Uru Eke Nominated for Bono Awards

Though not necessarily a household name amongst a few movie audiences, Ms Uru Eke has been in nollywood movies for a few years now and definately a star in rising and thus to watch out for.

The first time i notice Uru and her talent was about 4 yrs ago in a movie called "WIDOWS MEN" starring Pete Edochie and Jim Iyke. I just fell in love with her acting and knew instantly she is bound to be a star - she got the complete IT factor and the camera loves her so. We became friends and communicated a few times (and still do) and now I call her a friend. Uru is such a sweet friendly person with such an undeniable subtle graceful beauty and aura about her - you just gotta love her!. Like me, she also grew up in London and still resides there and works an IT professioinal in central London, but whenever times permits and she gets a good selective script she is interested in she flies back home to Nigeria to shoot movies - you could call her bi-coastal.

Amongst few other rising talents, Uru has recently been nominated for in Bono Awards as "MOST PROMISING TALENTED FEMALE" - and that i agree, she is. The BON (Best of Nollywood) Awards, celebrates the accomplishments of Nigeria's actors and filmmakers.




Rest assured you will be seeing more of Uru in the coming months/years. She has already a few good movie lined up fo release including an Emem Isong blockbuster production. Uru has "excellent" on screen chemistry with Jim Iyke as she did in WIDOWS MEN, and i have a few other fellas in mind i would love to see her paired up with for future projects. Watch this space for updates as well as my long overdue one on one interview with her.


Check out some of the clips for Uru's past movies. Enjoy and dont forget to vote for Uru.
