I'm Tired Of Playing Herbalist Role In Films, Ojopagogo Cries Out

Yoruba actor, director and movie producer, Ojopagogo has lamented about over-playing the same roles in the film industry.

Veteran actor, Rasaq Olayiwola, popularly known as Ojopagogo, has been gracing our television screen for over three decades.
 
The actor, who often features as an old man or an herbalist in movies, spoke to Saturday Beats about being stereotyped in the movie industry.
 
He stated that he was fed up with producers always casting him as an herbalist in movies, stating that as an actor, he is meant to explore all characters available to him.
 
“When I started acting, I did not start with the role of an herbalist. Alade Aromire was the first person that cast me as an herbalist in a movie and since then, people have started using me for the role of an herbalist. I have complained about it; in fact, last year, I had to hold a meeting with some stakeholders in our industry to let them know that they should use me for other movie roles instead of only using me for the role of an herbalist.

“They told me that it is due to the demand of the public but I would prefer to play other roles. Nowadays, if you insist that I should act the role of an herbalist in your movie, I do it but not with the same zeal I would use to portray other characters,” he said.
 
When asked what his dream role would be, the thespian stated that he would love to play the role of someone who terrorises people in movies.
 
“One of my dream roles is to play the role of someone who terrorises others in a crime movie. I want to be featured in a crime movie and I want people to know that I am a versatile actor.

“Even if people would not want to cast me for that role, I can write a script that would depict my desire and I would shoot the movie. The journey into my acting career has been challenging; I have still not achieved what I want. I want to leave my footprints on the sands of time after I am dead and gone; money is not everything,” he said.
