Apollo Crews Explains Why It Was Challenging Him To Do An Accent At First

Apollo Crews did an interview with Comicbook.com to talk about a wide range of topics including his heel turn. 

Crews said it was initially difficult for him to lean into the accent for his ‘Nigerian Royalty’ character. He said,

“I’d say the accent of course, because it’s just something that was so different. People weren’t used to that so I think that for me, and that’s something I used to do as a kid when I was with all my Nigerian friends and my brothers and sisters. It’s so weird because you find other Nigerian-American kids and you just naturally gravitate towards them, because you just have that in common, but I think that is easily the hardest part. People would try to get me to do that accent as a kid and I hated it because I know, ‘Do it again, do it again,’ and I didn’t want to be that. So for me to go and do that in front of millions of people was a huge challenge, but I think life is all about stepping outside that comfort zone and doing those things that you’re uncomfortable with and it ended up being the best thing that I’ve done because 2021 was easily the best year of my career.”
