No pressure acting romantic roles — Chimezie Imo

Actor, Chimezie Imo, is undoubtedly one of the actors rising in Nollywood at the moment. It is also not in doubt that he constantly acts as a lover boy in movies, but in an interview with Sunday Scoop, he stated that it does not come with any pressure.

Imo, who was nominated in the Best Actor in a Drama category of the Africa Magic Viewer’s Choice Awards 2023, said, “I honestly don’t feel pressure. My job as an actor is to give myself to whatever character I choose to portray to the best of my ability. Any pressure or responsibility I feel when portraying a romantic relationship on screen will be in respect to my craft, not due to cultural and societal expectations.”

Reacting to his AMVCA nomination, the actor said, “Being recognised for my work is always an honour and privilege I never take for granted. But frankly, to be nominated for an AMVCA for my role in the movie, Choke, feels surreal because the film was a labour of love for everyone involved. When I heard about the nomination, my reaction was that of sheer surprise, followed by absolute joy and immeasurable gratitude.”
