Osuofia Comes To Ghana

Popular Nigerian comic actor, Osuofia, real named Nkem Owoh, will arrive in Ghana today for his first-ever red carpet event in Ghana.

The actor, much admired in Ghana, became a household name on the continent after his hilarious performance in the movie, ‘Osuofia In London’. He has since commanded enormous followings.

He recently played a role in an upcoming Desamour Company Limited’s movie titled, ‘Ghana Must Go’.  He came face to face with Ghana’s hilarious actor, Kofi Adjorlolo, who is also in the movie.

There is a lot of anticipation to watch the two veteran actors at their best again.

Osuofia will be in town for the movie’s premiere at the Silverbird Cinemas in Accra.

“I am coming to Ghana for the premiere of Ghana Must Go,” he confirmed his coming.

Nkem Owoh is a renowned Nigerian actor and a comedian of great repute. In 2008, he won the African Movie Academy Award for Best Actor In A Leading Role.

Owoh was born in Enugu, Nigeria. After his primary and secondary school, he headed to the University of Ilorin and studied engineering. Already during his university studies, Owoh began acting in various television and film productions.

He starred in the 2003 film, ‘Osuofia In London’. He is also known for performing the song ‘I Go Chop Your Dollar’ about fraud. The song was featured in the film, ‘The Master’ in which Owoh plays a scammer.

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission and the Nigerian Broadcasting Commission banned the song. In 2007, Owoh was arrested in Amsterdam, Netherlands (Bijlmermeer neighbourhood in the Amsterdam Zuidoost borough) as a result of a seventh-month investigation by the Dutch police dubbed ‘Operation Apollo’.

Owoh was arrested while performing a musical show when the police raided the event and arrested 111 people on suspicion of lottery fraud and immigration violations. Owoh was later released. In November 2009, Owoh was kidnapped in eastern Nigeria. His kidnappers demanded a 15 million naira ransom. Owoh was released after his family members allegedly paid a ransom fee of 1.4 million naira.
