‘Acting isn’t about quoting proverbs’, writer Sugabelly says Pete Edochie is bad actor

By Aishat Salihu

A writer identified as Sugabelly has described veteran Nollywood actor, Pete Edochie, as a “really bad actor”.

Sugabelly took to Twitter on Wednesday to criticise Edochie saying that the actor has been playing the role of an elder all his life adding that Nigerians attach so much importance to old age.

“Pete Edochie is a really bad actor. He’s been playing the same role his entire life.

“Acting isn’t quoting proverbs. But Nigerians live and die by seniority so the older he gets, the less anybody is able to point this glaring elephant in the room out,” she wrote.

She further criticized another veteran actor, Joke Silva.

According to Sugabelly, Silva ‘overacts’ while referring to her as non-versatile.

“Joke Silva is a pretty good actress but she overacts a lot. Not through her movements but through her voice. She always sounds as if she’s reciting Shakespeare when she’s meant to be chatting with her adult child at breakfast. Also, she doesn’t have much variation in roles,” the writer wrote.

Meanwhile, in reaction to the disqualification of Genevieve Nnaji’s Lionheart from Oscars 2020, Sugabelly added that Nigeria should have submitted the movie ‘Nneka the Pretty Serpent’ for Oscars consideration when the country had the chance.
