The internet has been blown away by a captivating video that stars veteran actor Kanayo O. Kanayo and well-known Nigerian artist Davido Adeleke. In the viral video, Davido is seen greeting the renowned actor Kanayo O. Kanayo and immediately giving a bow to him out of respect.
This video has gained a lot of attention on social media, with many users complimenting Davido for his outward display of admiration for the renowned actor.
Kanayo O. Kanayo initially portrayed a ritualist 31 years ago, and he hasn’t been able to shake the reputation since. No one is more affected by Nollywood’s typecasting issue than Kanayo O. Kanayo, an actor who made his name by portraying iconic ritualist characters in a number of well-known occult movies beginning in the 1990s.
The actor was prolific in his ritualist parts and rapidly rose to prominence as the leading man of Nollywood’s influential ritual cinema era, but he wasn’t the only one. But none of Kanayo O. Kanayo’s contemporaries have managed to hold onto their brilliance as well as he has decades later; as a result, he has become the ritualist’s icon in Nigerian popular culture.
The actor frequently appears in discussions about real-life and fictitious ritual murder, and, much like recently, he even dominates current trends, but only for comic relief.
