BN Bytes: Catching Up with Chika Ike! Nigerian Actress speaks on her Upcoming Movies, Getting Older & Oprah Winfrey

Now, this is one woman who knows how to keep us entertained.

If you pick up the latest Nigerian DVDs today, chances that Nigerian actress, Chika Ike will be on the covers are very high. The 27 year old actress has been entertaining Nigerians in diaspora for well over 8 years by starring in movies including Tear My Bra If You Can, Street President and Unstoppable.

Portraying her characters well is definitely not an issue for the actress and she has an AMAA (Africa Movie Academy Awards) nod to prove it.

So what has the star been up to lately? BN has all the scoop.

She turned a Year Older in November – On Thursday 8th November 2012, the actress and entrepreneur – Chika owns a retail store, Fancy Nancy-  turned 27 years old. To mark another year, the Anambra state indigene decided to celebrate her birthday with a trade fair for her store in Enugu, Fancy Nancy Trade Fair + Chika Ike’s Birthday Bash.

So why the decision to have a birthday party together with her store’s event? Chika tells BN that “Most of my Enugu fans have been asking for Fancy Nancy and I was filming in Enugu, during the (birthday) period, so I am like why not kill two birds with one stone. It was fun”.

She is Not Scared of getting Older – Celebrities like Jane Fonda, Joke Silva and Cameron Diaz have proved that the effects of aging aren’t issues for them, but we can’t say so for women around the world who are scared of getting older. So where does Chika Ike stand on aging as she is now a year older? Lol, she says – showing her fun side – I am not scared of aging because I believe age is nothing but a number.  She further said “I am happy with what I have accomplished so far, I am happy and grateful to see another year”

Is She a “Diva” – Certainly not, but Chika Ike will play one in an upcoming movie she stars in, My Diva. More movies to expect from the actress soon include A Minute Silence, Tears of Ojugo and Maiden Tears. “I just finished a movie called, Ifunanya”, says the star, which will premiere soon in the cinemas.

BN Q&A

If you were asked to play the role of a famous personality, dead or alive, who would it be and why? Oprah. She’s an inspiration to women.

    I FIND IT DIFFICULT TO BELIEVE THAT SOME ARTIST ACTUALLY BELIEVE THEY HAVE WHAT IT TAKES TO DABBLE INTO FASHION AND THEIR INTERVIEW IS NOTHING BUT SUPERFICIAL.THEIR CLAIM TO HAVE BEEN IN LOVE WITH FASHION FROM WAY BACK IS INCREDIBLE! I SOMETIMES WONDER IF THEY REALLY KNOW WAT IT TAKES TO BE TRENDY.I HAVE HEARD/READ ABOUT GENEVIEVE’S FASHION SENSE BUT IT DIDNT MAKE MEANING TIL SHE STARTED DRESSING TO EXPECTATION,SAY LATE 2008,BUT BEFORE THEN IT WAS ANODA,MERCY JOHNSON OR SHUD I SAY INI EDO,YELLOW HAIRCLIPS,YELLOW CHAIN AND PLASTIC BANGLES AND FUNNY DENIM TROUSERS.
    CHIKA ON THE OTHER HAND IN 2012 IS STILL LIVING IN THE PAST OF GENNY AND OMOTOLA DEM,SHE’S VERY VERY IGBO RAZZZ.I DONT MEAN TO BE RUDE BUT I THINK ITS BEST NOT TO COMMENT ON FASHION THAN SAY SOMETHING WHEN YOU DONT ACTUALLY KNOW ANYTHING.

    Chika Ike…”tear my bra” really?

    She has the group she appeals to with her ‘acting’ but I do applaud her for adding a business venture. Hopefully she is knowledgeable about business (pricing, etc) or has those who know around her/working for her.

  • Lovely December 10, 2012 at 6:32 pm

    You may call her razz but guess what she’s actually what u call an actual celeb in naija.. I am not a fan but dats the truth… Look all dem Bryan okwara and uti r not actually celebs becos they are only known among a certain group of people… Most nigerians are poor so not many have access to cinema nd d lyks… They only buy nigerian home videos of which she has close or more tan 30 to her name… She is known within nd outside her circle of celebs.. The common Nigerian knows her name.. This may look “classless” which might be true but this has just increased her celeb status…. So people stop hating… At least wish her a happy b-day

  • Ada December 10, 2012 at 6:58 pm

    I am ashamed to say I didn’t even know her name before this lol…check out my new post and comment guys, I wanna hear your thoughts! http://www.adainprogress.blogspot.com

  • NNENNE December 11, 2012 at 4:33 am

  • Hate self righteous fools March 2, 2013 at 1:10 am

    All u fools talking about razz what’s Ur point? So everyone has to be rich and look like ate butter abi?….some of u fake people talking Ur fathers and mothers live in the village, some didn’t even get an education and cos u now have artists to make u look tush u have the effrontery to call others razz……if u don’t have good comments or constructive criticisms to dish out then zip Ur guts and clear out…..am indifferent to chika Ike but I think she is one smart , young and hardworking lady…keep up the good work girl and God will increase Ur hustle…
