Speaking to H-Metro, he said:
“It’s recently that I have started acting.
” I have a feature film coming out too, a comedy and another Netflix movie.
“I started acting late last year but most of the stuff is yet to be released,” he said.
“I was casted by well-known director for Isibaya-Adze Utah.
” They needed someone who can pull off an American accent and Jamaican accent to resemble a New York based gangster.
“When the diamond comes to New York, I meet the buyer who is coming with the diamond from Johannesburg.
” He thinks he is about to sell the diamond and get cash from me, but it’s a trap.
My goons shoot him and we take the diamond.”
The film is based on a story of a couple of amateur thieves who accidentally steal diamonds, which is one of the most valuable precious jewels in the world.
