Emmanuel Ikubuese became popular when he won the Mr. Nigeria contest few years ago. But now, his popularity somewhat went a notch higher with his ‘sex’ role in Fifty, a Mo Abudu movie.
According to the model cum actor, he sees his role in the movie as an art and a way to prove himself.
In a recent interview, he defended his role saying it was an art, though Nigerians seems to think otherwise.
“I see acting as an art and you need to prove yourself. The film does not have anything to do with our cultural values. Fifty has a vision and the vision is not only to sell in Nigeria but an international vision to show the world. I believe the movie is about bringing life to art.” He said.
The actor also revealed, he was paid a lot of money for the role he played and still anticipates lots more if the movie becomes successful.
