Olaniyi Afonja, one of the popular comic actor in the Nollywood industry known as “Sanyeri”, speaks about his family and inability to speak English Language.
He said the inability for him to communicate in the English Language has hindered him a lot.
Sanyeri, an indigene of Oyo State explained that he only ended his education at the secondary school level.
When he finished his secondary education, he went into acting because of passion.
His advice to the younger ones is to focus on their education and be passionate about it.
But despite the fact that he can’t communicate in the English Language, he is taking roles in the industry.
He mixes both English and Yoruba Language or sometimes Pidgin in the roles as a Yoruba actor.
He also said that if he had gotten sound and enough education, his brand and name would have become bigger than this.
Upon everything, Sanyeri is still grateful to God and speaking on why he had to relocate to Canada with his family.
Reason being that he does not want his family to experience the rough beginnings he went through.
Sanyeri said he had no regret of having tribal marks.
Although he had challenges on it when he started acting, his passion for acting kept him going.
He is married to his beautiful and supportive wife 13 years ago.
They are blessed with two cute boys, Olasunkanmi and Boluwatife.
Olaniyi Afonja is ready to go back to school and also after the success of his children.
