According to the actor, the aim of the academy is to inspire the youths in the society, telling them that they can achieve their goals.
The actor also described the academy as a way of giving back to the society, having had a rough start himself.
He said, “Kanayo O Kanayo Mentoring Academy is about mentoring the young ones. It is a way of giving back to the society.”
“The key message of KOKMA is to let the young ones know that they can be whatever they desire to be in life. Therefore, they must be guided in order not to allow any circumstances to limit their desire to excel in life.”
He said, “My team and I have set up a five-year program to ensure that we launch out all around Nigeria, and into many other areas in Africa.”
Kanayo has long been a feature of the Nigerian movie industry since after his first appearance in the famous drama Living in Bondage in 1992. The veteran actor, who has featured in over 100 films is popular for his roles in the movies, Tears in My Heart (2006) and Festival of Fire (2002).
