Celebrities: Their Christmas, plans for 2017 – Part 1
Christmas and New Year season means different things to different people. But for this first set of screen celebrities, the season for them represents an opportunity to show and share love, spend time with loved ones, reflect on the outgoing year and, of course, plan and look forward to a prosperous New Year.
Christmas and New Year, to me, are seasons to love, share and be merry.
So, I am just going to be here, show love, share what I can afford and just be merry, even though the current state of the economy is making that dwindle. One has to do his or her best to keep the spirit alive.
But I will be with the family and I will hang out with some cool friends during the New Year holiday.
As for New Year resolutions, there will be none for me, as I don’t believe in it.
And as for career plan for next year, I have some projects in the pipeline already. I think I will just take things one-step at a time next year.
Easy does it now.

My philosophy of life is, learn to be happy always and all obstacles shall disappear from you.
The devil doesn’t like a happy person, but happiness is the cornerstone of success.
So, this Christmas, I will first of all thank God for His grace upon my life and that of my family. As you know, there is virtually no day that news of obituaries doesn’t fill the air, yet God preserved me and my household. One has to be happy and rejoice in thanksgiving to Almighty God for such wonderful love shown to me.
Secondly is to replicate same love to others, especially the less privileged, who may not have anyone to stand for them. It is time to show more love to them by sharing what God has given me over the months, because the most joyful way to spend Christmas and New Year is to invest in the life of the less privileged.
It has been my way of life for the past few years and I intend to sustain it, by the grace of God. There is no better way to show appreciation to God.
As for New Year resolution, it has become an annual ritual to make pronouncements on “dos” and “don’ts,” but few months in the year the whole thing is forgotten.
So, my resolution is to make more efforts to worship God and let His Will be done upon my life.
On my career plans, I will continue the work on what God has given me already and pray to break new grounds in the industry.
My return to the industry after I took time off for my family has been very eventful and I want to use this opportunity to appreciate Mary Remmy Njoku, who provided me the platform, and to thank my fans for standing by me always. I promise to give them more reasons to appreciate my works and give me more support.
The rest will be left in God’s hands. I wish everyone a wonderful Christmas celebration and peaceful 2017.

Christmas, for me, is family time and giving to those you love and others who don’t have as much as you do.
It is also my stocktaking period and re-strategising for the new year.
The new year will see me birth my own productions for television and films mainly, while consolidating on creation of my own broadcast platforms.
I have had a remarkable year. I have been blessed to be in movies at the cinema that all did above 20 million mark. And I am even more joyed because all films show a delightful range of how far I am willing to stretch myself, as an actor.
From a militant in Oloibiri to a loving husband with a dark secret in The Grudge, then a loving father in the Dinner to a very flawed husband in The Wedding Party.
And, of course, my favourite, 3 Wise Men, where I played an unrepentant hedonist with relentless pursuit of fun, with a few more scheduled for release in the new year.
On television, Hush, I am told is the biggest telenovela in Africa right now, with the highest ratings on cable television.
I have had an amazing come back and am just thankful and grateful to every director or producer that kept faith with me.
I am revved up for the new year, buoyed and excited. Can’t wait.

Christmas and New Year, for me, is a time to relax with loved ones, be happy, reflect and anticipate the coming year.
I am spending this Christmas in Europe with my sisters.
My New Year resolution is to be more involved with the Innercity Missions for Kids in Nigeria.
As for career plans, they are still undergoing finishing touches. I have a couple of them in the works that I will take on next year.
I have an interactive show for actors slated for January next year. So, my dreams keep getting bigger.
