Actor Kanayo Engages Son in Filmmaking as Assistant Manager


Kanayo stressed in the video that his son should receive the same treatment as any other crew member since he is present at work. Nigerian veteran actor and lawyer, Kanayo O. Kanayo, widely recognized as K.O.K., has revealed that his eldest son, Clinton Onyeze Mbaise, is now part of the Nollywood film industry.

Kanayo revealed this in a video he posted on his Instagram page on Monday noting that his son will be joining his production company, Simpliciter Associates Productions, as an assistant production manager and personal assistant to him.

Kanayo emphasized in the video that his son should be treated like any other crew member because he is there to work and should not be given any preferential treatment because of his kinship.

He stated, “Meet Clinton Onyeze Mbaise, my eldest son. Today, he joins us as the assistant production manager and as my assistant.

“Please, do not treat him differently because he’s my son. I’m cautioning everyone about this. He’s here to work and will be compensated like any other individual. Let’s refrain from referring to him solely as K.O.K.’s son. I won’t tolerate that. Let’s regard him as an integral part of the production team.”

KOK also revealed that Clinton recently graduated from Babcock University, majoring in Information and Communication Technology (ICT). He stated, “So, he’s joining us today. He’s fresh out of Babcock University, where he pursued ICT. He’ll be shadowing the production manager to learn the ropes.

“Treat him respectfully, just as you treat everyone else with respect. That’s the kind of environment I want him to thrive in. It would help if you didn’t indulge my son in ways that would compromise his growth,” he emphasized.

In his caption, Kanayo mentioned that Clinton will initially focus on studies in management and filmmaking before exploring other areas of interest. He also believed that it’s valuable for children to gain experience working within their family’s businesses or other enterprises.

“We should encourage our children to gain firsthand experience in our organizations or other workplaces to understand the value of hard work and industry. Congratulations, Onyeze. Welcome aboard Simpliciter Associates Productions,” he wrote in his caption.
