But what has the iconic actor been up to all the while?
According to Linda Ikeji Blog, the 63-year-old veteran resumed work as a lecturer at the Babcock University in Ogun State in 2011, where he taught the History & International Studies students. It is unclear if he still is a staff of the private university.
However, the actor is back on the screen again. This time, he is featuring in a mini-series, Dusk, where he plays a professor.
