  • He's set to return to Nollywood and wants everyone in the industry to be God-fearing.


Nollywood actor, Ernest Asuzu, has been off the scene for a while after battling with stroke but is now set to return to work following a successful recovery.

Asuzu is also on a mission to bring the fear of God into the industry and change people’s perception.

In a recent interview, Asuzu, who is now a born-again Christian, said among other things, that Nollywood is evil.

‘I have returned to Nollywood, my first love. But I want God to help me re-establish myself as a good Christian in Nollywood,’ he said.

‘After the first outing, which I considered a success by worldly standard, I went down with stroke.

‘Before I took ill, I was living large, outgoing and flamboyant; but now I have returned to God and I want to change people’s thinking about actors in Nollywood, because a lot of actors are dying without knowing God.

‘I want to introduce God to Nollywood so that they will know that there’s nothing they can do without God. Look at me now I have a Jeep. If anybody had told me when I was down with stroke that I’d ride a Jeep, I would not believe.’

Asuzu went on to reveal how he got the SUV as well as how he got a stroke in the first place.

‘A man of God in Warri, Delta State blessed me with the car, that’s the car I brought to church today. Isn’t that marvelous? God saw my pain and faith in Him and intervened.

‘The thing that happened to me wasn’t my making; a man got jealous of my rising profile and inflicted me with stroke. I don’t want to emphasise on that. Let God judge the man.

‘I’m glad because I’m not dead yet, when you are dead, that’s when you are gone. Now that I’m alive and back on my feet, it’s the Lord’s doing. I am alive by the intervention of God so I want everyone to know that I’ve given my life to God and my movie life is running and thriving.’

He then says what he wants for everyone after his return to Nollywood is for them to become God-fearing.

‘What I’m bringing back to Nollywood is concrete change. This is not a political slogan. What I want is for everyone in Nollywood to be God-fearing. I want the industry to know God because I’m a testimony.

‘A lot of practitioners believe in charms, juju and evil, but when you know God, you will know it all and will not have room for doubt and unbelief. I want to bring God back to Nollywood, that’s what I want to accomplish this year.’
