Nollywood actor, Femi Jacobs, has revealed that he didn’t start acting until he was almost 30.
In an interview with Pulse.ng the Taxi Driver actor stated that cherish the privilege of being able to stand in front of a camera to interpret a role.
“A lot of people know me as an actor, but I was almost 30 before I ever stood in front of a camera for the first time. So, describing me as an actor is missing the whole point.
“I cherish that privilege, I love the fact that I am able to do that, I like the fact that a lot of people connect to me at that level, I like the fact that I am able to win awards doing that, I really really cherish that.
“But that’s just the doing person. That’s just one of the things I did. I went to flying school, I started businesses, I was a musician from the time I was 14 years old, so all of those things are just the doing,” he said.
Femi came into prominence for playing Makinde Esho in the film The Meeting which also stars Rita Dominic and Jide Kosoko.
For his role in The Meeting, he received a nomination for Best Actor in a Leading Role at the 9th Africa Movie Academy Awards. He also won the award for Best Actor in a Comedy at the 2015 Africa Magic Viewers Choice Awards (AMVCA)
