Why I left Nigeria For Ghana – Veteran Actor, Hanks Anuku Opens Up

Hanks Anuku was known back in the days for the thrilling villain roles that he played in Nigerian movies.

Hanks Anuku, the veteran Nollywood actor, has opened up on why he abandoned Nigeria and moved to Ghana.

Anuku was known back in the days for his villain roles in Nigerian movies.

However, speaking with BBC Igbo, the actor said he stayed in Ghana because it’s easy to work there and the country is more organized.

“What made me leave Nigeria was that, sometimes, one gets bored. I have lived in England, the US, in Italy. A lot has happened with me since the 90s.

“I found Ghana more organised. I don’t have time to condemn anyone but the electricity in that country is stable there and I liked it. It was also easy to work there and progress. That’s the truth,” he said.

Anuku also admitted that although he made mistakes before his departure he was never involved in any shady business.

“I’ve travelled far and wide. I am content with what I have. I don’t do robberies, apart from the ones I act in the movies.

“It is not easy to live in Nigeria. Most of the time, I cast my burden on God,” he said.
