“I wish I could have the acting and the music, without the fame.”
~ (a pondering) Pascal Tokodi.
Pretty noble for an award winning actor, right? Pascal Tokodi recently won the ‘Best Supporting Role in a TV Series’ award in the just concluded Riverwood Awards 2016 for his role as Isaac in Pray and Prey. He debuted as an actor in Makutano Junction, the popular on-going series that airs on Citizen TV.
But here’s the cool part, Pascal is so much more than just an actor. Putting his good looks aside, he can serenade a sister out! He’s accomplished a lot as an up-and-coming singer, by being the 2nd runner up at the just concluded Techno Own The Stage karaoke singing competition that took place in Nigeria. That got him a whopping 1 million bob!
“So do you get weird requests from people now that you won the money?” I ask.
“Yeah,” he muses, “all the time. Once, a guy asked me to help him out with his music video. I thought he needed a cameo, which I was cool with. Turns out, he wanted me to fund it!”
Pascal is also single, but he’s not on the look-out. “Why not?”
“Because I’m the type of person who likes to give my relationships my all,” he reflected. “Right now, I spend about 12 hours a day on my career. I’d rather stay single and wait for the right time.” (Ouch. Sorry ladies)
And as for hobbies, he likes to ride bikes. “I once rode from Nairobi to Voi,” he exclaimed in his cheeky way, “I love speed!”
Pascal is currently gearing up to release the video to his new upcoming single, ‘Sitaki’, a song he swears will make the girls swoon.
