When I get to varsity, people will be scared of my English – Sanyeri 2

Actor, Olaniyi Afonja, popularly known as Sanyeri, speaks to JOY MARCUS about the challenges he encountered in his early days in the industry and other issues

I was very funny as a young boy and I always made customers at my mother’s store laugh. Then, I met a friend who advised me to join him in the movie industry. He took me to his boss, the late Prince Oluseyi Adeoye, who trained me and that is how my career started. I have been in the industry since 1993.

Back then, acting was not regarded a lucrative job

Which schools did you attend?

I didn’t really go to school.

Do you have the intention of going back to school?

Yes, I am already processing that. I am thinking of going to the University of Ibadan.

Why didn’t you go to school when you were younger?

Yes, I am already processing that. I am thinking of going to the University of Ibadan.

Why didn’t you go to school when you were younger?

I had little education when I was younger but I didn’t have the opportunity to go further. The little schooling I had is responsible for the ‘small’ English I speak now.  However, when I go back to school, my English will become so sound that people will be scared.
