Nigerian Nollywood actress Liz Benson who is considered as one of the pioneer member of Nollywood went off the screen during early 2000s after buying her way into the hearts of many Nigerian homes.

She used to be the toast of many lovers of Nigerian films and TV series, signaling the stage long before Genevieve Nnaji, Omotola Jalade and the rest came along to take it from there.

Liz Benson journey into stardom began with featuring in the popular television soap, “Fortunes” in 1993 where she played the role of Mrs. Agnes Johnson. Apart from “Fortunes” which ran for at least two years on NTA, she acted in various TV serials and movies before hitting it big with the coming of Nollywood. In 1994, she acted in Glamour Girls, one of the blockbusters of the early years of Nollywood. The movie, which also featured the enigmatic Eucharia Anunobi, turned Liz Benson into a star.

She later got married to Pastor Great Ameye of the Freedom Family Assembly International Church, with the church based in Jesse, Delta state. She was ordained as an evangelist in the church and this had an adverse effect on her acting career, her rise to stardom halted. If you were not conversant with Nigerian movies in the 90s and early 2000s then you will not know she was the beauty goddess of that era.

But being married to a pastor and ordained an evangelist in the church means she runs the church with her husband and makes her busy with the work of the kingdom.
