Timini Egbuson has boasted that with what he has achieved so far, he is the “biggest actor in Africa”.


Egbuson, on the latest episode of the Menisms podcast, claimed he cleared the way for “a lot of new school actors”.

The 36-year-old film star said he had been “acting consistently for fifteen years without having to take time away from the screens or a period where he fell off”.

The TV star argued that his “achievements over the years” are what makes him the “biggest actor in Africa”.


“I have been acting consistently for fifteen years. I have never had a time off, never had a time that I fell off, never had a time that I was not relevant for fifteen years consistently. I believe that I genuinely opened up the way for a lot of new school actors,” he said.

“I also believe that I genuinely opened up the leading young male actor category. I say this humbly because when I started, when I joined Nollywood, there were no roles for young guys.

“You either have to be an old man or a young babe, the other guys were always acting as someone’s son or someone’s boyfriend. Nobody was actually writing lead roles for young men.


“I genuinely believe that if you put everything that I have done, like everything that I have been able to accomplish. I believe that I am the biggest actor in Africa.”

Timini has made a name for himself in the Nigerian movie industry for his acting skills.

He has acted in a plethora of hit movies like ‘Breaded Life’, ‘Elevator Baby’, ‘Introducing the Kuju’s’, ‘Dinner At My Place’, and ‘A Tribe Called Judah’.

He has also won numerous awards.
