The name 2Slim may not really ring a bell in the home video sector, for those whoÂ are very conversant with Christian stage acting, he is surely a talent to behold.
Born Dayo Oluwasesin, 2Slim has already carved a niche for himself both as a stageÂ actor and stand-up comedian. But right now, his ambition is to break into theÂ mainstream of the make-believe world, Nollywood.
2Slim, who is also known as Fela, owing to the fact that he has a similar body frameÂ with the late Afrobeat legend, is of theÂ opinion that more professionals are neededÂ in the movie industry, particularly in the Yoruba genre.
According to 2Slim, â€œI think the industry needs someone like me. With my wealth ofÂ experience as a stage actor, Iâ€™m very optimistic about the change that I will bringÂ to the industry. I have patiently waited to take this step and I think it is now orÂ never. That doesnâ€™t mean Iâ€™m here to make unnecessary noise or fame. I just want toÂ make a difference and move the industry forward.â€
NollywoodReel gathered that as a stand-up comedian, he has anchored a couple ofÂ celebrity events, yet, he is not relenting in his oars.
