Veteran Nollywood actor, Femi Brainard, has spoken about his journey following his departure from the entertainment industry to relocate abroad.

The actor, in his latest interview stated that he had to venture into driving to feed his family in America despite being a celebrity.

Brainard revealed this while discussing his ordeal after leaving the entertainment scene.

Reflecting on the advantages and challenges of relocating abroad, he noted that; “As a celebrity, it’s preferable to be a prominent figure in Nigeria than to travel abroad and become unrecognized.

“I became a cab driver in America just to put food on the table. Whenever people see me, especially Nigerian passengers, they often stare at me in disbelief, wondering if I’m indeed the familiar star they recognize.

“America does not recognize your stardom, nor does it respect your celebrity.”
