An actor in the Nigerian film industry named King Joel, who left the country some years ago to United State of America (USA) for studies, has ventured into the music industry. King Joel, like some of his other colleagues, has tried his luck in the highly competitive sector.
The public shy actor, who has also produced some flicks, has not hidden his love for music. Those who know him very well can also attest to this.
It will interest you to know that the actor recently released a track title ‘Proud to be African’, which is more of national anthem for Africans, particularly Nigerians, that the continent is beyond slavery, fraud and backwardness as being speculated and believed by the West.
The track is enjoying air play on top radios stations as well as massive internet downloads.
We can tell you authoritatively that ‘Proud to be Africa’ is not just a song to listen to once or seen as a mere song, but more of a campaign track for Nigerians and Africans home and diaspora to tell great things about their land.
In the past, star actors like Genevieve Nnaji, Omotola Ekeinde, Ramsey Nuoah, Jim Iyke, Shan George and others have tried music.
