CityPeople Celebrates Nollywood UK Actor/Producer, Tony. T. Thompson


Tony Thompson is an accomplished Movie Practitioner who is doing well in the UK. Recently, he spoke to CityPeople about his success story. Below are excerpts.



Please introduce yourself and tell us what you do...

My name is Tony T Thompson (Aka: Mr. T). I am an Actor/ Producer and Owner of Teejam Media & Entertainment Ltd. Based in Nigeria & UK. a Film, Music and Sports company. We deal with Film, Music Label/Management, and sport representation services.


Our recent film is entitled: “Divorced” produced by Princess Titi Thomas and www.Teejammediaproductions.com

 We manage a string of artists ie AfrokingTYC, Olusho, DAZ (A jamaican) to name but a few: www.teejamrecords.com


I am also the first & current Tampan Uk chapter Director of planning & business. I am also President of Talented stars Film Empire also headed by my other able leader, Ayanfe Adeleke (TSFA Nigeria) also under Tampan Nigeria. I am also a member of the Actors Guild UK Nollywood (AGUKN). I was also featured in the Actors guide directory 2016 UK (Valentino Media).


I have always been a creative individual. So, once I graduated, it made sense for me to go into the field. I've brought my unique style to some brilliant film projects.


I have a particular interest in Films/ features, Presenting work, commercials, shorts, Documentaries, Radio and anything in between such as writing.


How easy or challenging has it been sustaining your interest in your movie career?

It's been hard as my film journey started in the UK. I  studied Communication & Audiovisual production studies (BA Hons) but started out first as a runner, script writer & film extra..no one would give you much of a chance until you put the work in. I have been on some UK films such as holby city, lucky man, the planet of the Apes (sequel), etc "check my site" but started in Nollywood around 2012 in the UK. I combined my acting/ production career, with being a journalist, A&R for a known independent record label, being a radio presenter, football scout & more following interview opportunities in Nigeria at Cool Fm, Silverbird & by the late Chaz B who was starting out his media house during which time I temporarily relocated after I accepted his invitation alongside owners of Jobberman.

 I was also one of the faces of "Verve Interswitch" on National TV Nigeria (You can find them on your bank cards). I am also known as a Voiceover addict. I can do britico, Broken, Jamo accents anyday, lol.


Tell us a bit about your growing up years and schools attended...

Tony T Thompson as he is known in the industry is also a direct descendant of the Disu OLUBAJO Clan who is one of the 7 ruling houses of "THE OGU'JA OLU-ISA (OLISA) OF IJEBU-ODE" kingmakers of which the Awujale is current.

They are stipped in history of which he is ultimately proud of but remains a humble helpful person as he is naturally shy. He also once lived with the current Oba of Ikorodu in London unknown to him at the time. Born in the UK I was taken to Nigeria at a young age.

I attended EBIRE & International School UI, where my mum taught before returning to the UK at a formative age where I completed the rest of my studies & more.

 I have been very fortunate so far & thank God for all things thus far. We are still growing.  Lol.  You can find me on my handles. IG: @Tony_T_Thompson;     FB:@TonytThompson.
