‘Why I Was Slapped For The Roles I Play In Movies’- Kelvin Ikeduba
The bulky and tough-looking actor said he has been slapped and insulted before owing to the way he interprets his villain roles. In his view, fans find it difficult to blur the lines between his impersonation on the screens and his real life, forgetting movies are just fictitious meant to mirror what happens in society.
The Delta State-born actor sadly recounted his experience by saying: “I have had different experiences. I have been slapped, called names because of my roles in movies. But I believe it’s all about mistaken identity.’
Though I play the bad boy role, naturally, I am not a bad person. You know, Nigerians could be fanatical if they want to be. Some people would ask me why did you do that in the film and so on. I don’t see it from the negative side. Rather, I see it from the positive side that I played the character well and that’s why I am getting all these reactions. So, most times when those negative remarks come my way, I don’t feel bad about them. Rather, I just tell myself for people to react this way, Kelvin you are very good at what you are doing.”
