- Some actors and actresses in the Nigerian movie industry have become victims of stereotypes because of the roles they play in films
- A handful of fans have a hard time separating the celebrities from their onscreen characters as they are constantly on the look-out for real-life similarities
- Legit.ng has compiled a list of Nollywood stars who have been linked to the occult simply because of their movie roles
It is not uncommon for actors and actresses to take on out-of-character roles since the intention of every movie is to temporarily suspend reality for viewers.
While these seasoned actors put in their best to bring characters to life in the most convincing ways, the problem is always at the hands of viewers who refuse to move on at the end of every film.
This is also made worse by casting directors who make actors and actresses fall into a stereotypical box by making them play the same roles over and over again.
For instance, an avid Nollywood follower will not be convinced if Patience Ozokwor plays the role of a compassionate mother-in-law or stepmother.

Unfortunately, these same stereotypes have now followed some of these stars who have been brave enough to take on occult roles in movie productions.
In fact, veteran actor Kanayo O. Kanayo has eventually had to embrace the narrative that he does money rituals after he failed to convince people otherwise in posts meant to debunk the rumours.
Just like Kanayo, Legit.ng has compiled a list of other movie stars who have been linked to the occult simply because of their roles in movie productions. Check them out below:

I've never kissed you in movies, RMD to colleague Sola Sobowale
Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously gathered a report about Sola Sobowale and Richard Mofe-Damijo aka RMD, two Nollywood favourites who have come a long way.
The pair worked together on Kemi Adetiba's Netflix movie, Return of the King and they sat together to discuss their careers.
RMD noted in the conversation that he first met Sola Sobowale thirty-seven years ago and they have worked on different projects ever since. He said it recently hit him that they have played a couple on different sets but he has never kissed her in a movie.
