In a chat with Ladun Liadi, veteran Nollywood actor, Saint Obi talked about what he’s been up to outside stardom.
Here is part of what he had to say;
“I am not a perfect being, but I am very distant from those things written or adduced to my person. An example, I never bought any G-Wagon valued at 48 million Naira [I craze?]
The real me is a very selfless person who will share my last 100 Naira with the needy; who is constantly thinking of ways to impact positively on other people and society, at large. I don’t like talking much; rather I let my works do my talking. I believe that charity, just like being a fine person must start from inward; hence if you visit my village, Umuezealaeze Alaenyi, Ogwa in Mbaitoli LGA of Imo State, I have done my little bit to help my people but more importantly inspire a new vision.
Through the Grace of God Almighty, I was able to destroy 2 big shrines in my village, sunk boreholes, did road repairs, empower the young and old, etc.
My actions are not limited to my village; in the cities, I am also constantly preaching against the Osu syndrome, crime, poor morals, religious and ethnic bigotry, the need to for education, amongst others… its possible to change the world and Nigeria if we only try.”
Go on with the good work Saint Obi.
