Someone will claim I have a sugar daddy-Chy Nwakanma
Rising actress, Chiagoziem Nwakanma, known as Chy Nwakanma may not be a household name yet. However her talent and dedication is not in doubt.
The graduate of University of Illinois, Chicago (UIC) has debunked claims that actresses are usually funded by ‘sugar daddies’
According to her, not everyone is guilty of that claim.
“People will always say something. I just completed a project I funded by myself. Someone, somewhere will claim I have a sugar daddy but I can proudly say that I got the money from my mother who was even more excited about the project than I was. Even if a few people have sugar daddies as sponsors, not everyone is guilty of that. So, please, they should start mentioning names specifically and stop generalizing”, She told The Nation.
On why she relocated to Nigeria, the free-spirited damsel said: “I came back to do my NYSC but the industry has been fair to me so I’m still here.I actually moved back to Nigeria in 2015 and that same year landed a lead role that launched my acting career in Nollywood.I made my television debut in Lowladee’s TV series “This is it” (2016), where I played the role of “Dede”, a young, naive and clueless wife.In 2018, I made my cinema debut as “Kate” in the movie ‘Disguise’ “.
Nwakanma also harped on some big things that have happened to her in Nollywood
“A lot of “big” things have happened to me so far in my journey. I’ve gotten the opportunity to work with some of the people I watched growing up and admired.
But the biggest thing so far would be getting to stand on the AMVCA stage to collect an award. I used to watch the awards on the television; but this time I was there live! It was surreal”
