INTRODUCTION

Uche Jombo is a popular Nigerian actress, screenwriter and film producer. Jombo ventured into the Nigerian movie industry in 1999 in the movie Visa to hell and since then has over sixty movies to her credit and still counting.

EARLY LIFE AND BACKGROUND  

Jombo was born in Abiriba, Abia State, Nigeria. She is a graduate of Mathematics and Statistics from the University of Calabar, and Computer Programming from the Federal University of Technology Minna.

She was not an easy child. She did everything teenagers do but probably more. Her mother was so scared that she had to enroll her in a church drama group and quarterly they give the best drama student scholarship so three years out of her secondary school was paid for by the church. She did that because she was always either trying to play ball with boys or climbing trees.

She is one of those people who would be right if she say she started from a very humble beginning in her career. She did lots of supporting roles and behind the scenes. She think to be consistent at what you do, at a point you should work on yourself more.
She is in love with the art. It was never about money or fame with for her. According to her she can’t count how many movies she did without payment. So when you pursue whatever you do with a passion and the love you have for it, it might not be that lucrative at the beginning but at the end of the day, every other thing follows. That’s how it’s been for her.

When asked in an interview: How has the journey been so far? What encouragement would you give to people just starting out in their acting career?
She said: “I’d like to say it’s been rosy but that is not how it was. It’s been a struggle but by God’s grace, it’s been a successful story. I always tell people starting that it’s always about self belief because in this business you are going to get lots of no’s before you get the yes’. But don’t be discouraged. Work more on your craft and self confidence.

CAREER AND LIFE  
 
It was  like a challenge to her. She was asked “Can you act?” she was like “Yes I can” and she was given a script to read even though that was not what she went there for. That was how she got her first role from Fidelis Duker in 1999. Eventually, the movie, Visa To Hell came out in 2000.

And since then, she has featured in over 60 interesting Nollywood movies.
After years of working as a Nollywood actress, she ventured into script writing where she co-wrote movies like Girls in the hood, a time to love, games men play and the celebrity.
She later ventured into movie production phase with her business named Uche Jombo Studio in 2012.
Uche Jumbo’s Studio has since produced close to five movies and they include; damage, misplaced and many others.

She has received several awards which include the Best Actress by AfroNolly Group in 2008 in London, England; The City People Entertainment awards for Best Actress 2010; Life Changers award, (Nollywood Personality of the Year) United Kingdom; Humanitarian Award for Haiti in New York, USA; Abriba Youth Honour of Pride Award 2010, Abriba, Abia State as well as the Abia State Honours Award 2010 .

Uche Jombo has gained millions of fans worldwide and continues to blaze trails and inspire others around her. She has evolved and come into her own as a versatile actress, able to hold her own anywhere and on any stage. She’s a believer in the new Nollywood and is committed to seeing a quantum leap in the quality of the industry’s output through her efforts via her production house.

On May 16, 2012 Uche got married to her boyfriend Kenney Rodriguez at a private beach wedding on the Island of Puerto Rico. Her wedding which took many by surprise was quite the talk of the town for several weeks.
When asked about her unexpected wedding in an interview
Was it a fairy tale kind of wedding?
It was exactly the kind of wedding I wanted. Every bride has a dream wedding. I had always wanted that kind of simple beach wedding. I went on vacation last year in Puerto Rico Island and I loved it and I said I would like to come back there for my wedding.”
Where is your husband from? How did you meet him?
“Contrary to what i’ve been hearing in the media, he is American and not from Puerto Rico. He has been to Puerto Rico twice and those times were with me. Once on vacation and then we went back for our wedding. He is a New Yorker, he works and lives in New York.
Also, contrary to what I’ve been hearing that I met him online, no I did not. He came to talk to me about some business venture and that’s how we started talking. I met him through a mutual friend who is his business partner.”

How did he propose to you?
“He actually proposed twice! The first time, we just continued talking. The second time, we went jet skiing and I was so scared. The water was so deep, you had to swim like eight feet into the water to get to the bike. I consider myself a very good swimmer but that day, the tides kept pushing me back. By the time I got there, I was so mad, I said “I am so going to kill you” and he said “why don’t you just marry me and then you can kill me afterwards”. And I was like “very funny”, and he said “you haven’t given me an answer”. That was when I knew. Since I didn’t kill him there I said I was going to go back to that exact beach and have our wedding there.”

She was reported to have lost a six month pregnancy in 2014, and earlier in 2015 it was also reported she flashed a baby bump which means she might have been pregnant again but as of 2015 she hasn’t mentioned or show anything about that she wasn’t seen around around either.
