Udokwu made this known during an interaction with the media before the 2018 Africa Movie Academy Awards, AMAA, which held in Kigali, Rwanda.

The ‘Living In Bondage’ star said, “The rest of Africa should be grateful to Nigeria – Nollywood – for telling the African story nd making it big around the globe. We shouldn’t be talking about competition in the African movie industry, rather, we should be talking about collaboration because there are many stories to be told in Africa by Africans.

Bob Manuel Udokwu, a veteran actor and one of the founding actors of Nollywood, applauded the efforts of the organisers of AMAA in bridging the gaps between the African movie industries.

Bob Manuel Udokwu became a famous face in Nigeria after he starred in classic TV series, Checkmate, which starred late Fred Agu, Ego Boyo and Richard Mofe Damijo amongst several others.

Bob-Manuel Udokwu and Kate Henshaw in “When the Sun Sets”

Kate Henshaw took her followers back to 1993, when she starred in her debut Nollywood movie “When the Sun Sets.”

The actress shared a photo of herself alongside Bob Manuel-Udokwo on the cover jacket of the classic movie.

“When the Sun Sets” was a movie that starred the two talented veterans as a couple. It has been 24 years, and most scenes from the movie are not easy to remember.

However, we still remember Kate Henshaw’s character serving her husband with three balls of eba for lunch, after one of their misunderstandings.
