Veteran Nollywood Comic Actor, Nkem Owoh popularly called Osuofia is reported to have rejected APC’s presidential candidate, Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s offer of ₦10m.
According to sources, the Veteran Nollywood Actor said ₦10 Million cannot buy his endorsement as 2023 is critical for the collective good of all citizens and would never be sold.
It was learnt that Osuofia was offered 5 million Naira initially for endorsement of the candidate, but he refused. Even when the offer was doubled on account of his worth, he still refused.

This is coming after another veteran, Zack Orji, who is equally an Igbo was approached and he accepted.
Following the news, tweeps have lashed on this to have a sway at the politician, actor alike.
See below some reactions:
They’re now offering money to celebrities to endorse Agbado. Don’t be surprise to see more endorsements in the coming days. You will even hear stories like “my village people were pursuing me in the dream, only Agbado came to rescue me” Nkem Owoh just rejected their 10m offer!

One is a sellout who accepted money from APC and the other is one of the greatest Nolywood actors who rejected 10million from APC because he won't sell our future. I know who my #GOAT𓃵 is. Retweet for Zack Orji, Like for Nkem Owoh. #PeterObi #LP pic.twitter.com/Vnohy3Wmij

That is the more reason why we must reject APC and Tinubu. Bribery and corruption are in their blood. Nkem Owoh has rejected N10m to endorse Tinubu.

Nkem Owoh is an educated man, a lecturer, a man of integrity. no wonder he rejected the offer of N10 million naira to endorse Tinubu & APC but many of his fellow veterans succumbed to the tempting offer and traded their reputation for money. Give dis man of honour likes & rtws 👏 pic.twitter.com/vk0KHwoRa4
