We had so much fun bringing you the exclusive shots of ‘Nollywood’s New Look’ featuring E4 PR stars all through last week.
Today, BellaNaija.com presents the final pictorial and it features Nollywood star, Chioma Chukwuka-Akpotha.

Chioma Akpotha has had a long and successful Nollywood career so far. She won the prestigious AMAA award for Best Actress in a Lead Role in 2007. Chioma recently featured in the reality TV show, Gulder Ultimate Search – Celebrity Showdown. Most importantly to her, she is happily married and the proud mother of two beautiful children.
Chioma is a fan favourite and has had a scandal-free run in the limelight.

We absolutely love Chioma’s shoot! Our favourite is the ‘surprise’ shoot! Its great to see Chioma take on a new persona that is so different from her ‘sweetheart’ image! Love it!
You’ll need to scroll down to see what we are talking about.

Hope you enjoyed the series!
BellaNaija.com bring you more special features periodically.

The Surprise Shoot – Chioma’s Motorcycle Diaries
From Egor Efiok of E4 PR – With Chioma Akpotha’s rock chic makeover shoot, I was very worried that it may not come out exactly how I wanted it and the shoot had to be cancelled until  I was sure that everything was in place. The reason I was so particular about Chioma’s shoot was because I wanted the public to see another side to her other than the “angelic/goody two shoes” image that people have of her. Chioma is a very good actress, so it was important for people to see that she can also be sassy. When I was planning Chioma’s look, I said to her “please just allow me roughen you up for a day”, and my oh my did she nail it! Chioma gave the correct attitude and was a proper Ruff Rider/Ride Or Die Chick during the shoot. I could not believe how good she was and was so impressed. The guy that brought the bike and other bikers, Davies Bassey, was also a pro. He helped direct the shoot and even helped Princess finish off Chioma’s tattoo. You know, Princess is an artist as well as a make-up artist, so fancy meeting another artist that turned out to be one of the bikers! It was really awesome.

  9. Sophie

    July 19, 2010 at 12:07 pm

    Pic 1, 3, 4 absolutely sucks, they are so unpretty and unrelaxed but somehow the suprise shot scored an A, she looks way better and pretty in them. I love the one she was on the bike alone riding, so stunning!

  10. Boobsy Doo

    July 19, 2010 at 12:11 pm

    @adenike…u r so observative to a fault……lol @ the shoe size.

    nice shot….

    cant believe she is a mother of two….
    when some ladies without a child go about with bulging tummy.

    A biker chick after my own heart………….minus dem fish nets though.
    Chioma looks good on a normal day and most of these pictures do her justice.
    Great job E4 PR!

    Pix 2: Shoe looks ‘tired n tested’ (over worn) and too tight.
    Pix 12: what is with the ‘extras’ in the back backgoround, should have been
    blurred out totally….? The rest are fine.

    PS: What are these girls up2 lately, the movie industry is so down turn right now,
    except for the yoruba genre? How are they paying their bills, most of them
    don’t have a 9-5? Just Wondering…

    Love her bike pics, she is so fiesty and beautiful

  18. Ibo Omoge

    July 19, 2010 at 1:22 pm

    @ Adenike…If you’ve seen real biker girls before you would know that fishnet stockings are a major staple in their dressing (especially when they wear shorts). When they dress I don’t think their goal is to look like they just came off the runway. Most of what they put on doesn’t make sense and that’s the idea. They did very good job in showing the qualities of a biker girl.

    Anyway moving on…I like picture 1… Chioma has a very nice butt (no homo). I need to start doing my squats.

  19. mariaah

    July 19, 2010 at 1:23 pm

    Chioma is so hot!!want to b like her when I grow up and after my 2 kids..
    Nice job E4 PR, like the way you guys work…

  23. Hellish

    July 19, 2010 at 2:17 pm

    the biker chick pictures are good i cant even hate.
    even tho its a borrowed foreign concept, she makes it work somehow.
    make up is fab and she’s oozing with attitude.
    Egor tried with getting the props. i wonder what it cost to do the shoots and who foots the bill. its also amazing Egor was able to direct these shoots from London. i wonder how she managed that.

    well done.

  29. siena

    July 19, 2010 at 3:58 pm

    average

  30. Tee

    July 19, 2010 at 4:02 pm

    Eeerr, a bit razzz! Make up is kind of dramatic, eye brows are dramatic. Picture 6 is manageable. her feet in picture 3 isnt bunnnzz at all, looks like she squeezed into the shoes.

  31. teeno

    July 19, 2010 at 4:24 pm

    chioma, chioma, chioma…..luvd other shots apart frm the bike stunts.wd hav preferred rita dominic for that axis!

  32. patkizzy

    July 19, 2010 at 5:10 pm

    Nice 1 madam chioma….i luv d biking aspect of ur pix…

  33. adenike

    July 19, 2010 at 5:24 pm

    @ibo omoge; since you already said “most of what they put on do not make sense”,well i then rest my case!

  34. THE AMAKA

    July 19, 2010 at 5:41 pm

    something about the badass biker stuff is really likeable. love those shots.
    and for me, Chioma is someone that looks better in traditional wear. She rocked the traditional outfit picture the best, even in the shot of all 3 of them.
    The regular pictures, not so much, but i LOVE the traditional one.
    that style really does suit her.

  35. THE AMAKA

    July 19, 2010 at 5:48 pm

    btw….the third shot was just bad. the angle was wrong.
    and a couple of the bikers are FLY! haha

  36. THE AMAKA

    July 19, 2010 at 5:55 pm

    hahaha, one more thing.
    I prefer the makeup she is wearing in picture 6 to the green eyeshadow. its more natural and looks and doesnt look so fake.
    the green eyeshadow, not really working for moi.

  37. heyr

    July 19, 2010 at 6:17 pm

    @ Boobsy Doo: Observative ke??? more like observant :p
    love the biker pixes, tho would have preferred if the clothes had a distressed look …. her wardrobe looks v new and clean …. doesnt ring true with biker chic wardrobe

    eyebrows fantastic, dont think they r dramatic, as they r in tune with her brow bone

  38. Jasmine

    July 19, 2010 at 6:19 pm

    Chioma looks razz jor! She wan really belong by force? Babe, no be by force na? Stick to your good girl image fit you abeg!…d peace sign na die! lol…

  39. konnie

    July 19, 2010 at 7:22 pm

    fun pictures. i enjoyed the series

  40. Loli

    July 19, 2010 at 7:31 pm

    Um…she’s really pretty but i’m confused on the “biker chick” concept… Its not really
    working for her. She look like she’s about beat someone up–even some of the
    beauty shots she looks really mean; she’s doing too much–not cute at all.

  41. Kiki

    July 19, 2010 at 7:41 pm

    Now the biker pics shows the Chioma I know back in High school… I really like how they showed her in another light, that what makes a good actress….

  42. wendu

    July 19, 2010 at 8:31 pm

    picture six remains my best but of all the photoshot I prefer susan and monalisa’s

  43. teablinks

    July 19, 2010 at 8:49 pm

    Hooooo la la…. sweet!!!!!

  44. EMPACO

    July 19, 2010 at 8:58 pm

    nice pic of sumone so special.

    E4 PR did a good job… The PR outfit will make a lot of money for the next five years.

  46. Jade

    July 19, 2010 at 10:06 pm

    Your pics are great, and as we Jamaican will say
    MADDD, SELL OFF!! Keep doing what you doing and
    loving what you doing. You dont have to be perfect, just aim
    to perfect what you’ve got. Keep shining Chioma.
    Nuff Love all the way!!!

  47. jeny

    July 19, 2010 at 10:22 pm

    lol…she looks like mama gee in the last biker shot, but great concept though!

  48. Jade

    July 19, 2010 at 10:41 pm

    i was very glad they took Chioma from the angelic era to one who takes charge and is sassy. Let the world know that u have got it like that. You can be conformed into a new look without being transformed in itself. How great is it to see diversity. To the photographers and all that helped in the shooting of thepics, thumbs up, absolutely great job!!!

  49. Jade

    July 19, 2010 at 10:43 pm

    and as a biker chick myself, GIVE IT TO DEM!!!

  50. asa

    July 19, 2010 at 10:45 pm

    Love love the shoot,well done E4 PR,Chioma is totally rocking this biker shoot theme ,good girl gone bad, love it,d look suits her.

  51. Myne Whitman

    July 19, 2010 at 11:27 pm

    Great concept for the biker chic. She looks great in all.

  52. Mo

    July 19, 2010 at 11:51 pm

    worrrk it chioma… love it alll! she’s one of my fav actresses

  53. Dan

    July 20, 2010 at 12:45 am

    Whoever handled the retouching for the pics should have enhanced the general look of the picture by increasing the size her boobs in pic no 2. Electric poles in the background is a no-no. Pic no 6 has got hotspots on her chest and the shoulder on the right hand side of the pic has lost detail.

  54. Omada

    July 20, 2010 at 1:27 am

    Chioma is looking baddd!!!! or rather hot!!! i love this side of her!
    the 11th picture is my favourite! I also love the pix where she’s sitting on the fence!
    she looks like an area mama, esp. with dose guys behind her! love it!

    @ Dan, what is wrong with the the electric poles?

  55. Omada

    July 20, 2010 at 1:29 am

    the pictures were taken on a street in Lagos and electric poles come with the territory…

    Whoa, Chichi babay, lol!

  57. ahunna

    July 20, 2010 at 3:26 am

    Hot but she still looks timid though. Rita or genevieve, even omotola would have done WOW in the biker shots!

  58. Babes

    July 20, 2010 at 4:08 am

  65. RMG

    July 20, 2010 at 2:35 pm

    Too beautiful in picture 6.that was a knock-out shot.overall,i prefer the “regular” Chioma to the “bad girl”,but they’re all great.kudos to the make-up artist,you brought out her beauty.

  66. myopinionishonest

    July 20, 2010 at 5:55 pm

    LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  67. mabel

    July 20, 2010 at 8:43 pm

    i totally prefer monalisa’s and susan’s to chioma’s.
    Good try but not good enough.
    i totally hate the bikers shoot. it aint sassy at all.
    i agree with adenike the shoes lookd ‘oversize’
    a nice not too heely knee length boots would hv done better
    and a bit of black push up corset xposing a lil cleavage to ooze sexiness
    and wild cat black made up eye and black lips wld hv given her the sexy mistery biker ladies look
    nice try though E4PR u r doing sm better makeover than what they all used to be.

  68. myopinionishonest

    July 20, 2010 at 9:07 pm

    LOL!!!! Ok. Now I can talk. Her neck is lost in majority of the pics. SHe has the same look on her face in all the biker shots. Could the stylist Yolande not come up with other biker or rocker chick inspired looks. sigh… naija. we have a long way to go sha

  69. kamasutra

    July 20, 2010 at 11:46 pm

    all i would write is…SHE WAS TRYING TOO DAMN HARD.

  70. agatha

    July 22, 2010 at 7:00 am

    infact,u r a beauty.

  71. zara

    July 22, 2010 at 7:05 pm

    Hmmm am not impressed, this are mediocre pictures, its not by force to belong, Chioma needs to be here herself and leave all this raz stuff. I mean look at picture number 3, why is she wearing an undersized shoe??

  72. Mma

    July 23, 2010 at 5:09 am

    Egor, Amayo & d crew I say kudos… Chioma pweety, sumtin out of d ordinary kip it up.

  73. Yaw

    July 23, 2010 at 9:58 pm

    Wow! She looks ravishing….

  74. Jojo

    July 25, 2010 at 10:14 am

    @ adenike, I totally agree with u. I wasn’t really feeling the fishnet. Infact d all biker chic thingy. But really nice pictures. Very creative nd kudos to chioma, she still looks hot nd sassy. Nice!!!

  75. okey

    July 25, 2010 at 3:57 pm

    that is the beginning of the end for her….i like her a lot because of the kind of roles she plays..but with this, i am pretty sure that the next thing will be for her to pack out of her husbands home and start acting weird. Please advise her to remain the way she is. We like her as such. Thanks

  76. Chamcham

    July 26, 2010 at 3:51 am

    She looks like her neck disappeared in almost all the pics. Lovely face but she is no model. And she is trying too hard

  77. Augustina

    July 26, 2010 at 10:18 am

    Nice pix, i love them all. can’t believe she is a mother of 2. Chioma ur extremely beautiful. Luv u

  78. Augustina

    July 26, 2010 at 10:30 am

    But then, i will also advise u remain a virtues woman dat u hv always been
    and build ur home wit ur husband.u hv a nice pix over there but dats not the best u can do. u can do better than dat by covering ur precious body for lovin and God given husband of urs. By doing dis u will be able to save ur marriage from disaster.thanks Sis always luv u.

  79. joseph

    July 26, 2010 at 1:13 pm

    This is to okey. Its a shame pple still think the way u do!!! So because chioma did a photo shoot on a bike,its now d beginning of the so called ‘end’? Haba? What’s d extra ordinary thing she has done now? What kind of mentality do u have? She still looks descent with those biker shots and she hasn’t exposed nothing!
    Inshort I don’t have nothing to say to u but that u have a wicked heart to think that of her and to think u said u like her and her movies….smh! Pls get a life! If u really like as u claim, u’d always wish her well.

  85. Favy

    July 30, 2010 at 12:16 am

    I love her whether as an angelic or sassy Girl. She is cute, you guys really tried. Kudos

  86. silva

    July 30, 2010 at 12:47 am

    @ okey, augustina & esther, you guys suck!!!
    so bcos she took pictures on a bike, it will end her marriage?
    how do know if her husband won’t like it?
    its bcos of archaic people like dis that we are so backward in this country.
    a man is allowed to do whateva he wants, but if a woman wears a knee length skirt we start talking rubbish..

    get a life!

    August 3, 2010 at 3:39 pm

    You look fabulous, Chioma, my favorite actress! For those of you don’t seem to understand that acting a role, or taking a photo, is not the same as changing one’s personality, please grow up.

  91. Vicky

    August 9, 2010 at 8:08 pm

    woooooow she look fresh, I like her style
