From The Screen To Street – The Story Of Nollywood Actor Who Abandoned Acting For Street Evangelism

Posted by on November 6, 2021 — Drop A Comment

When the call to serve God hits you, it doesn’t matter where you are at that moment or what you are doing you must obey the call. 

That is the story of how veteran Nollywood actor Charles Okafor abandoned the screen to embrace the street.

Life is really paradoxical, most people are looking for an opportunity to appear on the glittering screen, and others that get the opportunity are taking a bow out of the industry. I am talking about the famous Charles Okafor who is now an ordained man of God.

Charles Okafor gained public relevance in the Nigerian movie industry during the reign of Saint Obi, Zack Orji, and Richard Mofe Damijo aka RMD, and the host of others who were the leading light.

The story of Charles Okafor is a perfect reflection of what happened in the Bible. 

God gave Jonah a simple task; go to a place called Nineveh and tell the people living there to turn from their bad ways. Jonah was reluctant and didn’t want to go. He was constantly running away from fulfilling God’s call. In a dramatic bravado, he found himself in Nineveh. We remember how the story ended. 

In the case of Charles Okafor, during his conversion, Charles hinted that he neglected God’s call to embrace the screen.

In 2013, when Charles Okafor realized his relationship with God, he decided to bow out of the movie industry and fully gave his life to Christ, at the point of conversion, he made a new decision to serve God and win souls for Christ. He is now an ordained pastor sharing the news of God, engaging in intensive evangelism, and winning souls for Christ.

He is now an ordained pastor sharing the good news of Christ at every nook and cranny, engaging in intensive evangelism, and winning souls for Christ.

Today, the name is not as popular as when he was still in the movie industry, he is so busy with the gospel traveling to different countries and remote villages to fulfill God’s call. ‘Go into the world and preach the gospel’.
