.Nollywood actor and screenwriter, Samuel Olasehinde, son of Pa James (Ajirebi Kayode Olasehinde), who is now in his mid-twenties.
He has featured in Yoruba-speaking movies over the last decade.
In a recent chat with Saturday Beats, Olasehinde noted that even though he makes people laugh naturally, he doesn’t have any intention to build his acting career around comedy.
Mentioning his father’s influence on his career, Samuel who started acting at the age of five revealed that his father’s name has opened many doors for him.
His father is Ajirebi Olasehinde, who is popularly known as Pa James. The 61-year-old comedy actor was one of the faces that ruled Nollywood in its early age. In fact, Pa James and his colleagues of that period did a lot to shape the industry which has now blossomed following the addition of new talents and better educationally exposed young actors including his son, Samuel.
He said, “Nobody ever tried to box me into comedy; I don’t even have plans to start a career in that field. I am too serious for that. Interestingly, when I host events, there is always a touch of humour but I don’t want to be restricted to any specific role. Even though I studied law at the university, I was always seen at the Department of Dramatic Arts. I studied law for the sake of knowledge and exposure.
A lot of things have changed in the industry compared to the time when I was a child; the industry is now more competitive and economically marketable. There are more talents in the industry, there are no ‘customised’ roles for anyone, and an actor must strive to stay on top of their game. In the past, actors could afford to perform badly and still believe that producers would still call them, but things have changed.
The storytelling technique has also changed; it has more influence on the society than before.”
