Big Brother Naija Season 6 runner-up, Pere Egbi, has hinted he has teamed up with Yvonne Nelson in an upcoming project in February.
Pere who is an actor and a model has starred in a number of Nollywood and Hollywood movies.
Pere is in Ghana to meet his fan whom he affectionately calls the Patroits and also to build his brand and collaborate with industry players.
In an interview with Konkonsa Kester on YFM, Pere said, ““I am in Ghana now to see my Patriots and also do more personal things here. For me, I aspire to do a lot more than I’m doing in terms of acting, getting more gigs, hosting jobs in Nigeria and across the globe. I’m also doing a movie here with Yvonne Nelson sometime in February. I am grateful to be on such a project. She is a great actress and icon when it comes to African entertainment,” he told Kokonsa Kester on Y107.9 FM’s Weekend Rush.
The actor also revealed that his passion for acting encouraged him to end his stint with the military.
“I was an actor in Nigeria before moving to the US. Although I started with small gigs, the passion is what made the difference for me. So, when I moved to America to join the military, I always had it in mind that it was not what I wanted in the long run, like forever. So, when my contract with the US military was up, I just left, because I had the passion for something I loved which was acting and getting involved in the Nigerian entertainment industry and the growth of it. That is why I am now here,” he said.
