He said, “I created a character called Mazi Kalu. He is Igbo, old man who has problems but, at the same time, sometimes tries to solve problems.

“And if you know Ruggedman, I have always been in acting. I did my first waka pass (minor role), I think even before I became Ruggedman. I play extra in two movies, Francis Agu’s movies back in the day.

“Of course, you can find me in Toyin Abraham’s The Ghost and the Tout. You can find me in Jim Iyke’s Bad Comments. So, I’ve done a lot of acting. I’m gonna start promoting that part of me really soon.

“And of course, I have been doing some skits here and there. But now, I have decided to get serious with the Mazi Kalu character. So, it’s a character that is gonna be out there. There will be funny ones but of course, it’s still gonna teach you things.”
