Gideon Okeke mocks his colleagues for gaining weight

Gideon Okeke Biography

Nigerian film actor, Gideon Okeke has mocked some of his colleagues who have gained weight after featuring in a couple of movies and coming into money.

Gideon Okeke took to his Instagram page to drop a video, saying their weight gain has made them lose job opportunities because they don’t look their usual best just because they scored some money.

To buttress his point, the former Big Brother Naija 2006 housemate said some of the richest men in Africa, Aliko Dangote, Femi Otedola, and more do not look bloated, but smart without extra flesh.

“Dear actor, is your body still the best tool that you got? Is your body still the best tool that you possess for your job?

I’ve observed that soon as actors get on the up and up, and by the up and up I mean start becoming a household name, start booking some more, start coming into some money, start holding some money, the operative word there is ‘some’.

Soon as actors start touching some money, that money begins to show up on their faces, on their neck lines, on their waist line, on their belly, but all you came into was just a couple millions in naira. That’s all you got.

Just a couple millions in naira but it’s already showing up on your face and all over your body.

Here is another observation: the people who have real money, who have always been in real money really don’t look like that. Alhaji Aliko Dangote is the richest African on the continent but doesn’t look like the weight of the money he got. Mr Chief Otedola is also one of the richest men around but he don’t look like the weight of the money he got.

But talking to the actors, you just made a few million in naira but those millions are already showing up on your face. My brother, my sister, that’s why I asked the question “is the body still the best tool you got?” Here’s where my question is coming from. I had the opportunity to sit in several casting rooms where pictures of my mates where put on the wall and we were all being analytical of who gets which character.

As much as I recommend my brothers and say put this guy on, guess what producers and casting directors say? They don’t even look the part no more. They look all bloated now. We don’t have two months to wait for this guy to get down from where he is, we need plug and play, we need to go now, and that’s how some of my friends missed out on some couple roles that had their names on it. Because they didn’t look the part no more.

Just a few millions in naira and you already look [big].”
