Popular Nigerian actor Samuel Ayibola has official quit his role as ‘Spiff’ in the popular television series ‘The Johnsons’.
Spiff has been a character in the long running television series for almost ten years now with so many episodes and seasons along the years. He joined the show during the premiere of the one of the most watched television shows across Africa in 2012.
Recall Samuel Ayibola couple of weeks ago revealed his intentions of quitting his role in the television show series in a very long statement posted on his official social media platforms, It reads;
Hey, guys. How are you doing? So I have an important message to bring to the general public. For about 10 years now I have sacrificed my time, dedicated my life, as well as all of the God-given creativity within me to serving the Spiff character on The Johnsons television series which undoubtedly for me has fulfilled its purpose in bringing entertainment, happiness, and joy to the African continent as well as also bringing therapeutic healings to the bodies and minds of our people from several testimonies I’ve heard. But as we all know nothing lasts forever and everything that has a beginning definitely has an ending. And as tough as this decision has been for me to make in the past few years, the time has finally come for me to move on and grow into other purposes as I’m in search of new challenges and other ways to entertain our people through other various projects.
I will like to thank the producers of the show for allowing me to showcase one of the many sides of my limitless creative talent as well as all of the fans who have given me fulfillment in enjoying that character. But most importantly I will like to state that my loyalty belongs to Multichoice. What this means, in general, is that I have not quit acting. It only means that I’m making more time in order to fulfill other purposes and to do other things. Thank you and God bless.”
In a new update, the actor on Twitter has now official announced that fans of the show will not be seeing him on their screens playing the role of ‘Spiff’ in the ‘The Johnsons’ anymore.
It’s difficult to let go but it’s time to officially announce on this platform as I quit my role as Spiff in The Johnsons. Thanks to everyone for your undying support and love, I couldn’t have asked for more. I’ve got time on my hands and not much on my side, I’ve to move on.
