Sharing his thoughts on his social media, the actor wrote, “My dear friends, Proximate and distant, today’s march 1st is my birthday. It’s a day of sober reflections. I have a lot to thank God for but a lot to reminisce over. How can I celebrate? We live in very challenging times and at cross roads. The citizenry is divided along ethnic and religious lines. There’s so much waste of lives, innocent blood crying all over the land. How can we have peace? Families are in pain of either want or insecurity. How can I celebrate? My heart goes out to those caught in the web of displacement in their own land, widows, orphans (especially those orphaned by unnecessary killings) and internally displaced persons, who cannot even explain the cause of their displacement. I ask, how can I celebrate? Human life is subsidized; we shall overcome and pray never to walk through this path again.”
He is currently a United Nations ambassador. Kanayo was honoured by the federal government with the MFR title along with Kenneth Nnebue (producer of Living in Bondage), Olu Jacobs, Enoch Adeboye, Queen Elizabeth and Fela Kuti during the centenary celebration.
