In a post on Facebook on Monday, Fani-Kayode, also a former minister of culture and tourism, disclosed that he made a cameo appearance in the upcoming movie entitled: “Silent Prejudice”.
The former presidential spokesperson revealed that he starred alongside Nollywood veterans of Igbo origin, veteran politicians and businesspersons from the South-East geopolitical region, his wife, Precious, and Dino Melaye, a former senator.

Fani-Kayode explained that although the shooting was gruelling, he enjoyed the exercise and gained massive experience of how the movie industry operates.
The post partly read: “I had the honor and privilege of joining some of the Nollywood greats like Larry Koldsweat, Obi Idejimba and T. Temple on set last Saturday and making a cameo appearance in my debut movie which is a series titled “Silent Prejudice”.
“We were on set the whole afternoon and, though gruelling, it was a great experience and tremendous fun! Many do not know just how hard actors work and the energy and discipline that goes into their craft.
“Being a thespian is no mean feat. It requires total dedication and focus and, having been through what I experienced on Saturday, my respect for them is boundless.
“Thankfully the producer, Mr. Chris Oge Kalu, guided us beautifully and taught us all we needed to know.
“My beautiful wife Precious (@snowhiteey) was also on set with us and encouraged me immensely. She appears in the movie too!”
