“Life we say is not a race but indeed a journey. What matters for every individual is to reach their peak of success.” This is the passion that rules propitious Nigerian actress Calista okoronkwo to greater heights.
NigeriaFilms.Com had a chat with Chika okoronkwo after we had the opportunity to watch the movie titled ‘College girls’ which is currently making waves in the market.
In our interrogation to find out where she has been hiding all these years after her triumphant ingress into the movie industry early 2000, Calista revealed to NigeriaFilms.com that she’s been in school (University of Nigeria Nsukka to study Economics) since 2006. She has now completed school hence, her come back into the film industry.
“I had to stanch acting for school because I believe being naturally artistic should not prevent one from pursuing formal education. One thing about Ghana or the Nigeria movie industry is that if you are not consistent in the movie industry, movie fans forgets you. Sometimes when you are lucky, they recollect some of your movies or worst; will not even remember your existence outright!” – Calista lamented.
Talking about the current state of Ghana/Nigerian movie industry, she stated that, the industry has come of age.
“As you can now see, movies are premiered instead of the former traditional ways of just distribution after production, artiste fees are relatively soaring, more award schemes are coming in to reward excellence, and the like. All of these go to show that the industry is really growing at a faster pace”
Calista okoronkwo is not based in Ghana but currently in Ghana shooting movies. She’s had stint in movies such as; COLLEGE GIRLS, EFIA AND FRIENDS, THE SUSPECTS, GOD OF SHILOH, AZONTO BABES, BIGER LADIES and still counting.
With the help of her manager, Uchenna Mbunabo, C.E.O of One and Two film production, Calista is confident she can easily survive in the movie industry. Apart from acting, Calista will soon be going into film directing and promised to update the media and her fans any time she is set to direct her own movie.
