August 18, 2014 – Meet Hollywood Actress Uzo Aduba’s Nigerian Mother [PICTURES]
Igbo-born Hollywood actress Uzoamaka Nwaneka Aduba who won Emmy Awards on Saturday the 16th of August, 2014 is very grateful to God and her mother who has been by her side all this while.
The humble lady won an Emmy Award for Outstanding Guest Actress in a TV Series at the Creative Arts Emmy Awards that held last Saturday at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles California.
Though she has not been spotted with her father in recent times, she has been spotted with her aged mother on several occasions.
Few days ago, she took her mother to a dinner at the White House and shared the pictures with her fans.
She captioned the above photo “So #Proud to be able to share this evening with my mother. Dinner at The White House. #StateDinner #AfricanSummit #SweetMother”

On the meaning of her name, Uzo Aduba said:
“My full name is Uzoamaka Nwaneka Aduba. It is Igbo, and my first name is actually a sentence meaning ‘the road is good’ (Uzo a maka). Igbo names have meaning and are done with purpose and intention for their children. My parents named me Uzoamaka because despite any trial in whatever stage of their lives, ‘the road is good’ because it caused them to eventually meet, marry and have me. I now apply that to life. No matter what the journey might bring, no matter how hard the journey, I know Uzo a maka.”
Nice one! Correct Naija pikin
