Nollywood actress Adunni Ade has disclosed how Ramsey Nouah was a deciding factor in her decision to relocate back to Nigeria.
According to the thespian, she met her colleague in 2011 and he offered her some advice which she took to heart.
The light-skinned actress noted that Ramsey advised her to move back to Nigeria if she truly wants to succeed and maintain a presence in the Nollywood industry.
Sharing more details on their conversation, the Nollywood star said that he told her that there were two ways for her to make it to the top—the fast route and the slow route, and she chose the latter.
Speaking via her Instagram, Adunni stated that Ramsey has always been her mentor and she felt if he could make it in the industry so could she.
She wrote: “I have told this story a few times but in 2011, I met bro @ramseynouah in Owings Mills, Maryland. I later requested to have a talk with him which we did at a mall close to DC.
“He gave me some pointers I still hold.on strongly to 12years later. He said, if you really want to pursue Acting in Nollywood, you’d have to move out to Nigeria and be in the faces of the Nigerian audience.
“He added, there are 2 ways to make it to the top. The fast route or what seems to be the slow route. You look like the one who would take the slow route (not sure if he really saw that in me or speaking unspoken words). It might seem like it’s taking for ever, bunch of no’s, rejection left and right. But keep pushing until you get to the top and best believe you will remain at the top for a very long time.
“Growing up, he was someone I constantly made reference to, that if someone who looked like me could make it in a country I thought did me wrong, I could to.
“Everytime I see him, I make it a conscious decision to always thank him. I’m sure he’s always wondering but why? Bro Ramsey! You have an amazing spirit! You are far too kind! You didn’t have to help direct me in a path I had already chosen but you did! It has always been my dream to work with you and 12 years later. The magic happened.
“Getting a call from @chrisodeh to work with y’all on set of TOKUNBO was mind blowing!
“To you and your team! Thank you for making me enjoy the set! As cr@zy as it was, it’s one of my favorite production have been part of. Ramsey is a well detailed individual. An auteur! Barbara, Susan, Efe, Rex, Teju pretty much everyone on set! Y’all are extremely professional! Y’all keep it that way”.
