Below are excerpts from Jibola Dabo's interview with Nigeria's Punch Newspaper:  

  • Which movie would you say has been your most challenging? 

I hate to advertise for any movie and I believe every movie I have been a part of has been challenging in several ways. However, the movie that I had to put extra effort is also the movie I hate the most, ‘Dirty Secrets.’ I played a role that is totally different from who I am in reality. I hate the character I played and for me to do it well, I had to become the character. I had to hate myself while doing so. It was bad. After the movie, I had to keep telling myself that the character I portrayed was not who I am. 

  • Have you watched the movie? 

I don’t want to see it. I have been asked if I could play such a role again and I told them ‘yes’ but only if I have access to the post-production stage. There are some things that should have been edited in the movie that were not removed. There are some things an actor would do to make his acting real that should be edited but they released the movie like that. It was so raw and it was terrible for them to put everything out there.

  • You acted alongside the late Muna Obiekwe in the movie you’re talking about… 

I felt sad about it. But the young man had been sad for a while because he had been careless about his health. He drank too much alcohol and he didn’t remember that he had a liver. He was also a chain smoker, but of course, there are also people that do it and live longer. I was saddened that we had lost another star because he was a great actor. 

Now that you've read about Jibola Dabo's shameful regret for acting gay role with Muna Obiekwe; please read and answer the following questions: 

  • First, what advice do you have for Papa Dabo?

    Stop feeling guilty for the role you played ask God for forgiveness and move on, but in the near future avoid taking up roles that disturb your conscious. .. Gay movies should be banned in Nollywood for good
