I could describe Enyinna Nwigwe as a luxurious slice of chocolate cake, but it would be an understatement. I could describe him as a delicious bowl of seafood okra but the beauty that is Enyinna pass Okra. Enyinna’s face in Nollywood is nothing new, He has acted in different Nollywood movies, but I only noticed him in the movie “The wedding party” where he played Nonso Onwuka the brother to Dozie Onwuka played by Banky W.
Enyinna the beautiful is also an avid foodie, one who isn’t ashamed to cook or ask for seafood okra :p And as he also cooks, he surely deserves some accolades.
I remember looking through his pictures on Instagram and being swooned, of course it ended with me making a comment and him asking for a bowl of seafood okra. Enyinna, you see, I gat you bro!
I refer to Enyinna as the only Nigerian, Igbotic cow boy.
Apart from his acting skills, Enyinna has a very clean dress sense. The dude can wear anything and look like a million bucks. His baby face, his acting skills and his overall personality sets him apart from most male actors.
On a serious note, I was mostly swooned by Enyinnas’ love for food/cooking and I instantly knew I had to do an interview with him. Not only is he a pleasant person, but he’s also the real deal. I was curious to learn about him and I’m sure most of us wonder how he lives his daily life.
