Nigerian actor Soji Taiwo, renowned as Omo Banke, has revealed the motives underlying his unforeseen repatriation to Nigeria after an extended sojourn in the United States of America.
His relocation to the US some years ago had sparked considerable attention, yet he managed to astound many with his captivating reentry into his homeland.
Omo Banke elucidated that his decision to return was motivated by his eagerness to participate in the vibrant new phase of Nollywood. In this rejuvenated era, he aspires to be part of blockbuster productions like “King of Thieves” and “Jagun Jagun.”
Having openly talked about the transformation in his career following his return, the actor enthusiastically conveyed his joy over the rise of well-funded Yoruba films within the entertainment sector.
Soji said; “This is the best thing that could happen to Nollywood at the moment. I give kudos to the actors and filmmakers who are working hard to change the narrative in the industry. I also cannot wait to shoot movies such as ‘Jagun Jagun’ (The Warrior), and ‘Ageshinkole’ (King of Thieves).
“That is what I want, and I know my fans want me to do something like that as well. That was why I returned from the United States of America. I am back for good, and for more progress and success.
“I would like to see more high-budget Yoruba films such as ‘Jagun Jagun’. And, that is already happening. I am so happy about that.”
The actor also mentioned that he wasn’t perturbed by the rumors circulating regarding the type of work he was engaged in during his time in the United States.
