Am Happy To Sell Okrika- Nollywood Actor, Sylvester Madu


Actor Sylvester Madu responds to critics saying, "I'm not ashamed of selling Okrika."

Sylvester Madu has confronted movie buffs who are perplexed by the fact that he trades in second-hand items, or "okrika."

On Friday, a video showing the movie star hawking the reasonably-used goods in an Enugu market appeared on social media.

In the now-viral video, Madu, dressed in a brown jacket, was seen talking to some clients while holding a bag of items.

Nigerians were shocked by the video, and several of them voiced concern for the actor.

In response to the popular video, Madu expressed his pride in "my business empire," which consisted of numerous people selling various types of gently used goods.

He also addressed the young people without jobs who are shocked by " legit business," advising them to find employment and quit pleading for money on social media.  

Do your business honestly; don't send anyone. This is incredibly encouraging, someone says. Why would he be sitting at home doing nothing if someone like me can handle my business? He said in pidgin English, "Because there are a lot of Nigerian youths at home just sitting around doing nothing.

Some of them will only appear on social media as "I urgently need 2K, boys". Working outside is fine. If you can't find job, I'll hire you. Boys who work for me sell at various locations.

People often make claims that legitimate business is dishonorable. Why should somebody buy from me instead of the market vendor? because I'm well-known? because I'm a famous person or an actor? So? I don't run a business. Do you have any idea how much has been sent to me and how much more is on the way? expressing support for your business. No, but I'm starving.

Madu said he once took out a loan to buy a Blackberry phone only to impress people as he reflected on people's fascination with material possessions in 2021.

The actor, who was born in Anambra, is well known for playing villains in movies.

In 1998, he made his film debut, and since then, he has established himself as a household name. He has acted in countless films.
