Nobody Can Take My Place In Nollywood- Mike Ezuruonye Boast

Give it to the multiple award winning actor,Mike Ezuruonye. He is indeed very talented and has a knack for roles interpretation.He has in a short while rose to be added to the A-list actors in Nollywood with over 70 movies to his credit.In a recent interview with Sun Newspaper,the proud father of one revealed that no actor can actually take the position of another, thus no one can take his place in the Nigeria movie industry.
“I have said it many times, there is nothing like taking anybody’s position. In science, we were taught that one star in the sky is bigger than the whole earth; so it is in Nollywood,so it is in the African art. You have so much
space; all you have to do is pitch your own tent.You cannot take away those icons. You cannot take away Ramsey Nouah out of the movie industry. You cannot have Nollywood without a Ramsey, you cannot have the African movie industry without a Rita Dominic, you cannot know about Nollywood without having a Joke Silva or Olu Jacobs or an Nkem Owoh. All these people are iconic, you cannot take
their place – it’s just not possible.
It is like a farmyard, just come and pitch your own tent so that people will now know that it is you, and you’re an icon for what you represent.”
The fair complexioned cute dude also went down memory lane to recall what his growing up days was like.“I don’t like talking about that, but I want to believe that I was born by parents who could afford certain amenities. And of course, they were disciplinarians. They also taught me
self-belief.My dad always says: ‘always believe in yourself, always put your head up anywhere you are to answer your name’. And that has always driven me because even as an upcoming actor I was never scared; I
respected my seniors, I respected the
established stars and I always had a good thing about that.”

Before anyone could attain success in life, he or she must go through certain challenges,Mike Ezuruonye is not an exception. He tells his own story.
