Desmond Elliot’s Interview: The root of our problem in Nigeria starts with Tribalism, and not realizing that we are ONE: Watch
Nollywood Ace Director/Actor Desmond sat down with Emma Emerson of Golden Icons to discuss several topics including: his career, transitioning from an actor to a director, who earns more between Nigerian musicians and
Nollywood actors; on how Lagos as a city can benefit from Nollywood. When asked to list the top endorsed actors in Nollywood, he mentioned his humble self and others including,Genevieve Nnaji, Mike Ezuruonye, Chioma Chukwuka Akpotha, Funke Akindele, and Ini Edo, just to mention a few. This NEVER RELEASED interview of Desmond Elliot was done in the Summer of this year ‘2014’, but could not be released due to some technical issues.
Part 2 of this interview got a little more interesting, as IT got down to his family, and talks about being married for 11 years, how he handled having 2 sets of twins, and addressed the previous online rumor that he relocated his family to the United States.
Below is an excerpt from Part 2 of this Interview on his LOVE for his country ‘Nigeria’:

Emma: For what?
