Just a few millions in naira and you already look big”- Gideon Okeke mocks his colleagues for gaining weight
Nigerian actor Gideon Okeke has humorously called out his colleagues for their weight gain, attributing it to their newfound financial success. In a video shared on his Instagram profile, Okeke playfully mocked fellow actors, suggesting that the moment they start earning some money and gaining popularity, it reflects in their physical appearance.
Okeke emphasized that his own weight gain had cost him potential job opportunities, as casting directors preferred actors who maintained their original physique. He drew a comparison with wealthy individuals like Aliko Dangote and Femi Otedola, pointing out that despite their substantial wealth, they did not appear overweight.
In his candid commentary, Okeke questioned whether an actor’s body remained their most valuable asset for their profession and shared anecdotes from casting rooms where the physical transformation of some colleagues resulted in missed opportunities.
The actor highlighted the urgency in the entertainment industry, where quick decisions are often needed, and the transformation of some actors due to weight gain may lead to them losing out on roles. In his witty conclusion, Okeke humorously remarked that just a few million in Naira seemed to be enough to make his colleagues “look big.”
