‘I can’t give up one talent for the other’ – Ikechukwu says he’s not ready to quit music for acting

Nigerian rapper cum actor, Ikechukwu, is saying he’s not ready to quit music for anything, not even acting which has been his focus recently.

The ‘Critical’ hit maker, who starred in The Wedding Party, told Punch he’s only expanding his horizon and not quitting music.

‘I don’t see why I should quit music for acting. I don’t even see why it should be considered. I see it as an expansion so I do not have to give one talent up for the other,’ he said.

He also added, ‘They are both expressions of the talent God gave me so I cannot even choose which I love the most between acting and music.

‘But one thing is for sure; I am not quitting either of the two great talents that I have.’

He went on to mention his works in Nollywood, and how he got his role as Banky W‘s best man in The Wedding Party.

‘‘The Wedding Party’ was not my first stint with acting. I was actually in the award winning short film titled, ‘The Wages.

‘I told Mo Abudu that I would love to work with her and when they were auditioning for ‘The Wedding Party,’ I was called. I auditioned twice and they invited me to be a part of the cast for the movie,’  he said.
