Veteran Nollywood actor, Olu Jacobs, has revealed that he was once addressed as a dog by a white woman while London.

The 75-year-old thespian attended the prestigious Royal Academy of the Arts in London and featured in a lot of British theatre and film productions till he returned to Nigeria many years later.

Jacobs told Punch that he was a victim of racism on many occasions in the UK.

He said, “I was a victim of racism all the time. You felt it in the way the people looked at you and in their attitude toward you. But you could not do anything about it. I could not take somebody to court for that.

“A white woman once called me a dog. She had a vacant room for rent. But when I approached her, she asked if I didn’t see the ‘No dogs’ sign on her door.

“Before I could respond, she said that a dog was better than me and then slammed the door in my face. I felt so bad that I almost decided to return to Nigeria.”
