Ramsey Nouah – Nollywood’s Lover boy

If you haven’t seen or heard of Ramsey Nouah before, then my guess would be more than right if I say you’ve not been watching Nollywood movies. This is because his name is very familiar to virtually everyone – young or old – who watches films in Nigeria. Do you know the guy isn’t a full-blown Nigerian? Well, read on; you’ll soon get to know how.

Ramsey Nouah Biography

Ramsey Adetokunbo Nouah was born on July 16, 1973, in Edo state, Nigeria, to an Israeli father and a mother who hails from Owo, Ondo state, Nigeria.

He was brought up in Surulere area of Lagos state. He attended Atara primary school and later, Community Grammar School, both in Lagos. He then proceeded to the University of Lagos, where he later bagged a degree in mass communication.


Ramsey Nouah started his acting career with a role in Fortunes, one of the very popular television soap operas at the time, in which he played the role of a character named “Jeff Akin Thomas”. Since then, he’s been featured in many Nigerian films. Because he is very fair complexioned, Ramsey Nouah was chosen to star in many love-related romantic Nollywood movies. He later became very famous for featuring in love-related films – an attribution which earned him the nickname “Lover boy”. Even up to date, Ramsey Nouah is one of the most sought after actors in the Nigerian movie industry, as he’s acted in both English and Yoruba movies.

In fact, his most recent award, the African Movie Academy Award for the Best Actor in a Leading role came by virtue of his role in a Yoruba movie, “The figurine.”
