Renowned actor, Bob Manuel Udokwu has been pencilled down for a chieftaincy title by an interest group in Nollywood called Ohanaeze Ndigbo Nollywood.
The group, in a press statement signed by its president, Harris Chuma and made available to Nigeriafilms.com, disclosed that Bob would be conferred with the title at the forthcoming 2015 Ogbunike Cave City Film Festival, which holds at the Ogbunike Civic Development Centre, Abor-Amawa-Ogbunike, Anambra State from August 9 to 11.
It was further disclosed in the statement that the choice of the actor for the honour was based on recognition and appreciation of his unrelenting effort in revitalizing movie activities in Anambra State.
Also, he was considered for this for being an active promoter of the Igbo culture and language, using Nollywood window and other entertainment medium. He would be conferred with the Ezeship title.
In 2014, this same group conferred veteran actress, Ngozi Ezeonu as Ezenwanyi Ndigbo Nollywood at the Igbo Film Festival held in Asaba, Delta State.
Another actor, Richard Mofe Damijo was also honoured with the Dike Oha title, while Theodora Ibekwe-Oyebade, a UK-based actress, was conferred with the Ezenwanyi UK Nollywood title.
