While chatting with Sunday Scoop, the winner of Big Brother Africa 5 revealed why he stopped acting for a while now, and also revealed he is yet to see the right person to settle down with.

He said, “I haven’t been in the country, but I am back now. I took a break from acting because it doesn’t pay much and I am not ready for that kind of life. I don’t want to pretend about it; so, I am only focusing on what brings greater remuneration, which is television presenting and hosting of events.

Acting would just be a hobby because honestly, producers can’t afford to pay what I want to earn. But I will not stay away from movies totally; I will pick only exceptional movies instead of featuring in all the ones I am invited to partake in. I don’t have so much time for little money. I am not here to pretend all is well. I am in the industry to make money; I am not in the industry to play.

He also dismissed a claim that he did not attend Yomi Casual’s wedding.

According to him, he did show up at the ceremony but spent only a short period because he had other things to attend to.

He, however, said despite the fact that his colleagues were getting married, he was not in a rush to do same.

I will marry at the right time and marriage is not a competition. Once I find the right person, nothing will prevent me from getting married. I am an adult and my parents are educated. Therefore, they can’t force me to get married.
