Chidi Ihezie: Nollywood Actress Who Has Been Missing On Screen (Photos)

Chidi Ihezie is a Nigerian actress, producer, gospel minister, and entrepreneur. She hails from Imo State.

She graduated from Oko Polytechnic in Anambra State where she studied Mass Communication. Her dream was to be like veteran newscasters Ruth Benemesia Opia and Eugenia Abu which was what inspired her to study Mass Communication. However, a chance encounter with the late Davis Ofor aka Clarus of the rested sitcom The New Masquerade in the late 90s got her interested in acting.

She started her acting career in the late '90s and her first movie was Idejimba. It was subsequently followed by the movie Authority starring alongside Patience Ozokwor and Charles Okafor which shot her to the limelight. However, her breakthrough movie was the Igbo language movie Igbudu starring alongside Nkem Owoh.

Perhaps, her most memorable movie was the 2003 movie Billionaire's Club in which she played alongside Tony Umez, Pete Edochie, Kanayo O. Kanayo, and Clem Ohameze. In the movie, she was sacrificed with her unborn child by her husband played by Tony Umez to the cult and her ghost came to hunt him.

Over the years, she starred in several movies where she mostly played the role of the 'good wife' and 'innocent woman'. At the peak of her career, she suddenly disappeared from the screen. According to her in an interview, she said she took a break from Nollywood when she got married and had to devote her time to her husband and raise a family.

In 2018, the talented actress released a 10 tracker gospel album Limitless Jesus. She said she has given her life to Christ, and she's now an evangelist preaching the gospel to people about the kingdom of God. She now performs in shows and churches.

A few years ago, she graduated from a school in Glasgow, United Kingdom where she went to further her studies. She is still active in Nollywood but not like before, as she now has other engagements, coupled with the fact that she now has a family to cater for.
