This is a question that has been on the minds of many Nigerians as the super talented nollywood actress who has not graced our screens in recent times, seem to have disappeared!
Many may only know her as a Nollywood actress, but she was a Model before going into acting, she was the second runner up for the Most Beautiful Girl In Nigeria in 2002, and now, a Film director,producer and a script writer.
The actress who graduated from the University of Calabar in English and Literary Studies has stared in a lot of movies which earned her various nominations and awards respectively.
Her first movie as a Movie Director was titled ‘Through The Glass’ done after she graduated from the New York Film Academy in 2007, she has remained persistent and relentless.. She constantly puts Nigeria on the world Map.
The last movie she made before disappearing from our screens, was the movie titled Dry, she doubled as the Screen Writer, Director, Producer and Actress in the movie. It earned her lots of recognition and was well applauded for how the movie turned out. She won the 12th African Movie Academy Awards. She used the movie as an avenue to advocate against Child Marriage and Woman Empowerment.
The 37-years-old actress is happily married to Linus Idahosa and they have a son together. Though,married before, she found love again in Linus.
She’s not on our screens as we would love for her to be but we are on the look at, she’s diffnately not slowing down as her last produced movie, DRY, keeps getting more and more recognition and recently, the movie was translated into Hausa. Not stopping there, she recently started a campaign against Child Marriage and awareness on ‘Fistula’ and ‘Material Health’.
Weldone Stephanie?? We see you!!
Before this recent achievement, she hosted a TV programme called ‘Make Me Fabulous’ which benefited a lot of persons.
But, it seems she’s all about humanitarian service as she keeps pushing in that direction..
We hope to see her star in a movie soon.
