Versatile Nigerian actor and social sensation, Nasiru Lawal is thrilled about the recognition given to creatives from organizers of the African Magic Video Choice Awards (AMVCA) to content producers with the addition of a new category, Best Online Social Content Creator.

He congratulated the winner of the award, Oga Sabinus, describing him as a worthy winner. He however expressed a tinge of disappointment at missing out on a nomination for the award but promised to continue to give his best.

Nasboi said, “I love the fact that content creators are being nominated now. It’s such a good feeling. My colleague, Sabinus deserves winning. He has been really consistent doing the right thing. He should be applauded and awarded. I didn’t feel so good about not getting a nomination, but we would go harder.”

Meanwhile, Nasboi has revealed that his first music release after a long hiatus from the studio is on the way soon. He disclosed, “I was, and I’m still a musician. Sometime in 2017 I made a sound that sounded similar to Davido’s sound. I could only imagine making that particular sound with him. I am still recording, hopefully, you might hear a Nasboi Davido collaboration.

The talent who was previously signed to a music label owned by Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde revealed, “I had absolutely nothing to do with acting while growing up. But I have a deep love for cinematography and photography. I could tell stories and mimic characters too. I grew into acting. It’s not like I have this whole thing planned. After all, I didn’t even see myself make skits. I will love to produce and direct movies too. I have featured in three movies and about two soap operas. I don’t take actors for granted. The job is really tasking, do I want to do more moves? Oh yes.”

Although he hails from Osun State, Nasiru Lawal was raised in Port Harcourt. He began his primary education at Bright International Nursery and completed it at Primary School, Shalom International Nursery and Primary School, both the capital city of Rivers State. He proceeded to Istan Comprehensive High School and later, Ogba Comprehensive High School. The graduate of Mechanical Engineering from University of Uyo, Akwa Ibom had no prior exposure to music or acting.
