“The first time I had the encounter was from someone I used to respect a lot. He told me that they would pay me very well and that I should become of one of them. I asked him how he wanted to insert his thing. We know so well that the industry has been penetrated. It is not only the movie industry, that dreaded disease called homosexual has escalated and penetrated all the corners of our society. “Unfortunately, it is not in our culture. God is angry. God showed us an example with the flood. Next time it might be fire.
“A lot of things are happening. This is the end time. if God does not treat this matter of homosexuality in our country and other places, then God has an apology for Sodom and Gomorrah , even though God cannot make mistakes. There is no different between what is happening now and what happened then”, he said in Lagos.

‘It was with disbelief I received the sad news of the death of Uncle Pete Eneh. Honestly, I am still finding it extremely difficult to come to terms with his death. Well, we are mere mortals. When fate summons, we mere mortals must obey. I believe Uncle Pete Eneh has achieved his aspiration on earth. Also, I believe he is happy where he is now. A good man he was; amiable, loving, kind, humble, and caring. God bless his soul. I shall continue to champion the cause of actors. We are in bondage here; no good welfare package for the actor, no quality insurance/pension scheme, no health plan, nothing!
