At a time when some fans and Nollywood addicts are craving for new faces to take over from already established figures in the make-believe industry in Nigeria, superstar actress, Uche Jombo has revealed to Nigeriafilms.com the person coming to take over from her.
Nigeriafilms.com caught up with the recently married screen goddess at an event held last weekend. Uche was asked who among the up and coming actress she thinks can take over from her. The script writer cum actress and producer didn’t hesitate in introducing one Ruth Kadiri, who Uche said can take over from her.
Asked the attributes she saw in the budding actress for her to have endorsed her. Uche said, “when I started, I was a script writer and an actress. This separated me from other actresses. It took me close to six years to see someone that could step into that.
“I acted in a film she (Ruth) wrote ‘Mad Sex’. She was just starting then and that was the first time I came across a script written by her though she has written several others before. I saw the potentials in her as a script writer but when I saw her act, I was convinced she ‘could be the next Uche Jombo’ (our words). So, I encouraged her.”
