Pat Attah: Why I stopped acting, relocated to Germany

Pat Attah, the actor, has revealed why he left Nollywood and relocated to Germany.

During a recent chat with Teju Babyface, Attah said he got into the entertainment industry because of his passion for the arts and not for fame.

The 48-year-old actor said as he became famous, he felt constrained by the public’s expectations. He added that the pressure led him to take a break and move to a place where he could live more freely.

When I got into the entertainment industry, I was not necessarily doing it for fame, I was doing it for the passion, the passion I have for the arts, he said.

Fame was not my goal when I got into entertainment, so when it got really too much, I felt like I was not living the normal life I would like to live. I was basically living my life for people. Because when you are famous, you automatically become a role model to a lot of people, there are certain things you want to do freely that you are restricted from doing to a large extent.

‘You do not want people to think, ‘Why would Pat Attah get into a taxi? Why would he get on a bus? Why would he be riding a bicycle on the street?’ I was not living as freely as I would love to be. That is why I decided to take a break and go to a place where I know people also know me, but not as much as back home.

Attah was popular in Nollywood in the late 90s and early 2000s. He featured in films like Spirit of Love, Extreme Measures, Colour of Money, and Never Believe Me.

He, however, stopped acting and relocated to Germany in 2005.
