Anyways hia is a lil bio bout him:
Right from primary school, Michael showed a keen interest in the world of television. He worked behind the camera writing scripts on clapper board television.
A good friend of movie producer Jeta Amata, Michael has always been involved in some capacity in the world of Arts and Theater despite having studied Accounting.
The big break:
He was buying fuel at a gas station when he was spotted by Ruke Amata of the Amata Dynasty and this happy coincidence set him on tracks to pursue his most cherished dream of becoming an actor.
The rise to fame:
Popularly nicknamed Fair Mike, the handsome actor quickly proved his talent and capabilities to convince some of the most influential decision makers in Nollywood, namely director Aquilla Njamah and producer Emem Isong to give him a chance. Director Dickson Iroegbu gave him his big break in the movie "Broken Marriage."
His shot 2 fame is d quickest ever observed in the history of Nollywood by any standards, male and female alike.His story is sometimes likened to the fairy tale Cinderella.
To give credit where credit is due, Michael gives accolades to the people who gave him his break and believed in him when he still had everything to prove, namely Aquilla Njamah, Emem Isong, Gabriel Moses and Dickson Iroegbu.
He is ever grateful to the public home and abroad who adopted him instantly and made him the fastest rising star in the Nollywood sky.And last but not least, his eternal gratitude goes to his loving mother for standing by him all the way.
