– According to the actor, he usually plays roles like that of a gateman, houseboy or gardener
Popular Nigerian actor, Hafiz Oyetoro aka Saka, recently spoke on how it has been in the movie industry with Legit.ng’s reporter, Adeoye Adewunmi.
In the phone interview which took place on January 12, the comic actor touched on how he had been able to handle advances from women and how forthcoming they were.
According to him, his roles in movies helped greatly in reducing the advances he got from women.
He explained that he usually played the roles of a gardener, gateman and houseboy and not a fine boy; hence, ladies do not give him more attention.
Oyetoro, however, added that he also got help from God because one could not do away with the female gender in the industry.
In his words:
“I think the flow of women to my side is very low because of the roles I play and I don’t play fine boy— I play gardener, house boy, gateman etc. that will not attract so much attention.
“Let me be frank with you, God is taking control in dealing with ladies’ advances.
“Look! Ladies are also part of our business and one has to be very careful when handling situations of ladies.
“So, to the glory of God, I have been able to control it. I have a lot of friends who are females. But then, there is nothing really even though temptation comes sometimes. To the glory of God, one has been able to resist such temptation.”
The actor also spoke further in the interview about how he positively affected the comedy industry.
Saka said he advocated for the institutionalisation of a union to regulate pricing in the industry.
He explained that everything would be well with the industry if there was a good and forward-thinking leader.
Oyetoro gave words of encouragement to colleagues even as he beseeched them on good packaging in terms of quality content as well as assuring them that Nigeria will be better.
“Once we have a very strong union that can regulate the pricing of practitioners in the industry, it will be better.
“If we have a leader that has good interest in the entertainment industry, it will be better because the practitioners will make a lot of money from it if the industry flourishes.
“But things are getting better. Some banks and organizations are interested in the industry now and they are trying to do things that will make the practitioners to be more comfortable financially.
“Nigeria will be better. Let us work harder. Let us get more informed. Let us look into our content very well. Packaging is also very important. It is the good content that we can package.
“We should not be afraid of hunger. Let us raise ourselves well. I believe situation will change and everything will be better.”
