Anayo Modestus Onyekwere, the actor popularly known as Kanayo O. Kanayo, has said he would never practice money rituals, despite being famous for his ritual roles in Nollywood.
The legendary actor stated this during a recent interview with Afia TV as he stressed that the the occultic act is not ‘good’.
Kanayo felt the need to make clarification on that name ‘Nnanyi Sacrifice’ that people call him, saying it was first mentioned by someone at Obi Cubana’s mom’s burial in Oba two years ago.
The thespian said although he made sure to reject it on the spot, the name had stuck since then, but he doesn’t care so long as people are paying his cheque.
Kanayo said; “Money ritual is not good and will never be good. I will never be part of it and have never been part of it. When you hear somebody call me ‘Nnanyi Sacrifice,’ it was just the name somebody called me during Obi Cubana’s mother’s burial.
“One thing about names is that immediately you start rejecting it, it sticks. Call me any name you like, but pay me my cheque. If we listen to the message, we will change the society more. I am just a vessel.”
