Nollywood actor, Ernest Asuzu has recently got in the news by sharing a testimony of how he has fully recovered from a stroke he suffered in 2015. The popular actor has revealed who was behind his stroke and why he feels that Nollywood is evil.
“I have returned to Nollywood, my first love. But I want God to help me re-establish myself as a good Christian in Nollywood.”
Asuzu, who suffered a stroke a few years ago, said he intends to become a Pastor and preach the gospel to his colleagues in order to ensure Nollywood as an industry gets closer to God.
“I went down with stroke. Before I took ill, I was living large, outgoing and flamboyant; but now I have returned to God and I want to change people’s thinking about actors in Nollywood, because a lot of actors are dying without knowing God”, Asuzu said in an interview with TS Weekend,
He told Sun Newspaper: “I am not a pastor, but I intend to be a pastor, to preach the gospel. I know it is not easy to be a pastor but I tell you if God calls me, I will answer.
“I will either be a pastor or prophet. But I am begging them (Nollywood actors and actress) to leave evil alone. Evil does not pay anybody. They inflicted me with stroke but I did not feel I had stroke for one day.
“So, if God chooses me as his vessel, I will say ‘Here am I, send me’. I want Nollywood to get closer to God because the time we are now is evil.
“I’m not angry but I don’t like the way they treat human beings. What I don’t like about the practitioners is their heavy dependence and trust in charms.
“They should leave charms alone and turn to God, the ultimate for solution to all their challenges.”
