Don Jazzy couldn’t hold back his awe when meeting legendary Nollywood actor, Kanayo O. Kanayo for the first time, in a viral social media video. The music producer and businessman was pleasantly surprised when he met the veteran Living in Bondage star while running errands.
Jazzy who least expected to see Kanayo was heard teasing his friend about his love for making videos when he sighted the veteran actor. He immediately prostrated, as a showing of profound respect and admiration. Kanayo who seemed quite pleasured to meet the music mogul gestured him to get on his feet and both celebrities exchanged a warm hug.
Quite renowned for his Instagram shenanigans, the Don took to the platform to share the incident, writing: “I just met the legendary @kanayo.o.kanayo for the first time ever. I’m star struck. What a pleasant surprise. Thanks @vintagedeluxeinteriors for the intro. ”
Kanayo O. Kanayo’s work in Nigeria’s film and TV industry will never be forgotten. As one of the pioneers of modern day Nollywood, the actor, who was recently called to bar, has starred in over 200 movies, notable ones including Billionaires Club, Blood Money, Living in Bondage Series, and Lionheart, to name but a few. Jazzy has a somewhat similar influence on Nigeria’s music industry, save for his number of active years so far. Perhaps this was a meeting of two giants, and we are happy for the mutual fans.
