      How do you know she’s not a Nigerian citizen? What if she is a dual citizen?

    I am extremely happy for Yvonne Orji’s success. I met her a few years ago and can say she is genuine, funny and super talented.

    Wait is she the lead character in “Insecure” with the short hair? She looks different in pictures. Will look out for the show on Monday.
