Nollywood actor, Rasaq Olayiwola popularly known as Ojopagogo has expressed how tired he is of being stereotyped in movies. Speaking with Saturday Beats, Ojopagogo who has been acting for about three decades now, said he’s tired of always being offered to play the role of an old man or a herbalist.
“They told me that it is due to the demand of the public but I would prefer to play other roles. Nowadays, if you insist that I should act the role of an herbalist in your movie, I do it but not with the same zeal I would use to portray other characters, ” he said.
When asked what his dream role would be, the thespian stated that he would love to play the role of someone who terrorises people in movies.“One of my dream roles is to play the role of someone who terrorises others in a crime movie. I want to be featured in a crime movie and I want people to know that I am a versatile actor.
“Even if people would not want to cast me for that role, I can write a script that would depict my desire and I would shoot the movie. The journey into my acting career has been challenging; I have still not achieved what I want. I want to leave my footprints on the sands of time after I am dead and gone; money is not everything, ” he said.
