Popular Nollywood actor, Uzor Arukwe has described his character in Nigeria’s highest box office grossing film, ‘A Tribe Called Judah’ as the most challenging role he has ever played.

Arukwe, who plays Chidoke, an Igbo businessman and money launderer in the film, said the role was challenging because he had to consciously use the Igbo man’s dialect and enunciation of ‘R’s’ and ‘L’s’.

He disclosed this during a recent interactive session with fans on X platform.

A curious fan asked, “[What’s] The most challenging role you have ever played?”

Arukwe replied, “A Tribe Called Judah because I had to consciously replace the L word with the R word, to make it feel natural & believable.”

“And you nailed it. Well done bro. Thank you too,” she wrote.
