Samuel Abiola Robinson, 23, is a Nigerian actor who appears in Nollywood and Malayalam films. The actor has gone from Nollywood to Bollywood with 'Sudani from Nigeria,' a film about a poor Nigerian footballer who wins an opportunity to travel to India to represent an international team.
The movie focuses on the struggles faced by a foreigner working in a strange country. It also explores the dynamics of his relationship with his manager, teammates, Indians, and the pressure to provide a better life for his poor family.
It was reported that the producers of the movie were searching for young male Nigerian actors on the Internet when they came across Robinson's pictures.
The up and coming star became not only the first Nigerian, but also the first black person in history to play a lead role in an Indian Movie.
Samuel Robinson's career began in 2013. He has since appeared in several major productions such as Desperate Housewives Africa, Tinsel, Shuga, among others.
