Jimmy Odukoya Speaks On Leaving Nollywood To Focus On Ministry


Jimmy Odukoya, the newly appointed lead pastor of the Fountain of Life Church, has revealed his determination to continue his acting career despite his prominent role in the church.

The son of the late founder, Taiwo Odukoya, took on his new responsibilities as senior pastor and chairman of the board of trustees on September 17.

Speaking with BBC Pidgin, Jimmy Odukoya expressed his unwavering commitment to both his pastoral duties and his acting career.

He shared how, at first, many were astonished by his ability to balance these seemingly divergent roles.

Jimmy Odukoya recounted a remarkable journey, stating, “God moved me from Nollywood to Hollywood in six years, adding that ‘with Him, nothing is impossible.'”

He remains steadfast in his belief that acting can serve as a powerful tool for conveying essential life lessons.

Reflecting on the initial skepticism he faced, he said, “When I started, people said I could not be a pastor and an actor together. They said the church and the world would not accept me. I was there for six years in an industry that is hard to break into. From Nollywood, I moved to Hollywood. God has shown that with him, nothing is impossible. Although I am focused on the church now, that does not mean I cannot act. Once an actor, always an actor.”
