“I wasn’t getting roles at that time but when I met Ruth Kadiri everything changed” – Chidi Dike reveals

In a recent interview with The Punch, fast-rising star Chidi Dike opened up about his journey to prominence in the film industry and the significant role Ruth Kadiri played in his life.

He emphasized the importance of established performers like Kadiri mentoring and nurturing new talent, believing that such mentorship would benefit the Nollywood industry by fostering a new generation of actors.

“Joining the movie industry was quite challenging. At first, I did not get many acting roles, because I did not know many people in the industry, but I believed I was talented. However, things changed when I met actress Ruth Kadiri.

“I think the industry will be a better place if producers and directors take more time to discover new talents because there are a lot out there.

“The old faces in the industry are already established. They should intentionally bring up younger ones, and build the next generation of artists. The industry will grow even bigger if they can invest in younger people,” he added.
