He said;Â “I created a character called ”˜Mazi Kalu.` He is Igbo, old man, has problems but at the same time, sometimes tries to solve problems.
“And if you know Ruggedman, I have always been in acting. I did my first waka pass , I think even before I became Ruggedman. I play extra in like two movies, Francis Agu`s movies back in the days. Of Course, you can find me in Toyin Abraham`s ”˜The Ghost and the Tout`, you can find me in Jim Iyke`s ”˜Bad Comments.` So, I`ve done a lot of acting. I`m gonna start promoting that part of me really soon.
“And ofcourse, I have been doing some skits here and there. But now, I have decided to get serious with the ”˜Mazi Kalu` character. So, it`s a character that is gonna be out there. There will be funny ones but of course, it`s still gonna teach you things.”
