Ngozi Nwosu Explains What It Means To Play Drug Addict’s Mother In Upcoming Film

Ngozi Nwosu on what it means to play drug addict's mother | fab.ng

Ngozi Nwosu is a veteran Nigerian actress with a career spanning decades. A household name among Nollywood fans, she’s not just an actress but also a producer with a filmography boasting dozens of titles. Nwosu shot to fame with her role in the landmark 1992 movie, Living in Bondage, which is considered a pivotal film in the rise of Nollywood. Since then, she has continued to make waves in the industry.

Her latest project is a movie titled “Broken Portrait,” which tackles the sensitive and timely issue of drug addiction within a family. Nwosu takes on the role of Ezinne Idahosa, the mother grappling with her child’s addiction.

In a recent interview, she opened up about the film’s powerful and emotional impact, especially due to its subject matter. She also delved into the mental preparation she underwent to embody her character effectively.

“The story is so emotional. In fact, at some point during the shoot, I had to take a moment for myself. It’s a story that will have you fully immersed,” she said.

Ngozi Nwosu revealed it was the film’s unique portrayal of drug addiction that drew her to the project.

“First, it was the storyline, I loved it and I knew I could do it, I took it. Then it was the uniqueness of the story. It is told differently. There are so many stories on issues like this but this one stands out.”

Before her success in movies like “Living in Bondage,” Ngozi Nwosu became a household name playing the character Peaceful Peace in the popular 1990s soap opera “Fuji House of Commotion.” Looking back at her career, Nwosu acknowledges that Nollywood has gone through a lot of changes since those early days.

“Nollywood has improved tremendously. We do have some problems though. For example, a lot of people who are not supposed to be producers are now producers. Everybody is after the money. Once there’s money in their hands, they want to make a film.”

Nwosu also argued that prioritizing profit over artistic merit has led to a saturated industry with fewer talented actors. However, she believes “acting is a lovable career. Sometimes you’re emotionally linked to the characters you play but you have a job and must deliver.”

Ngozi Nwosu, promoting her upcoming film “Broken Portrait,” expressed empathy for those battling drug addiction and their families. She emphasized the importance of parental vigilance in spotting and addressing concerning behaviour in children. Nwosu, a veteran of family dramas, also mentioned her selective approach to choosing roles.

“The story has to work for me. The role I am required to play is another thing. Then, the money. Sometimes the money isn’t such a focus for me if the story is excellent. That is why I accepted to be in Broken Portrait,” she said.

Deyemi Okanlawon Advises Skit Makers Hoping To Go Into Acting

Deyemi Okanlawon Advises Skit Makers Hoping To Act | fab.ng

Deyemi Okanlawon is a Nollywood actor. He recently appeared on the Echoo Room podcast. During the podcast, he talked about social media skit makers. These are people who make short, funny videos for social media platforms.

Some of these skit makers want to become professional actors. Okanlawon had advice for them. He said they need to work very hard to achieve their goals.

The podcast host asked Okanlawon what he thought about skit makers using their videos to enter the acting industry. Okanlawon responded by stressing two important things. He said perseverance is crucial. He also said hard work is necessary.

Okanlawon believes that becoming a successful actor requires more than just making social media videos. He suggests that aspiring actors must put in extra effort to make their dreams come true.

He began, 

“If you’re ever trying to do anything different from the norm, if you’re known for something and you’re trying to do something different, it’s going to be difficult.”

“Nobody is going to readily roll over and allow you; I’ve learned that the hard way. So if anyone finds themselves in that situation, what I would suggest is to just keep that vision alive and keep working towards it,” Deyemi added.

Thinking back on his career…

Deyemi Okanlawon remembered a period when he kept getting cast as the bad guy in movies. Instead of getting discouraged, he saw it as a chance to show everyone he could play all kinds of roles, not just villains.

He explained, 

“There was a time in my career when I was the bad boy of Nollywood; I was the villain and I saw it but I didn’t particularly like it. I wanted to play the loverboy, the good guy or the pastor, but they were giving me the villain.”

He also said that by doing this, directors finally realized he wasn’t limited to playing bad guys.

“I said to myself, ‘This is the opportunity that I have’ to maximise this opportunity and so I took every villain that was ever asked to play and I made them so different and still so believable. They tried to put me in a box but I made sure I painted the box differently and I worked with what I had until people started to realise that I could do more,” he narrated.

The actor advised others facing the same problem. He said to stay strong and keep working towards your dreams.

“I think that anyone who finds themselves in a situation where they feel like the path where they want to be is not readily available, I think they need to put in the extra work and it will happen,” Deyemi concluded.
