5 Nollywood actors who are University lecturers (photos)

There is a stage you get to in your profession that you feel the need to pass on the knowledge you have to the coming generation. This happens in all spheres of life but not everyone has the passion or capabilities to do so. 

Many actors have film schools nowadays but there are some people to took it to another level by educating people at the tertiary level, sometimes, they teach Creative/Theater Arts and are inspirations to the students, other times, they pass on other knowledge that they are comfortable with.
