Actor Charles Okafor Finds Christ

Nollywood veteran actor, Charles Okafor, may have been out of the movie industry for sometime now but his new passion is what is sustaining him.

The actor who was one of the few stars that made the Nigerian home-video sector what it was right from inception, says he has now found the most important thing in his life and that is Jesus Christ.

In a recent interview, Charles Okafor confessed that the reason he has not been very visible in the industry is because he is now a born again Christian and that he cannot serve God and Marmon at the same time.

“I've been lying low for a while because I diverted into advocacy and human-angle films as a consequence of my new found faith. I’m still a career actor and a film maker but I am mindful of the scripts I do.

"A time come in the life of any professional when he seats back and takes stock of his professional issues and the legacy he wants to leave behind from the spiritual standpoint of view. You cannot just do any kind of film anymore if you’re going to be the light to the nations of the world. We must be seen in the context of the things that glorify God in totality.

"You see, you cannot eat your cake and still have it. You cannot serve God and serve Marmon. You must clearly define where you stand. I have put my hands to the plow so I shouldn't look back but that does not remove the fact that I’m still a career actor and film maker,” he said.

Praise the Lord somebody!
