Which 90s Nigerian TV & Film Star still looks AMAZING? See “Checkmate” Star Ego Boyo Now!



Ego Boyo
Remember Ann Haastrup from Checkmate?
Her character on the popular TV show is one of most popular lead characters to ever grace Nigerian TV! She followed up with her role in the hit movie Violated which she also co-produced.
When she started her TV career, she was Ego Nnamani, today she’s Ego Boyo, a successful entrepreneur – the CEO of Temple Productions, a mum and wife of Mofe Boyo. Though she keeps a relatively low profile, it’s always a joy to see her.

Check out the shots above of Ego from a recent makeover by Kemi Kings Beauty and an interview with Enterprise Creative below.

    Your caption “Which 90s Nigerian TV & Film Star still looks amazing…”sounded like you wanted to parade an array of stars to choose from, only to see Ego Boyo alone. Am a fan of hers .

      Abi o, my sister. Very confusing headline. ‘Which’ implies a choice to be made from an array of choices.

    The noise in the background was very distracting, I really couldn’t concentrate on what she was saying…I loved Checkmate, although I was very young then and don’t quite remember her that much, I still have a nagging feeling that she was amazing…Still is…

    Gosh, i love this lady. I know someone, who has met her and said she is extremely nice and humble, which just makes me love her even more. She just gets better, hotter and sweeter with age (no homo intended). Ego Boyo, please when are you going to grace our screens again. We miss the likes of you in nollywood. #legend,#gracedandbeautiful,#rolemodel.

    It was “Ann Haatrup” not “Haastrup”

      August 14, 2013 at 11:56 am

      Do you know, I called that character “Ann Haastrup” for the longest time and I don’t even know where the “s” in it originated from. Just about everyone I knew pronounced it the same way… Nigerians, we can sha like to spoil people’s names.

      Kemi Kings, take a bow. Your makeup skills remain on pizzle. And Ego looks as graceful as she ever did.

    • Tola

      August 14, 2013 at 1:51 pm

      Are you ok?? How can you have issues with the correction?? Because of her, a lot of people like myself have realized the correct spelling and pronunciation and you are going on about it?? You must have a lot of issues, and must hate correction and constructive criticism.

    Love Ego Boyo! She just exudes effortless elegance and class – right from her checkmate days. Her character (Ann Haatrup – which until now I also thought was Haastrup) was like my standard – beautiful career woman making things happen in the corporate world. But wait o, is this name HaaTrup or HaaTHrup… I’ve just confused myself now 🙁

    You know what would be great? Checkmate – the movie, with RMD, Ego Nnamani-boyo, bimbo Manuel , bob Manuel udokwu, kunle bamtefa, Antar laniyan, Mildred iweka, Norbert young, toun ONI, etc ….now that would be a flipping blockbuster.
