Though the name TONY AKPOSHERI is a household name in Nigeria and beyond, the mention of ZACKY, seems to gel much more with those who witnessed the now rested NTA comedy drama serial right from the 70's (The New Masquerade) where he never stops to thrill the viewers with hilarious moves and later became the Director.

stage way back to the National museum, Onikan after drama school . He formed a group called  Organization For Young Artistes (OYA) way back when Lagos was yet to have a State Cultural Troupe and represented the State in most Cultural Festivals or Competitions in different States of the Federation.  Some years later, together with veteran actor, Zulu Adigwe and Akpor Otebele, formed another theatre group named Batakoto.
