We are not being corny by choosing Enyinna as our #MCM because of the premiere of “The Wedding Party 2”. Nollywood Actor, Enyinna Nwigwe just won our hearts in The Wedding Party where he played Nonso Onwuka and we’ve had our eyes on him since then. Now The Wedding Party 2 is out and he plays the lead role, he just got even hotter.
Enyinna Nwigwe has worked alongside some of the most respected producers and directors in Africa and overseas. He is originally from Imo State, Nigeria. Andy/Yina (as friends like to call him) is the son of retired public servants and the last of four children. He graduated with a degree in Economics from the University of Calabar, Nigeria. It was in the university Enyinna began his career in the arts and entertainment as a runway model and transcended to the sought after print advertising model. He made his first acting debut in “Wheel of Change” (2004) directed by well-esteemed filmmaker Jeta Amata and from then on his career took off.
Here are 4 facts you probably did not know about him:
- He says he speaks better Igbo than English: “I probably speak better Igbo than I do English” he said.
- He works out a lot – well that’s pretty obvious, “I’m a very physically active person. I play tennis. I run the stairs. I go to the Gym. It’s so bad that it is beginning to affect my knees and joints and I still go as hard”.
- His favorite color is Blue, “I like every shade of Blue”.
- He is a very playful person, “I play a lot. I’m very playful, but a lot of people think otherwise. People find me very serious, intense and snobbish. Little do they know until they come close”.
On that note, have you seen him in #TheWeddingParty2
