“Fame Not My Reason For Playing Ade Tiger”, Says Actor Titi Kuti

Published

on

Rising actor, Titi Kuti a.k.a Ade Tiger has revealed that fame wasn’t his reason for playing Ade Tiger in the series, ‘King of Boys.

The actor was speaking in an interview with Nancy Isime, TV host, about his role as Ade Tiger in ‘King of Boys’.

In his words:’’I didn’t take up ‘King of Boys’ as a project from an individual perspective.It was never about the reception that I would get. I have always seen it from a deeper perspective. Nollywood was due for game changer like this. Irrespective of Ade Tiger becoming prominent or not, I would still have been satisfied about the outcome of the film. I am not one of those actors that was looking for ‘blow’ opportunity. For me, it’s the love of the craft.I read the script, I saw what Kemi was trying to do. She was bold and daring about telling a story that so many have told in some certain way”.

Sharing his thoughts on typecasting in Nollywood, he said: ““When you act scenes that resonate with who you are, you will connect more to those scenes and it will reflect in your delivery. I’m sure there are places that Ade Tiger meets Titi Kuti as far as personality is concerned,” he said.

“It’s easier to plug into something that is in you than to build a character and then plug in. You cannot eliminate the possibility of typecasting. For the longest of time, Arnold Schwarzenegger was known as Commando.

“Same for Rambo, that’s Sylvester Stallone. But they knew when to transit. The next channel is to take on roles that allow you to exercise and develop muscles in areas that you’re yet to [explore].

“The closest I’ve seen to that is a film called ‘Mexico’, that is to be shot in Mexico, about a Mexican drug cartel. Although, I’m not in the cartel, just an unfortunate tourist. I also have a short film that I’ve just finished writing.

“It’s about ethnocentrism, cultural inclusion, and building a collaborative society as long as the west is concerned. I don’t want to say racism still exists but it’s a thing of the mind. We do what we do to keep the message going.”
