    Dayo is a talented actor. He will surely get an Academy Award (Oscar) someday. It’s just a matter of time and bigger scripts, this movie looks cool though. Dayo is good to go. All the same, we’hv got to be realistic here. Ben Affleck is a terr!ble actor. His awful act!ng almost ru!ned beautiful Argo. Ben is good when it comes to being behind the scenes just like in Argo but acting isn’t for him. Same goes to Justin. Dayo is way better n will surely get to that Super Star status someday.

    One idiot had commented on this same BN that Dayo is a struggling actor, had only been in one movie and didn’t understand why he deserved to grace the cover of some (unkown naija) magazine that was featured. I hope that ‘person’ gets to read this….awon hater oshi!!
