Uti Nwachukwu rarely makes appearances in movies and he has a reason for this: acting doesn’t pay much and he is not ready to spend the rest of his life doing something that doesn’t improve his bank account.

Speaking with Punch, the Big Brother Africa winner got candid, saying he is now doing TV presenting and show hosting, as these pay much better.

“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,” the former model said, adding, “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.”

Asked if he would still appear in movies, the actor said it would be just as a sort of hobby. “Acting would just be a hobby because honestly, producers can’t afford to pay what I want to earn,”
he said.

He continued, “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.”

Uti Nwachukwu also addressed the raging question about his status; why he is not yet married.

He said, “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.”

Uti Nwachukwu sure is one candid fellow, don’t you think?

The ONLY thing that pays in Nigeria is being a CORRUPT POLITICIAN.

And you DO NOT need any ACTING SKILLS to be CORRUPT.

You just need to be GREEDY!!!
