In spite of having become a new creature, and a pastor, embracing matrimony and even relocating to Hamburg in Germany, star actor and crooner, Pat Attah, YES INTERNATIONAL! Magazine can authoritatively inform you, still retains the award of Nollywood’s Most Irresistible Dude. In the good old days when he was still in the bachelors’ club, very few people – colleagues and non colleagues – could say no to him. And thus began his long list of dalliances with the likes of Regina Askia, Genevieve Nnaji, Lilian Bach, Alex Lopez, Empress Njamah, Maureen Solomon and Nkiru Sylvanus.
A smooth talker and mesmerizer, it is not usually easy for members of the opposite sex to turn him down. Unfortunately, he rarely spent enough time with any of the ladies before moving on. Currently running Green Hope Productions, Pat, from Awka, Anambra State, and in his late 40s, began his acting career with the role of Ken in the defunct soap, Megafortunes. Lured into taking the role by his friend, Ramsey Nouah, it was while doing that, that he met and fell in love with Regina Askia, a former beauty queen and actress.
Equally in love with music, it was after Regina that the others followed – and when he felt he had enough of the actresses, he quietly tied the knots with a Caucasian and non-actress. At ease with Bob Marley’s songs, the slim and good looking ladies man plays acoustic guitar, used to wear a pony tail and for a long time to come will continue to be remembered for his role as Dennis, the crook who duped the late Jennifer Emeka Ossai in the hit movie, Glamour Girls.
Still being talked about in the industry as the master toaster and blaster, some of his exes still carry and cherish fond memories of their encounter with him – not withstanding that their liaisons were short-lived.
