On how he started his acting career ;

"Acting for me like I always say, started by chance. It was something that I knew I didn't want to do. Of all the talents that I have, acting was something that I had a consciousness about, and made a conscious decision that I would never go into acting,"

On getting his Tinsel role;

"I got on "Tinsel" shortly after I finished the reality show, Gulder Ultimate Search, which I participated in 2011. I remember I got a call from M-Net studios, from a lady called Uche.

She called me the night that was supposed to be the presentation of the prize, and the unveiling of the ultimate man.

She called me and said she got my number from a colleague of hers who knew me, and he watched me on the show.

She said she would like me to come to the studio to pick up a script to read for a particular character. I was shocked at first, because I'm like "this is M-Net."
