I Didn’t Take A Break From Nollywood Voluntarily, Producers Probably Shunned Me- Tony Umez
Actor Tony Umez has clarified that contrary to the perception he took a break from Nollywood to concentrate on other facets of his life, he never bowed out of the industry voluntary.
He said producers altered the method of their casting and that affected him as they probably prefered younger and fresh faces so they ended up shoving him into obscurity.
He said this in an interview with Ebuka on the TV programme, “Rubbin’ Minds. Tony who seems to have aged considerably also spoke about a wide array of issues concerning the industry.
Meanwhile the death of singer Michael Aboh of Zule Zoo fame has been announced on social media by his partner who formed the music duo with him.
He reportedly collapsed and died this morning while bathing. The late Micahel was a member of Zule Zoo a musical group which he formed with Al-Hassan Ibrahim.
