Why I don’t consider an actor who joins politics as an actor – Funsho Adeolu

Renowned Nollywood actor, Funsho Adeolu has declared that any Nigerian actor who is now a politician or into politics should not be regarded as an actor.

During an interview, the actor explained why his colleagues should not be into politics. He asserted that the ideal of an actor is to be a good person, but that changes the moment they join politics.
