"I am first a Christian before becoming an actor. Hence, being an actor should not jeopardise my Christianity in any way. I am representing Christ in the acting field.

Seun shares his take on Christian dressing

In recent times, it has been said that there is nothing like Christian dressing, and it is the heart that matters. Seun gave his two cents on this, saying:

"I agree that it is the heart that matters. Everyone is a product of the intents of his or her heart. Therefore, one's appearance as a believer reflects the state of one's heart because if one has the Holy Spirit residing inside of him or her, the Holy Spirit will also be interested in the individual's personality. Your appearance is also a clear expression of your personality. So, it is expected that you look modest and appealing to the Holy Spirit." b
