Delectable Oge Okoye is one of the very few young rising figures in the Nigerian movie culture who got it right. Barely five years old in Nollywood, Oge has proven that her choice of acting as a career from childhood was not misplaced.
What has kept her shinning on the acting runway has been her unwavering determination to reach the top rung. Indeed today, her dazzling takes have singled her out amongst her contemporaries-'new acting kids on the block'.

Current industry ratings place her as one of the most sought after actresses in the Nigerian home movie sector. Recent statistics from Idumota, the seat of the popular movie market in Lagos confirmed that Oge appears the busiest now, of the youthful screen actress. Her face is most likely to grace the cover jacket of six out of say ten movies released in the Nigerian movie culture in a month. Indeed Oge seems the new pearl of most of the sector's producers.

Oge was born in London to the Late Mazi Okoye and Lolo Okoye, both devout Anglicans. It was from them that Oge imbibed the virtues of honesty, sincerity, courage and fear of God. A native of Nnewi in Anambra State, Oge, who was born under the star sign Scorpio, had her early education partly in London, at the University Primary School Enugu and at the Holy Rosary College, Enugu. In school Oge was engaged in a number of theatrical activities, which got quite a number of people, including her teachers, convinced that she was cut out for a career in entertainment.
After her primary and post primary education, Oge gained admission into the Nnamdi Azikiwe University Akwa, Anambra State where she graduated four years later with a degree in Theatre Arts. It was during Oge's first year in the University at Akwa that the inspiration to become a 'big time actress' heightened. She felt that it wouldn't be out of place to try her hands on her long held passion.

Nigerian home video lovers who claim ignorance of the distinctive face and looks of Nigerian's most popular actor, Saint Obi, must be a strange lot. Saint Obi's ascension into the highly important first place he occupies in the heart of his many fans is almost magical.
Born in Mbaitoli, Imo state "those-not-so-many years ago" (he won't tell you exactly how old he is) is Nigeria's screen god. The 1991 graduate of Theatre Arts from the University of Jos did not go into acting immediately after graduation.

Instead, his handsome face, wonderful mien and great body quickly got him modelling jobs. He was a model for a few years before he decided to try his hands at the profession which he has spent some four years (sons strikes, riots, etc) studying.

Although he has been in quite a few stage plays, Saint Obi did not hit the national limelight until he debuted in the widely acclaimed home video, Without Love. From then on, producers and directors have continued to scramble for the model/actor who claims marriage is still quite far from being his immediate concern right now.

To date, he has starred in most of the films that are considered the most popular in Nigeria. Sakobi, Goodbye Tomorrow, Heart of Gold, Amadas, Last Party, are a few of the films in which he has acted

Saint Obi continues to model.
Not too long ago, he won a highly lucrative contract to model for Bevista, one of Nigeria's few highbrow boutiques. Right now, speculation is rife that Bevista might renew his one year contract given the huge marketing success Saint Obi has become for the boutique, a success which has translated into huge sales for the clothiers of past Nigerian presidents.
Saint Obi continues to ride high as one of Nigeria's better paid actors. How much he grosses per film, he won't tell you.
His high status and stature in the industry is of course enough proof that he is making a neat pile of money. Stardom and relative wealth have however left this handsome dude as simple as they met him.
For the star whose parents were once opposed to his opting for acting instead of the many other more lucrative professions, he has carved a solid niche for himself and none can begrudge him enjoying his well deserved success.

Caroline Uduak Abasi Ekanem is a princess from the royal family of Ekanem in Eket, Cross River State. She went into acting not only for the fame and glamour, but to use her talent to impact on her society. Born to a British father and a Nigerian mother, Caroline is from a God-fearing and disciplined family. This undergraduate of the University of Calabar loves singing, but has acting as her first love.

Since she cut her teeth in acting, when she featured in Chico Ejiro’s Deadly Kiss, she has never looked back.

Though blessed with ravishing beauty, Caroline is not one of those Nollywood actresses who allows the glamour of screen acting to get into their heads. She told Daily Sun that she would rather die in penury than bare it all before the camera.
In this interview, Caroline speaks on her life, career and why parental influence would not make her do anything untoward as an actress.

There is cute, there is pretty, there is hot and there is beautiful. Kate Henshaw-Nuttal falls in the beautiful bracket. Her lips, her eyes, her hair, her body, compliment her pretty natural face which takes on a healthy chocolate hue.

Kate, has been through a lot, and has come out gold. Married to a Britton – Roderic James Nuttal, she admits it – actresses are asked for sex to get roles, said she, “It does happen.” Has it happened to her? “Never. Not at all. A few girls have walked up to me,” telling her they’ve been asked for sex. But Kate would counsel from a feminine point of view: “Say no! Believe in yourself. Believe in your confidence. No matter how long it takes do not sell yourself short. Because once you do that, that is what they will tie you down with.” The girls took to the advice, refused sex and according to Kate, but too bad (if that is the word) “they didn’t get the role.”
A voice should go forth
The fight for the position of the National PRO of AGN is going to be a kill or cure, you are either successful or not. This actress who “shot my first film (The Sun Sets), 1993 and it was released 1994” says if she becomes PRO, “I want to work with people who have the same vision like myself and the rest of the people that’ll be in the cabinet.” She has never done politics before but the former student of Federal Government Girls College, Calabar “where I was Social Prefect,” said, she used her sociable qualities against other contenders. “I’m a people person,” says Kate a graduate of “Medical Microbiology at the school of Medical Laboratory Sciences, Lagos University Teaching Hospital, LUTH

Her appearance in the television serial, Fortunes, in 1993 changed the course of her life. The TV soap brought her fame and fortune. At about the time of her spectacular rise to stardom, the Home Video as a medium of entertainment had become popular. Coming to movie prominence with Glamour Girls in 1994, Liz Benson has appeared in so many home videos that her face is better known than that of any other actress. Some of the movies where she played the leading role include True Confessions, Shame, Yesterday, Evil Men 1 and 2, Trial, Pureman, Scores to Settle, Izaga, Chain Reaction, Sunset in Africa, Stolen Child, Burden and many more.

A resolute and courageous lady, Liz lost her husband when she was in her mid-20 and unlike some women whose world would crash after the demise of their husband, she has faced life struggles and successfully raised the three children all alone as a single mother. She has
made a huge name for herself in acting. In this revealing interview, which took place at the Kensington Hilton Hotel in Holland Park, West London, Liz Benson bares it all,from her life as an actress, a widower at a tender age, her children, her acting career, to the rumours about her true age.

Re: Some Nigeria Movie Stars Profile by Stanozcom(m): 12:55am On Oct 12, 2007

You're brief.
I understand.

You are in AbiaPoly. Hmm, I also studied the same course you are studying, and in the very same institution.
I shall help you.

Buy their movies. Hook up with the marketers via phone or and email. Then hook up with their agent(s). Then you're home free.

However I can assure you that if you don't have something smart/positive/productive to tell this Enugu-duo; you're wasting your time.

(Say Hi to the present H.O.D for me; Mrs. Ndukwe, and tell Mr. Chike David that I'll come and see him immediately I get to Aba (hopefully that'll be on Monday!) )

Seems U all  have forgotten about Genevieve shes the best any time any day.
Re: Some Nigeria Movie Stars Profile by katchy(f): 10:34pm On Oct 22, 2007
every bodu knows that GENEVIEVE is the QUEEN OF NOLLYWOOD. SHE bees tha block
Re: Some Nigeria Movie Stars Profile by yongbabe(f): 12:29pm On Oct 23, 2007

She is the stuff of which legends are made. A strong woman who, against all odds rose to become a dazzling success that fiction loving individuals get to read about in Jackie Collins or Barbara Taylor- Bradford novels. But her story is for real. Genevieve Nnaji is undoubtedly, Nollywood's most dazzling diamond yet.

Nollywood, the pet name for the Nigerian motion picture industry, has captured global fascination and is touted as being the third largest movie producing country after America's Hollywood and India's Bollywood, respectively. Nollywood has more fans outside, spread across Africa and other parts of the world than in Nigeria itself. It is in this buoyant industry that a home video is hardly produced without Nnaji on the cast list. She has acted major roles in nearly 200 home videos. Her earnings from a home movie is reportedly in six digits. She lives in the posh Ajah district in Lagos. And she moves about in the latest sleek cars. She has become not just a star but, a super star.

Her status received the mega star title when in addition to acting she released a musical album. Titled Hot Stuff, the album was first released in Ghana before its subsequent release in Sierra Leone. Her first musical performance in Sierra Leone took place at Old School Entertainment Complex at Abereen, west of the capital Freetown, on May 6 and at the National Stadium Lagos on May 7. She appeared at the event alongside Mohamed Kallon, Sierra Leonean international striker. Kallon remarked that Genevieve's album is a delightful blend of Afro beat and western lyrics. At the initial launch of the album in Ghana, different groups jostled for hosting the show with some of them offering 12,000 dollars for it.

Her super stardom was consolidated recently. Unilever, the international conglomerate, recently appointed her as the new face of Lux, a toilet soap. Her appearance in the television advertisement confirmed her star status; she was the star any young girl would aspire to be. Apart from the television advertisements, she also featured in the billboards advertisements.

Popularly called 'Genny' by her friends, Nnaji was born in 1979 to an engineer father and a mother who was a teacher. She attended Girls Secondary School Akwakuma, Owerri, Imo State. It was while in secondary school that she exhibited her artistic bent. Contrary to earlier protestations, she refused to forgo her fantasy of becoming a film star.

In order to actualise her dreams and not just fantasise about it, she left for Lagos. Initially, the roles were not forthcoming. But, she started with minor roles in Palace and Broad Street, two television soap operas. This opened the door for roles in Nollywood productions like Most Wanted, Agony, The Only Nigerian Girl, Camouflage, Fire Dancer, Mark of the Beast and so on. From her scintillating performance in these movies, her rating and popularity soared. She has been hailed as Nigerian Halle Berry and Africa's Janet Jackson.

Fans are already gearing up to witness her transition to Hollywood. Her innocent natural looks, petite figure and charisma in addition to her ability to let characters come to her easily brand her as Hollywood stuff! However, Nnaji is lukewarm about that. "Of course, it's not easy climbing up the ladder in Hollywood … Will I be able to cope with their professional standards? Will I be able to cope with the beauty rave and madness of Hollywood? Will I do my nose, do my chin, have breasts implant or enlarge my lips? Hmmm, questions that need answers!," she said. Completely assured of her abilities, she rather thought it is Hollywood that should be priming itself for her. She said, "the GOD I serve does not sleep, if He wills it, I will go to Hollywood and if He lets me get there, it's to make an African statement with my African-ness. The question should be "IS HOLLYWOOD READY FOR GENEVIEVE?"

Her characteristic bluntness on issues makes her unpopular with some people who mistake it for arrogance. But she takes such comments in her stride.

Rather, she takes solace in youngsters looking up to her. Her story gives many aspiring youngsters out there a chance to believe that they can also become what they want to become. It is no surprise she has got a lot of youngsters considering a career in the movies. She personifies everything they want to achieve in the movie business; she is beautiful, she is talented, she is famous and shooting upward every minute like the proverbial northern star. Everyone dreams of shinig like a star. The star today is Genevieve Nnaji.
