Multi-talented Uche Jombo makes production debut with star-studded ‘Nollywood Hustler’



She’s known as an actress but Uche Jombo has many titles to her name – she is a mathematician/statistician, actress, screenwriter and now you can add producer to that list! Uche is making her production debut with the movie – Nollywood Hustler which she also stars in. The movie is co-produced by ‘Games Men Play’ producer Emem Isong and directed by Moses Inwang.
Nollywood Hustler takes a comedic look at Nollywood; the real stars and the wannabes. This star-studded movie stars Ramsey Nouah, Monalisa Chinda and Lancelot Imasuen acting as fictionalized versions of themselves. Charles Inojie stars as the wannabe producer and Uche Jombo as the wannabe actress. With the supporting cast including talented actors Ejike Asiegbu, Susan Peters and Bishop Ime.
Below are photos from the set of the movie including a scene from the movie which recreates a red carpet event tagged ‘Celebrities Give Back’ with real celebrities walking down the carpet as themselves and talking about their projects and the act of giving back. These celebs included Genevieve Nnaji, Ini Edo-Ehiagwina, Ngozi Ezeonu, Kalu Ikeagwu, Muma Gee, Zik Zulu Okafor, Vivian Ejike, musical duo Bracket, Kevin Luciano of Questionmark Entertainment, rapper Sasha and Julie of WOW magazine.

    Love Sasha’s dress (she used to have a clothing line for years abi?)

    Muma gee has been dressing ‘better’ lately, she used to be too avant garde back in the day.

    I love me some Uche Jombo! She is very articulate, talented and good natured. Uche Iwuji is losing some weight, good for her. Ini Edo always looking like a drag queen, Love Genevieve’s dress, Ramsey always drop dead gorgeous, Ngozi Ezeonu the true lcon. Love them all.

    September 12, 2009 at 10:14 pm

    Seriously though this bella is turning into E! b4 we say jack-robison she will soon have her own cable channel. Na like this people dey start. Is it just me or does Monalisa and Ramsey look hawt together…let no one pull a brangelina on us-o!

    The bracket boys are shinning-o. Yeah money is good! especially the yellow one. I like the concept of this film and I can’t help but think why didn’t I think of that first. Oh well its already gone now…(sighs). I like derele’s style, dunno why but its cool!

    Do we do autugraphs in Nigeria…I hope I dont get insulted for this thought. Just wondering aloud cos I remember that I’ never asked for one but rather a pic with d person.

    this ini edo girl is just becoming more irritating by the day.cant believe some people think she’s fine.and can someone beg genevieve to slow down on the slimming down thing or whatever it is she’s doing thats making her thin.she’s beginning to look 30yrs older than her real age

  33. tomilola

    September 15, 2009 at 10:07 pm

    OMG! why is sasha looking like a scared chicken in that picture…?

    Oh pls get over yourselves women!

    Genevieve looks fab in her frame and does not look a day over 27. She is a movie star and that’s what movie stars should look like. TV puts at least 10pounds on you so no need to put it on yourself. I’m surprised you would even use the term skinny rather than slim considering her arms are still full.
    I guess you’ll have some peace of mind when she fails at something right? Sorry, keeping fit and staying trim isn’t the one. Get used to it.

    People should stop writing disrespectful comments about Nollywood actors and actresses, if you are not going to put positive comments then dont write any comments.
    Nollywood actors and actresses are wonderful!!.

    October 22, 2009 at 12:54 pm

    you want to work in a white man’s country, yet a white man cnt work in yours……I wonder why people are complaining about the cameraman…

    I would like to see you in person as ur full time occupation here is to pass silly, dumb judgement on people. What has Ini Edo done to you..bad belle?..she’s is a star for all you know. Allow her do her thing..she deserves to be cheered and adored. It’s not easy. she earned it. As for your comment about genevieve, not all african women break loose into fat domies, simply because they’re comfortable in life. Genevieve is fully an entertainer and so has to look apealing to the public..It comes with the profession. She looks perfectly ok.she started watching her wieght on time which is excellent. atleast she doesn’t have to spend thousands of dollars to get in back in shape spontaneously if she looses herself; tommy tuck and all of that in future to look apealing in public. That’s what most celebrities do.
