Music maestro, Mr. Wilson Ehigiator also known as Akobeghian has said that he may quit acting by next year.
Wilson who is to mark his 30 years on stage as an actor, has been able to combine acting with his musical career quoting lack of encouragement from the government and the citizens of the state as the reasons for bowing out.
According to the multi talented Benin film actor “Next year, 2022, I will be 30 years in the film industry. I started 1992. The first time I saw a camera and I heard the word from the director saying action was in January 1992. By next year, I will be 30 years. Celebrating that day, I might resign from the industry. I might announce my resignation maybe I might still stay but 80 percent retired.
“Because I am getting tired because you just asked a question just now, we the film actors in Benin, we do it by ourselves especially we that speak Bini, we promote the culture and no assistant, we pay for the houses we record our films, pay for the hotels, pay the film actors, we pay for everything.
“In Benin, I have never seen any government’s assistant rendered to anybody or from any cooperate organizations.
“We are the only ones helping ourselves and people still criticize that we act locally. No assistant from government but go to Enugu, the government assist them. At times, the government takes care of their hotel bills,” he said.
The multiple award winning musician cum actor however said he can never quit music and that it is only death that can put an end to it.
“But it is only death that will take music from me,” he said.

Why I Rarely Use Social Media – Music Executive
Businessman and music executive, Emperor Geezy, has explained why he is not active on social media platforms.
Born Festus Ehimare, Emperor Geezy is the Chief Executive Officer and Founder of G-Worldwide Entertainment.
He said his oftentimes long absence on social media platforms was to ensure he pushed out quality content rather than clout-chasing.
Sharing his plans for the Nigerian entertainment industry in a statement on Monday, Geezy said his commitment to seeking talents in Nigeria and across Africa has limited his online presence.
According to him, G-Worldwide Entertainment as an incubator for new talent and a hub for African music is raising the bar for not just Nigerian musicians and actors, but also for Africa as a whole.
“I got A&R in and outside African countries in search of great talent. My motto is one of the reasons I only show up on social media with something new, and not, cloud chasing.
“As a businessman, owning multiple businesses in Nigeria has made me more of an introvert for social media”.
He, however, said his absence on social media “doesn’t limit me from socializing behind the scenes; but not on social media, real-life stuff”.
On his plans for the industry, Emperor Geezy said he would be focusing on growth and committed to creating the right environment for talents to flourish.
“G-Worldwide is not just a record label, but a 360-entertainment company, housing a music and movie production division and providing the best of our services on music recording, music publishing, music and film distribution, film production, talent management, film promotion, promotional recording, radio promotion, and a lot more.
“As industry experts, we focus on growth and creating a conducive environment for talents in the entertainment industry,” he said.
Talents discovered by Emperor Geezy include Iceberg Slim, Kizz Daniel, Sugarboy, and DJ Shabsy.
