I was not ready for how emotional this became.
Charles Inojie is one of Nollywood’s greats – as an actor, as a director, as a comic. He has made us laugh too many times to remember.
But where did all of that come from? A life of pain.
First his parents’ marriage crashed. Then his mother left when he was only 1. And then his step mother gave his father an ultimatum: To choose between her and his son.
It took him a life time – one of the darkest poverty, deprivation and isolation – before he found his father and his mother again. The story of meeting both again is also heartbreaking.
How does one survive this kind of ongoing tragedy and loss, and make a beautiful life for one’s self?
Charles says the things he shared with me he has never shared with anyone before, not even his closest friends.
It is a priviledge to hold this story, and to share it with the world.
