Actor John Dumelo has come out to inform the approximately three people in the country who believe that unlike other showbiz personalities who made celebrity endorsements and their careers dipped because of those, his career is just fine.
Speaking to Showbiz, Dumelo said rather than his career stalling, the movie industry has slowed – and his career is doing quite fine.
“This year alone, I have done about seven productions and I did two just last month, it hasn’t affected my career in anyway even though I must admit that the film industry has generally slowed down a bit,” he said.
Dumelo went on to say that the local movie industry has to change tack, as the people look like they like comedy much more.

“It looks like these days, a lot of people want comedy. So I think movie makers should look in that direction and produce more comedy.

“ Also, lot of TV stations are going digital so producers should continue selling their movies online and also consider other marketing opportunities like premiering in other countries to make money,” he added.

When asked whether he thought he was rich or successful, John said such metrics are relative from person to person.

“Rich is relative, somebody would say I am rich but I will say I am very comfortable”
