Celebrated Ghanaian actor Van Vicker has asserted that, starring in Nigerian movies added a boost to his career.
According to Van he became more popular as an actor because of his works in Nigeria.
Nevertheless, he noted that after starring in The Return of Beyoncé and Princess Tyra in 2007, his fortunes on the Ghanaian film scene began to dwindle. But luckily, he started attracting the attention of movie producers in Nigeria.
“Not to say that Nigerian movies are better. Not to say Nigerian actors are better or their productions are better. I’m just saying their reach is more, their population is large, their purchasing power is large. It was a great enhancement. It just enhanced my career and that is the truth,” he said.
He added that he was preferred by producers in Nigeria because movie lovers in the country “demanded” his presence in their movies.
Van Vicker is also a movie director and the CEO of Sky Orange Production, a film production company.
