“Hope shey una go shut up now?” — Actor Timini Egbuson knocks his critics after playing lead role in the highest grossing Nollywood movie

Popular Nollywood actor Timini Egbuson has taken a stand against critics questioning his versatility in acting, particularly those alleging he’s confined to portraying lover boy roles in movies.

This bold response comes on the heels of his recent starring role in ‘A Tribe Called Judah,’ which has surged as the highest-grossing Nollywood movie, already accumulating a staggering billion naira and counting at the box office.

Egbuson, known for his charismatic performances, has hit back at naysayers who limit his acting range. His portrayal in ‘A Tribe Called Judah’ showcases his depth and ability to command diverse roles beyond the romantic lead archetype.

The resounding success of this film serves as a testament to Egbuson’s talent and his capability to captivate audiences in multifaceted characters, silencing doubts about his acting versatility.

Not only did the movie break the record for the highest-grossing film, but it also achieved milestones as the quickest film to reach N1 billion at the box office and the most successful director in Nollywood in terms of earnings.

On Twitter, the 36-year-old movie star enthusiastically shared the movie’s remarkable success in cinemas while cheekily addressing critics who pigeonhole him into lover boy or spoiled kid roles.He expressed hope that this accomplishment would dispel that narrative, highlighting that his character in the movie significantly differs from his usual roles in films.
