Okorocha Didnít Fire Me As His Protocol Officer ó Shirley Igwe

Background

I was born into a loving family and my childhood was a happy one. I have two brothers and four sisters, who I love and have a lot of respect for.

Education


 
I had my post-elementary education at the Federal Government Girls College, Owerri, Imo State, and it was a wonderful experience filled with exciting memories. Afterwards, I earned a bachelorís degree in Mass Communication from the Imo State University. I also attended the Cranfield Aviation School in South Africa, and I have a masterís degree in Media and Communication from the New York Film Academy.

Nollywood

I started off as a friend to many popular Nollywood actors, who always invited me for auditions. Initially, I wasnít interested because I was modelling and schooling at the time. One day, I went for an audition which was not planned for. There, I was chosen and since then, my career has been a roller-coaster narrative.

Modelling

I started my modelling career when I was a student and I have done many jobs that I canít even remember now. I was once the face of Delta Soap and I featured in many of their promotional materials at the time. This made me very popular as many people came to know me. In spite of the fact that Iím now in the movie industry, Iíve not stopped modelling.

Breakthrough

The first movie I ever featured in Nollywood is titled Facebook Babes. And I will credit filmmaker, Andy Best, as the person that gave me my first opportunity in the industry. However, a lot of things  including the movies I featured in and the modelling jobs I did, thrust me into the limelight. I honestly canít single out one as that which gave me my big break. Other films I have featured in include The King and the Maidens, Last Three Digits, Mercy the Bus Driver, I Broke My Heart, among others.

Lessons

I believe that to be successful in Nollywood, you have to know your onions, humble yourself and keep learning. You shouldnít feel like you have learnt it all, because nobody knows it all. I think itís a process, and you have to make sure you are always in progress. To improve my skills as a filmmaker, I read a lot online, take courses, and attend workshops. I also learn about the production aspect such as cameras, lens and lighting in a bid to widen my knowledge as a filmmaker. Meanwhile, I will love to work with people like Emem Isong, Lancelot Imaseun, Kunle Afolayan and other people that I can learn from. As a kid, I used to watch a lot of Liz Bensonís movies because I was very fond of her.

Scripts

The major factor I consider before accepting scripts is the storyline. It has to be rich, thought-provoking and meaningful. I basically love good and fantastic stories. I think it helps the actor. If the story is good, you can have some measure of confidence that the sound quality, cinematography will also be alright. People watch television and whatever they see affect their lives and mindset in one way or another on a daily basis. I hope to change the world through movies.

Rochas Okorocha and I

I once served as the Principal Protocol Officer to the Imo State Governor, Rochas Okorocha, and it was an amazing experience and I enjoyed it. I also learnt a lot. Contrary to what some people may think, I wasnít given the sack. Rather, I followed my passion, which is filmmaking. I have been acting and producing since then. Apart from movies, I also do others things which I wonít bring to the notice of the public.

Fashion

I dress to fit my body type, and I donít go with trends. I say it with all sense of modesty that God has endowed me naturally, and Iím thankful for that.  I do not care what everyone wears; if it does not suit my body, I will not wear it. I am also always mindful of the occasion Iím attending and this also determines my mode of dressing. I am a shy person. I do not like to appear unsure, so I dress to be confident. However, if I find what suits me that is trendy, that will be great and I will go for it.

I love wristwatches, perfumes, hair extensions, shoes and bags and I spend quite a lot on them. I have a Swarovski wristwatch that I barely wear. Sometimes, I bring it out, admire it, smile to myself and put it back in my wardrobe.

Hobbies

Whenever Iím not busy on set, I like to hang out with my true friends, and we gist a lot. I enjoy blogging, swimming, bowling and knitting. I also love going to the cinemas or I visit friends. Those who know me also know that I spend a lot of time on the telephone, making calls.
