August 24, 2014 – Why I Relocated Back To Nigeria From The US: Nollywood Actress Ameze Imarhiagbe
Nigerian actress Ameze who starred in Ripples, Suicide Mission, Dead End & Flesh and Blood has finally relocated to Lagos state from the United States of America.
The medical school graduate has let go of her medical career for a full-time acting career.
Despite her dazzling performance in Ripples, Amaeze suddenly popped into the blue leaving her fans high and dry. Now she says she is back with a bang with her new movie, I Got Ur Back.
How’s your latest effort, I Got Your Back doing?
It was premiered in a big way in the USA. I am planning to do same in Nigeria, Ghana and the UK. I am back for real! And the feedback I am getting from my fans and colleagues has been simply overwhelming.Why did you take a break from acting?
Contrary to what a lot of people think, I never left the industry. I am multi-talented and I have been expressing myself in other ways aside acting. As you very well know, I am also a script writer and I have been involved in a couple of American productions. I have a US based production company so I have been busy packaging a lot of stuff.
So could you share your American experience with us?
Wow! It’s been quite exciting! You see I have a passion for storytelling. I have been involved in feature and short film productions and collaborated on a couple of scripts. Some of these productions are in post production phase while others are completed. They include Closure, Pier 16, Lost In Translation and My Nana & I. I have also been organising writing classes geared towards aspiring youths. My production company is called Senamedia House. Our first feature film was I Got Ur Back. The movie deals with relationships and challenges in marriage. I also did Closure, Pier 16, Lost In Translation and My Nana. I starred in most of them.
Tell us about your relationship with Zeb Ejiro?
Zeb is like a big brother; a trend setter. He is such a talented movie maker and I am inspired by his energy and passion. I am excited to be collaborating with him on a very big project which we are currently working on. It’s something fresh and new, never seen in these parts. Why I respect him so much is that he puts his money where his mouth is.
How has family life been and what else do you engage in outside moviemaking?
Family life has been good. I am eternally grateful to God. I work in the medical field in the US. My schedule is flexible. In America you have to work to pay the bills.
