Do You Remember Actress Biola Ige? See What She Looks Like Now

Biola Ige is a Nigerian actress from Ilesha in Osun State, but was born in a family of five (last child) in Wukari in Taraba State. The actress with the beautiful eyes appeared in her first film called Blindfold. Biola attended Jenkabi Day Care/Prime School in Wukari and Yak Sin Government Day High School in Wukari.

She gave up her Christian faith for Hinduism, which gave her peace in her life, especially when she visited India. Some time ago she almost died because of a malignant growth of her thyroid gland that affected her neck, but she survived after being transported to India for treatment. Some of the movies she has appeared in are Holy City, My Taste, Shakira, My Fantasy and Pregnant Falconers.

She revealed this in an interview;

I have always wanted to be an actress since I was a child. Then I wanted to be in Hollywood movies, because my father was a filmmaker. As a child I had the opportunity to see all the successful films produced in Hollywood with my older brother. My father also supported my dream, but he wanted me to travel to America after my studies.

Unfortunately, when I finished high school, my father was not as rich as he used to be.        He could not send me back to America as he had promised. As a result, there was nothing I could do. As I said before, I fell in love with acting, but I wanted to act in Hollywood. When it didn't work out for lack of money, I moved to Lagos after my college education. I auditioned in Lagos and got my first role in "Blindfold", produced by OJ Productions.

Most people were surprised to find out that she has a 17-year-old adult daughter. I know most of us have missed having her on our screens, i wish she could just do a movie for us once again.

See few of her pictures and that of her daughter;
