A video clip has surfaced online showing veteran Nollywood star Olu Jacobs performing in a '70s sitcom in the United Kingdom.
In a career spanning over four decades, the actor has maintained his place as one of the most beloved stars in the movie industry but not many know that his acting started in various British shows and series in the 1970s.
Olu Jacobs' charismatic presence is undeniable in the short clip shared online. He plays the role of a TV repairman who is called in to fix a faulty television set.
Amid the laughter and chatter of the others on screen, the Nigerian actor enters the scene and while he does his thing, the others watch him, probably with skepticism.
It doesn't take long before the TV is fixed and while smiling, Jacobs' character takes a jab at his African roots by saying in his deep resonant voice, "Magic! Black magic!!", to cheers from the audience.
