In a recent interview, the Father of three who doubles up as a successful businessman declared his interests in acting and also vowed to take over Nollywood industry, "Nollywood is no doubt the largest entertainment and movie industry in Africa. They have the lots of talented stars with global recognition. My aim is to make a difference and possibly take over as one of the best actor out there." he said.

Asked why he had to switch from music to acting, he said ," Am an all round entertainer who likes to explore and gain experience from numerous fields. In fact, during my primitive years, I started as an actor, appearing on some family shows like , mummy's favourite, Sun rise and many others. This has really helped me to gain the experience so I feel confident I will make it here too."

Gabriel was discovered by Aflik TV, an internationally recognised distributor of Nollywood movies and African inspired contents. He now motivates young Africans from across the continent to feel comfortable pursuing their dreams and striving to become the best version of them.
