Why These Nollywood Actors Quit Acting

Nollywood is an industry that has spanned many decades and some Nollywood actors such as Genevieve Nnaji, Ramsey Nouah, Pete Edochie, and many others managed to stay relevant for many decades. However, some Nollywood actors who were huge back in the day are no longer acting and we’re going to explore why. 

Emeka Ike

Nollywood Actors
Emeka Ike stopped acting for a variety of reasons. He was tired of not receiving royalties from DSTV, he hated the fact that many actors used foreign actors when acting, and he was focused on a public leadership tussle with actress, Ibinabo Fiberesima over leadership of the Actor’s Guild of Nigeria, (AGN). 

Nkiru Sylvanus

Nollywood actors
Who can forget the poster girl for tears? For some time, Nkiru Sylvanus dominated the industry with her magnificent tears as she always seemed to be crying in every role she was given. However, the actress hasn’t been appearing on screen lately because, in 2011, she was appointed by the then governor of Imo state, Rochas Okorocha as his Special Assistant on Lagos State Affairs. She later became his Special Adviser on Public Affairs. 

Saint Obi

Nollywood Actors
Obinna Nwafor, known as Saint Obi, used to be featured in many films back in the day such as Last Party, Executive Crime, Festival of Fire, and many others. In 2001, he even produced his first film, Take Me to Maama, which he starred in. However, the actor stopped acting to pursue other businesses. In an interview with Daily Sun, he revealed that “ The Dangotes of this world do a million businesses; they don’t stick to one business and become who they are today. I didn’t stop acting because jobs stopped coming but because I needed to do other things.”

Hanks Anuku

Nollywood
Was there anybody who embodied the “bad boy” role quite like Hanks Anuku? Hanks was the Nollywood poster boy for “gangster” for a long while. However, he soon became the subject of many controversies and distasteful rumors. In 2017, the actor became a Ghanian citizen, taking up the name, Nana Kwame Fifi Kakra and now lives in Ghana. We doubt he will be making a Nollywood comeback anytime soon. 

Charles Okafor

Nollywood Actors
Charles Okafor rose to fame after starring in Nollywood’s horror film, End of The Wicked. The actor went on to star in many other movies such as Abuja Boys, Blood Billionaires, World of Riches, and many others. However, the actor revealed that he has found Jesus Christ and will no longer do things that don’t glorify Him. 
Which of these actors would you like to see make a Nollywood comeback?
