In an interview with PUNCH, Uti speaks on acting and marriage
Revealing he hasn’t been in the country, Uti says he is back after taking a break from acting because saying it doesn’t pay much and he isn’t ready am not ready for that kind of life.
I don’t want to pretend about it, so, I am only focusing on what brings greater pay, which is tv presenting and events hosting.
Acting would just be a hobby bcos to me producers can’t afford to pay what I want to earn in acting. But I will not stay away from movies completely, I will only pick exceptional movies instead of featuring in all the ones I am invited to feature in. I don’t have so much time for small pay, I am in the industry to make money to play.
I will certainly marry at the right time and marriage is not a competition. Once I find the right partner for me, nothing will stop me from getting marrying that one. I am an adult and my parents are well educated, so I don’t expect them to force me to get married.
