American psychologist, Dr. Umar Johnson, has conveyed his interest in appearing in a Nigerian movie.

He called on Nollywood filmmakers to reach out to him to feature in their movies.

He, however, noted that it has to be a conscious film.

Speaking in a now-viral video, Dr. Johnson said: “Nigeria, I’m waiting for an invitation. I’m trying to get into Nollywood. I want to star in some of the Nigerian movies. Somebody put me in touch with Black Nollywood in Nigeria.

“I want to be in a Nollywood movie. Anybody making a movie out there, hasgot to be conscious though. I’m not doing any blaxploitation. My role has to be egocentric. My role has to be who I am. I can have a different name and personality but it must be progressive and pan-Africanist.

“I will not play a con on television. I’m not playing no pimp, no drug dealer, no criminal. It must be consistent. egocentricity is a necessity.”
