nene said...

he has experience for ten years so what? this guy is too stiff for someone who has been acting for such a long time.na th organizers sabi. he is not a god actor and he is to boring to watch, but he did quite good in mr and mrs.

Anonymous said...

seun akindele is better than joseph benjamin. i watched joseph when he was on that mnet show with norbert young, and seun in SPIDER. joseph benjamin is not a good actor but he's not bad, but seun is better and more expressive.

Anonymous said...

joseph benjamin, E4PR, and royal arts academy clan stop coming here to defend him. nobody cares or knows him. there are only 30 something comments, most of which are from you people. he is not a good or popular actor and will never be. keep on buying awards from the whole world. you people and your actors can't act or direct films.
