Desmond, who is also a film director, admitted at an event held on Friday that he was no more “doing mainstream acting”.
However, he said he would still consider appearing in few movies in the future.
“In specific movies, yes. It depends on the kind of movies otherwise I leave it to the younger ones,” the actor, who is vying for a political post in 2015 said.
Though Desmond has made it clear he intends to go into politics, he has also said he would leave everything in the hands of God.
“Politics is another field I am venturing into. Governor Fashola and his predeccessor, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu have been truly amazing.
“It is for me to inquire from God, do you really want me to do this?,” he said late last year.
