Veteran Nollywood actor, Victor Olaotan, who has spent over five decades in the entertainment industry, has said he is not ready to retire anytime soon.

The former Tinsel star said showbiz has always been part of him.

He said, “I am a 2nd or 3rd generation Lagosian. And growing up, I have always admired being in showbiz. I grew up in the days of late Bobby Benson, Victor Olaiya, show men of those days Fatai Rolling Dollars, Funsho Adeolu, Adeolu Akinsanya (Baba Eto), Fela was just coming up then.”

Victor pointed that he admired late Fela Anikulapo-Kuti, who he said used to come to his neighbourhood to see a lady he was then dating.

“If you are in the entertainment and showbiz business, I don't think there is retirement, even abroad.

“All these actors keep going until one day you hear they died. I think I am probably going to die in action. God giving me the grace to grow old, gracefully and not have any ailment. Currently I have no ailments and I thank God for that,” he told City People magazine.
