People usually say I have a thing with switching from pidgin to English without any hitch, I tell them they haven’t heard this madam speak. The Nigerian movie industry took a different turn and she was part of the revolution, she made the screens sell and gave us hope that the industry was going somewhere. She stared blowing our minds in 2008 with the movie “Reloaded”, and moved on to wow us in other block busters like Mr and Mrs, Phone Swap, The Meeting, Devil in detail, Black Gold and many others.
The Akwa Ibom state born Actress started her early life in the north with primary school in Kaduna and Secondary school in Jos and Illorin, her family moved around a lot because of her father’s job with the CBN (all them rich kids, OBO). She got her first degree in creative art from the University of Calabar and started acting on stage at the age of 18.
She was nominated for best actress in leading role at the 5th and 8th Africa Academy Awards for her role in “Reloaded” and “Mr and Mrs” respectively. She has bagged a lot of awards; 2011 best of Nollywood Awards, 2012 Nollywood Movie Awards, 2014 Africa Magic Viewer’s Choice Awards and many other nominations to follow. When I think Nollywood I think Nse, she is on the lips of a lot of Nollywood fans, this week with no doubt at all we crush on Nse Ikpe Etim.
