One of Nollywood's finest actors dating back to more than two decades has decided to leave acting.
Ramsey Nouah said he thinks he has had his fair share of the career and wants to opt out.
Many will remember the light-skinned actor in movies that marked him one of the most talented in the Nigerian movie industry. Some of such movies are; Silent Night, Dangerous twins; and of course The Figurine which won him the award of Best actor in a leading role in 2010 edition of AMAA awards.
This is what the actor had to say; "To my fans and loved ones, I know they'll always want to see me on screen, but as they say, it's best to leave when the ovation is loudest. I want to leave a very strong legacy.
"I believe I have left a very strong imprint in that line. There's no possible way you can mention 'Nollywood' without mentioning Ramsey Nouah.
"I only want to be associated with the kind of movies that are poised to take the industry to another level, which is where we are headed now. Plus, I want to focus on working behind the scenes.
"I started a project at one point in time, but due to circumstances I wasn't able to see it through, so it didn't see the light of day, but I'm working on that now and getting the resources together.
He may be quitting but the actor is confident he is not deserting the movie industry completely.
So we will just hope that he will keep at it. Nollywood is not done with him yet.
