Ace Nollywood actor, Ernest Asuzu, has again said the Nigerian movie industry is evil. Asuzu insisted that most Nollywood practitioners depend heavily on charms for solution to their challenges. Ernest Asuzu says practitioners depend on charms.
Recall that the actor suffered a stroke some years back and news had made the rounds he was battling mental illness. Although the Delta State-born actor later came out to say he was feeling better and denied having any mental illness, he was also rumoured to have been reduced to a beggar in Surulere, Lagos state after spending over 3 months on sick bed.

In his claim, the ‘Last Wedding’ actor said he intends to become a Pastor and preach the gospel to his colleagues in order to ensure Nollywood as an industry gets closer to God.
He said, “I am not a pastor but I intend to be a pastor, to preach the gospel; I know it is not easy to be a pastor but I tell you if God calls me, I will answer.
“I will either be a pastor or prophet. But I am begging them (Nollywood actors and actress) to leave evil alone. Evil does not pay anybody. They inflicted me with stroke but I did not feel I had stroke for one day. So, if God chooses me as his vessel, I will say ‘Here am I, send me’. I want Nollywood to get closer to God because the time we are now is evil.
“I’m not angry but I don’t like the way they treat human beings. What I don’t like about the practitioners is their heavy dependence and trust in charms.
“They should leave charms alone and turn to God, the ultimate for solution to all their challenges,” the actor told the Sun in a recent chat.
Meanwhile, in 2016, the actor also lamented the height of evil in the movie industry, revealing he has been attacked several times and has now resolved to watch his back.
