I still pack plates, clean our house – Zack Orji

Veteran Nollywood actor, director and producer, Zack Orji, yesterday said that his life, work and lifestyle have influenced so many people, adding that he still engages in domestic chores in his home.

The film director, one of the pioneers of the movie industry, told Punch that he is not thinking of leaving any legacy for his children and the society, but to impact positively on people.

According to him, “I do not know about legacy. But I know that my life, work and lifestyle have influenced many people.

“I believe that is the essence of living. God created us to impact positively on others; to empower others and make them realise their dreams.

“Anybody who lived in a way that his or her life did not impact positively on others either knowingly or unknowingly lived a wasted life.”

The film maker, noted that he assists his wife to perform domestic chores, adding that there is no cut out role for anybody in the house.
He added, “I did domestic chores and I still do. In fact, my son slept on my chest the day they returned from the hospital. For me, a man should be willing to do housework because it is his house.

I wash the dishes sometimes. It is not about showing love for one’s wife or one’s family. I just believe that since it is my house, it is something I should do.

“Also, when the children see such a thing, they will endeavour to emulate it. It will become a habit.

“Sometimes, whenever my children are reading, I will pack my plates myself to the kitchen after eating rather than disturb their reading. We have no house maids.

“My children sweep, cook and do other house chores. There are no cut-out roles for my wife or anybody in my house.

“There is no rule that says my wife must cook or do other things. I wash the toilet sometimes, since everything one needs to clean the toilet is there,” he said
