Nigerians Rising: Meet star of 50 Cent’s hit series, “Power”, Rotimi Akinisho

Rotimi Akinosho is a singer and actor who plays drug dealer “Dre” in 50 Cents executive produced, Starz hit series “Power” (if you are not watching it yet, what are you waiting for ?J ).

The actor who revealed a while back that he was originally considered to play the role of “Hakeem Lyon” in equally successful show “Empire”, but it went to Bryshere “Yazz” Gray instead.

It was down to me, Quincy (Combs) & Yazz actually & then Quincy dropped out and it was down to me & Yazz. At the time they were telling me, “I got it. it’s yours, you’re the guy”. So I start looking for places in Chicago. I was signing on my lease and everything & I was having meetings with networks. It got to the point where I was turning down offers from other shows because I thought I was gonna be on it.

I turned down a couple of things. Like Star wars.

Rotimi is curntly signed to 50 Cent’s Gunit.
