I’m Processing Admission To UI—Sanyeri


Actor, Olaniyi Afonja, popularly known as Sanyeri, has said he is procession admission to study at the University of Ibadan.

The Oyo-born actor who said people will be scared of his English, when he gets to institution, explained that “Yes, I am already processing that. I am thinking of going to the University of Ibadan.”

In an interview with Sunday Punch, Sanyeri said that “I had little education when I was younger but I didn’t have the opportunity to go further. The little schooling I had is responsible for the ‘small’ English I speak now.  However, when I go back to school, my English will become so sound that people will be scared.”

Sanyeri would later revealed how he met his wife in 2004 “when showing my movie at the National Theatre, Iganmu, Lagos, and it was during a Muslim festival. A lot of people came to the theatre to watch plays that day and my wife was one of them. However, she didn’t give me audience because she said I had tribal marks. When I asked for her number, she gave me her mother’s number. So, I kept on disturbing her mother with calls until she advised me to stop wasting my money on airtime because she felt that her daughter wasn’t interested. But when my wife came to the national theatre again to see a movie, I approached her and the rest is history.”

He said his wife is always happy whenever he acts like a dunce in movies. “I don’t think she has got a better job for me. That is the job I do to take care of her and the family.

My wife knows that my job is very demanding. She knows that when it’s time to work, I do so with utmost concentration. Also, when I am at home with my family, I don’t go out. I spend quality time with them so they will enjoy my presence. I don’t go to the club; neither do I go to places that I am not invited to. If I am not working, I stay home, no matter how long.
