Read what fans had to say about his post below:
"First time you're not directing in a long time and just simply acting. Must be weight off your shoulder."
"Obviously, the result will be huge. Well done, Egbon."
"That your role is a case study. Heard the story of the ajala the traveller bout weeks ago. A movie needs to be done about that man too. A well-travelled man but tragic broke ending."
"NICE JOB... Debo Macaroni could qualify for Ebenezer Obey lol."
