Filmmaker Ernest Obi recalls going nude for a movie role
Prolific Nollywood filmmaker and director, Ernest Obi has shared a throw back of when he went nude for a movie role.
He shared a flashback to the 90s with a photo of his feature film ‘Till Death’.
The psychological thriller written and directed by Obi, saw him play the role of a psychotic young man. ‘Till Death’ also starred Pete Edochie, Ejike Asiegbu, Charles Okafor and Joan Stephens.
Recalling the audacious role, Obi wrote on Instagram: “TILL DEATH…Wrote. Produced And Directed This In D Early/mid 90’s. I Remember running stark naked on D Streets Of Festac for This Movie. The poster itself…hmmmm. Way Ahead Of D Period.#mindsetiseverything.”
Lately, the veteran actor has been more behind the scenes and is agreeably one of the biggest directors in the home video industry. Obi’s films are notable for the portrayal of supernatural forces fused with Igbo traditional religion.
A few years ago, the actor addressed critics on claims that his horror films contained excessive dark magic. Some of his popular films include ‘Idemili’ starring Destiny Etiko, ‘Poka Messiah’ starring Jide Kene Achufusi and ‘The Harvest’ available on Amazon Prime video.
