There seems to be an unending crisis in Nigeria’s TV soap opera with the highest number of episode aired, Tinsel has another actor has dumped the production to pursue other career interests.
Tinsel has witnessed the exodus of Damilola Adegbite, Angela and now Chris Attoh, who has spent seven years with the MNET Africa’s production.
The Ghanaian actor, who plays Kwame Mensah in Tinsel, will have his last scenes in the popular soap shot in September.
Attoh thanked the producer of the series and wished them good luck. He said in a statement that, “the last seven years on Tinsel have been an incredible journey and experience for me. Working with MNET was phenomenal and it took a lot of deliberation but I have decided to pursue other career interests.”
Meanwhile, another popular face at Tinsel Gbenro Ajibade has been reportedly suspended from the show. Information made available point that Ajibade may have been suspended because he failed to show up for long sequence of shoots involving his character ‘Soji Bankole.’
If this suspension is true then Gbenro may be facing disciplinary action for being away from set after traveling to the US for the just concluded one week long Africa Fashion show held in New York where he pranced the runway as a model.
There are already concerns the loss of these two actors plus other popular faces that has left the series may further affect ratings.
