Empire‘s Taraji P Henson and Terrence Howard were in South Africa recently to connect with their fans. In an exclusive interview with BellaNaija‘s Jadesola Odujole, they spoke about their experience in South Africa, visiting Nigeria, their favourite Nigerian actors among other things.
When they were asked about their favourite Nigerian Hollywood actors, Taraji and Terence had the same answers: “David Oyelowo, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Sophie Okonedo and so many more! We watch a lot of Nigerian’s work as much as you watch ours because that’s how we grow as actors.”
Terrence also mentioned that plans to come to Nigeria are in the works saying, “A large percentage of our fan base is Nigerian so we’ll definitely be coming there at some point. One of the places we were trying to get to is Nigeria, but we’ll save that for another trip. Taraji just traced some of her heritage to Cameroon and I just found out that I’m 9% Nigerian and 21% Malian, so we’ll definitely try to get to as much places as possible.”
