Since the actor’s lucky break into the spotlight, Uche Maduagwu, has continued to unsettle many celebrities in and outside the country with his jabs and prophesies.
In a new chat with Sunday Scoop recently, Uche opened up on his career, prophesies and more.
Read excerpts from the interview below:
How did your journey into entertainment begin?
I thought I was going to be a very big singer but here we are today, I’m an actor. I used to sing R & B back in the days.
Which university did you attend?
I graduated from the Ebonyi State University where I studied Sociology.
How long have you been in the industry?
I have spent over four years in Nollywood. I often tell people that nobody can make you a star. I always had that at the back of my mind even when I went for auditions and they picked other people. It is only God that can make a star or make you popular and that’s what most people don’t know.
You usually make prophecies online, and some people think they are jokes. Are you some kind of prophet or pastor?
It is not a joke, it’s very real. I have the gift of prophecy and when I say anything, it has to be like that. I’m a very prayerful person.
Which notable things have you predicted that came to pass because you have also said many things that didn’t happen?
Let me just start from the most recent one. I gave a prophecy that Nigeria would qualify for the World Cup. I told the Minister of Sports that Nigeria would qualify, but most people didn’t believe it. Even when I told Mikel Obi before the game that they would win by one goal, he laughed over it. At the end of the day, Nigeria won the game.
Which other instances can you mention?
There are so many of them. Long before Banky W proposed to Adesuwa, I told people that Banky W would marry an actress. If you follow my posts on social media, you would know that I usually call Adesuwa my daughter. I told Banky W that he would marry someone who will be his soul mate. I told him he was going to marry Adesuwa, and today, they are together. I also told Mercy Johnson that she was going to get a government appointment, and it happened just like I said.
