Nigerian veteran Rapper, Reminisce has received lots of accolades for his professional performance for his role in the movie “King of Boys”.
However, the singer narrated his experience of acting for the first time during an interview with the Hip TV crew.
Reminisce who played the character Makanaki in the Nigerian blockbuster, said it took them about 8 months to convince him before he finally gave in into being part of the movie.
“I wasn’t so sure I could do it because I had so much going on at that time but Kemi Adetiba was able to convince me and this took about eight months. Though there were a lot of other names flying around but she said no, that she wanted Reminisce to do this”, he said.
Also, the multi-award winning singer explained how he was intimidated by the acting prowess of Sola Sobowale and thought of abandoning his role in the movie during his first day on set.
“So, yeah, I took up the challenge and my first day on set, I saw aunty Sola Sobowale in her full element. It was my birthday and Olamide was waiting for me at a night club but I had to shoot some scenes.
“So, I saw her in her full element and I told Kemi I can’t do this. She asked why I said look at this woman na, I can’t do this. This woman is in another world, I don’t want to mess up, I can’t do this. But Kemi convinced me and said she believed I can do it and I went back home and returned to give my best like you all saw in the movie”.
