Nothing lasts forever, regardless of how much you want it to. Even if you adore something, it is completely normal to grow tired of a hobby or a profession.

Nollywood is full of skilled actors that have proven to be good at what they do. However, when new stars emerge, veteran ones depart. In the previous decade, Nollywood has seen tremendous growth, as well as the abrupt disappearance of some of the best on-screen characters. If you’ve been wondering why you haven’t seen some of your favorite old-time actors in action, I’m here to tell you what happened to them and what they are doing now.

1. Pat Attah

Pat Attah was one of the most well-known faces in Nollywood in the early 2000s. The actor, who was born in Anambra State, relocated to Germany, and is now a musician. His first single, “Sunshine,” was released in 2018.
