Our entertainers are really not joking about politics. Veteran Nollywood actor, Kenneth Okonkwo is the latest in a long list of entertainers vying for elective positions in Nigeria come 2015.
The actor who came to limelight in 1991 when he starred in Nigeria’s first ever home video, Living in Bondage will be running for a seat in the National Assembly to represent Nsukka/Igboeze South Federal Constituency where he hails from. He will be running under the platform of the People’s Democratic Party.
The actor who often wears a broad smile is a graduate of Business Administration from the University of Nigeria, Nsukka. He also has a masters degree in International Law and Diplomacy from the University of Lagos, Akoka and has also studied Theology in the past.
We wish him luck!
