Timini Egbuson reflects on his early acting career
Timini Egbuson, the younger brother of veteran actress Dakore Egbuson, has recently revealed how he felt when he initially entered the Nigerian film industry.
The movie producer, who debuted on M-serial net’s series Tinsel in 2010, revealed the challenges he faced when he first entered the Nollywood industry.
Timini made the revelation during an interview as a guest on “Tea with Taymesan’s podcast,” claiming his sister, Dakore, told him the movie industry isn’t as lucrative as it appears.
Despite the difficulties he faced, he asserted that he realized it was more of a divine direction he received from God.
Read his post below;
“I knew I was not going to do 9-5 because I am very restless. I knew that this waking up in the morning being in traffic, won’t be what it will be. So I started to look for alternatives, I knew I was not going to do ‘Yahoo’.
“I can’t be in a Police station or be in a cell. A lot of people at that time were going into that. Sometimes, guys will tell you, won’t you carry a laptop?
This one you are going to movie sets. Even Dakore used to tell me at the time that there is no money in Nollywood. What will you be doing?”
That’s why from the beginning it might seem like it was strategic, but it was more of a divine direction that I got from God to make sure that I am building a brand as well that people want to see.
What these other guys don’t understand is that you can’t only be a good actor, you have to be a marketable brand”.
