Actor, Wale Adebayo - I Relocated To US Because Acting Didn’t WorkFor Me

Nollywood Actor, Wale Adebayo, popularly known as Sango, has opened up on the reason why he left Nigeriafor the United States of America and it was simply because he wasn’t getting enough out of acting.In a chat with Sunday Scoop, the actor stated that he didn’t wish to relocate to the United States of Americaat the time he did, but his living condition and that of his family was already deteriorating and so he didn’t have any option but to seek greener pasture.

He said:“For me, relocating to America wasn’t by choice; thesituation of Nigeria played a huge factor in it. At somepoint, I told myself that I had a family to feed and theindustry wasn’t as favorable as it should be. I stoppedthinking about myself alone and the need to save my acting career. I wanted to do something for my kids.”Adebayo added that after relocating to America, he ventured into something new. He stated,“It wasn’t easy for me to leave what I enjoyed doing for another life in America. But the most important thing is that I am not where I was four or seven years ago. I am in a better place now and my family is more comfortable.”The Yoruba actor also lamented that it was quite disheartening that despite the effort he put into his acting career, he didn’t get the best from it.

He said:“I did everything to make a living out of acting but itjust didn’t work for me. That is why I respect the likes of Richard Mofe Damijo, Ramsey Nouah, Kate Henshaw and Sola Sobowale. Even when they disappearedfrom the scene for some years, it seemed they never left once they returned. I call it grace. I have also learned that an actor should never relax even though he has made a huge impact.”
