Veteran Nollywood actor, Nkem Owoh also known as Osuofia, has broken his silence on viral claim that he rejected N10 million to support the presidential flagbearer of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Ahmed Tinubu, in the 2023 general elections.
News spread like wild fire over the weekend that the thespian allegedly rejected the offer and said N10 million cannot buy his endorsement because 2023 is very critical for the collective good of all Nigerians.
It was alleged that Osuofia was initially offered the “usual N5 million” to endorse the presidential aspirant but he turned it down. They then doubled the offer but he still rejected it.
Shortly after the alleged report surfaced online, several Nollywood stars including Zack Orji, Benedict Johnson and others came out to endorse Tinubu as their choice candidate.
However, Sahara Reporters reached out to Nkem Owoh to confirm or deny the claims he rejected N10 million but the actor refused to comment on the issue.
“I don’t want to confirm it, I am not interested in politics,” he told the news outfit on Tuesday afternoon.
Meanwhile, days after veteran Nollywood actor, Zack Orji, declared support for the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Ahmed Tinubu, netizens have dug out an old video of him asking that the 2023 presidency be zoned out to South-East.
