This latest interview with Nigerian Tribune’s Joan Bajojo Omionawele, Ghanaian actor Van Vicker Also talked took his time to address an insult he got from Nollywood actress Genevieve Nnaji
Who are your best Nigerian actors and actresses?
(Laughs) You are not going to put me on the spot with that. I have enjoyed working with all my colleagues.
There was a time Genevieve said you weren’t a good actor. How did you react to that?
I read the article but I wasn’t bothered about it because that was her opinion, and she is entitled to it. I never responded to it, and I don’t think I will. Nevertheless, I don’t have any ill feelings towards her. Now, whether her opinion has changed or is still the same, it doesn’t make much of a difference to me, because I know I am a fantastic actor and I am doing what I am doing with passion. I am enjoying it and I am making the best I can of it.
Having said that, if I am given a job to do and she is involved, I would do the job. I won’t say because she said this, I won’t do the job.
But if you have the urge to confront her, won’t you?
If I meet her at a function or on a movie shoot, I’ll ask her; but I won’t do it through the media. Some of these things people write in the papers or on the blogs are not even true; it’s possible they twisted her words. They do it to me all the time, so it’s possible they did that to her. But when I meet her personally, I will ask her if she did say that. And if she did, the conversation will continue, as to why she said it and how she said it.
