Life Changing Things From Kanayo O Kanayo’s Feature On ‘With Chude’

Kanayo O. Kanayo (KOK) is inarguably one of many biggest men to ever come out of Nollywood. He has been within the business because the very starting, showing in sequence like The Village Headmaster and the enduring film that’s credited as the beginning of Nollywood, Living in Bondage.

The veteran sat with Chude Jideonwo on the third episode of ‘With Chude’ on Africa Magic Urban on Sunday to talk about life at 60, his childhood, political runs, and even how he’s stayed related in an business like Nollywood for about 40 years.

Here are some important issues the award-winning actor talked about in his interview:

1. Attitude to work: No one is better-suited to train somebody how finest to work than a man who has constructed and maintained a profession for about 40 years amidst dabbling into other industries. KOK used to personal a PR company in Surulere and have become a lawyer at 58 years outdated, all whereas sustaining his place in Nollywood. He shared, “What I can tell you is I’m doing my job without looking at the rewards and awards. If you have your mind set that you want to be a star, what if you are not a star at the end of the day. So, keep doing your job, pray to remain relevant, and improve yourself educationally.”

2. You want education to be nice, even in Nollywood: Kanayo has 5 tutorial levels, diplomas in Mass Communication and Law, Philosophy and Political Science and his most up-to-date, a Law. He shared that he as soon as told somebody who reached out to him with a GCE certificates that he wasn’t certified to be an actor. He believes nobody is certified to be an actor till they end at least one diploma and earn a Bachelors diploma.

3. Chase your goals till you possibly can’t anymore: Kanayo went again to school at over 50 years outdated to chase his lifelong dream of changing into a lawyer and was referred to as to the Nigerian Bar at 58. He shared, “I finished my studies in the law in 2018 at the University of Abuja, and then I gained admission into The Nigerian Law School. For that one year in law school, I couldn’t keep acting. Most lecturers will ask you, ‘did you come for popularity or to study’. I have always wanted to be a lawyer because what I do on TV is what a lawyer does in court, but under different auspices. There is a stage, and if he fails to speak well, he loses the case, and you go to jail.”

4. You can’t actually be a failure at one thing that taught you classes: It’s straightforward for myopic individuals to call Kanayo a ‘failed politician’, however the man doesn’t imagine he’s. He ran for a seat within the House of Representatives in 2010/2011 and 2017/2018, and lost both occasions, however he realized classes about politics in Nigeria. He said, “My first contest was in 2010, when I tried to get the ticket for the House of Representatives, but it was a good experience. Everybody brings his big bucket to obtain from you. Here, you must carry garden egg to the men who should support you instead of them giving you kolanut. If we keep going this way, there is no future for politics in Nigeria because you have to borrow money or sell your house to serve the people. So immediately you get into office, the first thing you want to do is to get the money back. That’s the problem we have.”

5. Child labour can improve the chances of children committing suicide: As a baby, Kanayo used to dig pit latrines and later sell Agidi, and after some time, he began to have suicidal ideas. After digging pit latrines in his village for some time, his brother took him to Enugu, however issues didn’t actually get higher. He told Chude, “My brother withdrew me from the village and took me to Enugu, where his wife used to sell Agidi. I would trek from New Haven to Abakpa. One day, I got to that Abakpa bridge, and as a small boy with heavy wares on the head, one mind said to me, ‘why don’t you jump in and end it?’ I managed to cross that bridge and sold all the Agidi to avoid heavy beatings. It wasn’t a friendly childhood, but I had to contribute to the economy of the house.”
