I Took A Nude Role Because The Pay Was Right – Actor Benson Okonkwo

Enugu-based, fast-rising Nollywood actor Benson Okonkwo is probably the most talked about in the industry because of his daring roles, which many people, according to him, “continue to wrongly associate with his real life personality.”

  • Talking about the movie that brought you out, there is a particular movie about gays which has gotten you more accusations and criticisms than accolades. Could you talk about it?
I have promised myself that I will no longer talk about the movie. It’s really funny that Nigeria is a country where people attribute an actor’s role to his real life character.
If I’m given a role to play and I played it excellently, does that make me that character in reality? Yet, it is the same Nigerians who will be first to point fingers at those actors that do not act their movie roles well.
It’s quite funny that because I played a gay role then I’m automatically gay. So if I played the role of a police officer, does that makes me one? I just have to thank my fans who repose so much confidence in me, that’s all.
  • Are you saying that you are not truly homosexual like a whole lot of people believe?
My brother, what else do you want me to tell you. Please, I’m very busy.
  • Most of your fans have been asking why you had to star in such a movie, yet you keep denying that you are not gay.
I just told you I was doing my job. Period! Why should I call myself an actor if I can’t play a movie
