Nollywood actor Femi Ogedengbe, has for the first time, spoken about his relocation to the U.S, which he said was necessitated by poverty.

However, in a chat with Kemifilami, he revealed that he now works as a security guard in the U.S, and not a gardener, as being reported in some section of the media.

According to him: "I have relocated to the U.S. I got there in January, 2016, and my family joined me in July, 2017. I relocated because I just couldn’t cope with the way my life was going for me in terms of poverty.

I saw myself as one of the very great actors in Nollywood. In 2005, I discovered that the Nollywood industry, where I belong, was becoming more and more a tribalistic industry because a few financiers who were throwing in money for productions dictated who appear in the movies.

So, more and more, we discovered that those of us, talking about Emeka and others, we were not getting the jobs we should get based on merit, I had to move over to the Yoruba genre and even at that, I discovered that the Yoruba genre was more like a help- me-I-help you outfit that couldn’t pay my bills, I just couldn’t cope.

I bless God for a good wife, everything got messed up, I was practically begging to feed. I looked into it, I have been travelling out of the country since 2007, I told my wife that we have to make a sacrifice.

I need to move out of the country and seek a greener pasture and as God would have it, the plans worked out. To the glory of God today, we are in the US together. I am a Security Guard, a job that takes care of me, my family and my people back home, while I upgrade my film-making skill.

I work as a security personnel, I trained to be a Security Guard and I obtained a guard card, which is the criterium to work as a guard, and maybe I might own my security company soon too."

  1. Industry with no infrastructures, this is the outcome. But he should have doubled his efforts to write and try to produce his own script by looking for an investor. Doing a menial job in US is just a temporary antidote. These types of job has a way of keeping you down there for a long time because u never make enough money to survive, talk of having time to resurrect ur career. Wish him the best o.
