Movie lovers must have noticed that Uti Nwachukwu no longer appears in movies, unlike what obtained in the past. The last time he featured in a movie, Mummy Dearest 2, was last July.
While chatting with Sunday Scoop, the winner of Big Brother Africa 5 revealed why he stopped acting for a while now.
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 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,” he added.

#EndSARS: Toke Makinwa Reacts To Lagos Curfew
Popular OAP, Toke Makinwa, has reacted to the Lagos state curfew imposed by Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu. The media personality believes it is not a sensible action to take.
Her reason is that power will be given back to the police whom the protesters have been fighting against, adding that the government is operating a sick system.
Taking to Twitter, she writes:
“The government, the sick system, how can you announce a curfew when people are already out? What happens to those who can’t get home before 4? You’ll give power back to the police we are fighting against? Make it make sense #EndSARS”
