An American psychologist Dr. Umar Johnson expresses his interest in starring in a Nollywood movie.

Umar Johnson urged Nollywood movie producers to getting in touch with him about appearing in their productions.


But he pointed out that the movie he would star in needs to be one that has to do with being conscious.

He said:

“Nigeria, I’m waiting for an invitation. I’m trying to get into Nollywood. I want to star in some of the Nigerian movies. Somebody put me in touch with Black Nollywood in Nigeria.

“I want to be in a Nollywood movie. Anybody making a movie out there has got to be conscious though. I’m not doing any blaxploitation. My role has to be egocentric. My role has to be who I am. I can have a different name and personality but it must be progressive and pan-Africanist.

“I will not play a con on television. I’m not playing no pimp, no drug dealer, no criminal. It must be consistent. egocentricity is a necessity.”
