Google Honors Amaka Igwe with a Doodle on her 57th Posthumous Birthday



On what would have been her 57th birthday, Google is celebrating the life of Nigerian filmmaker Amaka Igwe with a doodle.

The doodle, which was illustrated by Nigerian-American artist Data Oruwari, celebrates the award winning writer, director, and producer Amaka Igwe on her 57th posthumous birthday.

Amaka Igwe helped transform the Nigerian film industry and built a media empire from the ground up, with her works in movies like “Rattlesnake” (1995), “Violated” (1995) and “A Barber’s Wisdom” (2001 for Mnet), which helped set a higher production standard for Nollywood at the time. She wrote and directed the phenomenally successful “Fuji House of Commotion” (2001-2012), which gave her dominance of the national television series industry.

Uzoamaka Audrey Igwe was born on this day in 1963 in Port Harcourt, Rivers State.

    As we celebrate her life, please let’s not forget she died because of getting slow medical treatment due to striking doctors. I’m not saying the striking doctors are to blame, but this should be discussed because healthcare issues are a systematic problem in Nigeria.
