Meet Elvis Alvin, show promoter and skit maker

“Being a show promoter means everything to me, I enjoy my job so this is what makes sir rich,” he adds.

Also, Elvin was inspired by Ehimwenma Maxwell, chief executive officer of Slize Entertainment. “I have him to thank for taking me to the film resort and Nosa Rex. These were my big motivators.

Speaking on some of the notable roles he had featured, Elvis says he has acted in multiple roles. He notes that playing the role of Juda – community CDA personnel in a movie produced by Slize Entertainment titled Ogunmen, was quite challenging.

According to him, the Juda character was more of a rugged and brutal person, as his responsibility was to carry out the deeds of Obas.

“Well, it’s an interesting movie that I continue to watch, even to this day.” “There is so much I can count on, I have appeared in Nollywood movies like Black Cat and I have worked with several actors and actresses in terms of being futures in Mad Neighbors, Wahala Room Service, and Trouble Makers among others,” he says.

Elvin notes that he has also ventured into the real estate industry when he worked as an agent for Reanwa Estate Building, based in Lagos. “In my free time, I do estate research and get clients to buy properties like land and houses, so far from 2022 till now I have sold more than 40 lands and 20 houses.

“So, real estate is still my thing and I have time for it when I am not on set.”
