Nollywood producer and critique, Charles Novia, has thrown in the axe and this time around it landed on the door step of former BBA star, Tayo Faniran, who is now a TINSEL actor who is being used in place of Gbenro Ajobade.

Charles explained that it is so sad that producers would stoop so low to use reality show contestants as new faces in the movie industry without respect for the noble profession.

He stressed that Tayo might have lots of fan base but that does not give him the guarantee of being a good actor as he has to get some acting lessons if he really wants to succeed in the industry.

According to him, “My award for the worst actor on Nigerian TV presently, would be the ex-BBA housemate, Tayo Faniran who's standing in for Gbenro in TINSEL. I have been watching his act on the series and it's either the casting director lives in Mars or there's suspended reality there somewhere. All this 'fine boy, come act' crap Producers shove in the faces of viewers have to stop! It's killing the arty side of a noble profession

“Talent is like a mirror; you can't fake it. Tayo shouldn't be on screen as an actor in the first place. Come on! Whose bright idea please? His projection is zero, articulation like a kid with a toffee stuck in the mouth and visualisation of character absolutely terrible! Haba! I know he's got a lot of fans and all but that's not helping this case. Either he goes for acting lessons or sticks to presenting that show.

“Acting is serious business and not to be trifled with. Reality shows are not to be used as automatic back passes for tepid actors. Yep! His counterparts before him, ex-reality show 'stars', are not much better too. However, Tayo is dovetailing on bad precedents too.

“There must be something else the dude can do better and I am sure he can, if they stop lying to him about any acting ambitions. D.O.A. I rest my case. And my opinion is basically my opinion, though I am sure this one is mostly everyone's muted opinion too.”
