There are many Nollywood actors and actresses who have gone extinct, but here is a legendary figure who has remained ever active in music and acting-ONYEKA ONWENU. Let's discuss her.
Her first movie role was as Jumoke, a childless a woman who adopts an abandoned baby in Zik Zulu's 'Okafor's Nightmare'. Since then her face has been constant over the TV screen. Other movies are; Conspiracy (1999), Government House (2004), Rising Moon (2005), Half of A Yellow Sun, Women's Cot, Muna, Lion Heart etc
She was originally a gospel artiste. Onwenu made the transition to gospel music in the 90's and most of her songs are self-penned. You remember them? Ekwe, Iyokoko, Bia nulu, African Woman, One Love, You and I. Age has caught up with her! See recent photos:￼
Like the saying goes "Nothing is constant but change", the legendary Onyeka Onwenu has undergone some changes. Despite the make up, the smiling face and the amazing physique, we can't overlook the grey on her hairs and the little wrinkles gradually spreading cover her face. But however, she is very active though she is nearly 70!
