jokes Apart. Hmm. Time indeed has flown by. Rest in Peace JT. Sleep well in God's bosom. I celebrate you. Today and Always.”
