Nollywood actor Nonso Diobi has finally disclosed the cause of his prolonged absence from the film industry.
For more than ten years, the movie star was regarded as one of the brightest stars in the Nigerian film business. He gained a following across the nation and abroad as a result of his roles in multiple box office hits.
But he took a hiatus from performing, leaving his admirers wondering why he hadn’t appeared in anything for so long.
In a recent interview with Hip Tv, Nonso Diobi gave an explanation for why he took some time off and disappeared from the movie industry.
He claims that he left the movie set to review acting techniques. He disclosed his aspirations to work as a director, actor, and film producer.
“So basically I put it this way. I always take time off to acquire more knowledge, to become something else in entertainment, and also to keep giving my fans what they want. And basically that’s why I’ve been off the scene for a while and I am coming back with a bang. Right now, I have two movies in the works and I will be making it known to the public pretty soon.
At the moment, I can officially tell you that I am a filmmaker also, not just the regular Nonso Diobi movie star that you know. So I’m also into directing now. I’m producing my own movies, and very soon, the fans will really understand why I took some time off. Because entertainment is my life.”*
