Today I am honored to share an interview with Justus Esiri, Nollywood Legendary Actor.
He has been a regular face through the stage, national television and of course Home video since the early 70s that he needs no real introduction. However, very few know the story of his life because he is not the kind who will readily give in to an interview that will talk about such. Some journalists dread his disciplinary disposition because he has no room for so called dullards who are not up on their feet. He gives audience to Home Video People and this is it.
Declared one of the strong men of the African film industry, Justus Esiri has indeed earned his fame. He attended Urohobo College and later went to Germany to study engineering where he developed an interest for theater. Thus he began his acting career on stage in Germany. He was the only Nigerian male performing on stage in the years 1968/69.

He said, God has been very nice to me. I have very disciplined children. Six of them. Five are already graduated. My last baby is going to the university. Three of my children are married and have given me grandchildren. One is a banker and a finance man. He is a chartered accountant, I have a daughter who is a accountant. I also have one who is an economist. Apart from these one of my sons is a dental surgeon while the other is a geologist. It is my son who is a dental surgeon that is into hip hop music and he is doing well at it and I wish him the very best. SID is the name of Justus Esiri’s son whom studied Dental Surgery before becoming a superstar rapper.
Apart From Acting, What Else Are You Passionate About?
I play golf, If you were not here now, I would have been at the golf course. I play anywhere but my club is Ikeja. When you play golf, you have no time for any other thing. It is the golf course and then your house. But it is very interesting to play golf really.
Justus Esiri gave Sporah a character to play during the interview "I want you to act as my wife, a real African woman"
Sporah plays the character very well and Justus Esiri was very impress.
I am deeply humbled and honoured to have him on the show as he is an incredible gentleman and a kind.
IT'S A SHOW NOT TO BE MISSED.!
