Dark-complexioned Chigozie Alichi, popularly known as Chizzy, is an up-and-coming Enugu-State-based Nollywood actress. The final year undergraduate of Agricultural Engineering at the Enugu State University of Science and Technology, ESUT.
Chizzy, the last child in a family of six, disclosed that her passion for acting began when she was a child. Her parents also encourage and support her acting career.
“My passion for acting started when I was a child. I used to watch a lot of home videos and sometimes I used my lunch money to rent the videos to watch. I started acting in late 2010. The truth is that nobody introduced me into Nollywood. One fateful day, I was walking past when I saw the banner of Actors Guild of Nigeria at their office at the National Museum in Enugu. I went in to enquire and the person told me to register. The next day I registered and started going for auditions. I have always wanted to act, so I saw it as a good opportunity and that was how it all began for me,” Chizzy revealed.
How does she combine acting and her schooling? Although her education comes first, however, the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) strike has given her more opportunity to do what she loves doing.
“The truth is that even though I love acting, my education always comes first. I go on movie location mostly when nothing serious is happening in school or when we are on holidays. For instance, we have been on strike for months thus I use the opportunity in shooting movies and developing my acting talent instead of just idling away,” she explained. As rising actress, has she ever been sexually harassed just to get a role?
She said unhesitatingly, “No, not at all. God has been on my side and I am grateful to Him.” About her first time on set, Chizzy noted that besides being a shy person, she was so nervous.
“It was something else coupled with the fact that I am a very shy person. I saw those stars I had been watching on television live and I was so nervous, shy and happy at the same time. It was like a dream,” she emphasised.
Who is that male Nollywood actor she has had a crush on with as a growing lady and had eventually acted with in a movie? She blushed but said, “It is Kenneth Okonkwo. When we acted together, it felt like a dream, I mean I couldn’t believe it.
I was his girlfriend in the movie and it was awesome. It’s a one to six part movie entitled ‘Soul of a king’, blood on the throne and reign of terror’. The movie also featured talented actresses like Mercy Johnson, Eve Esin and Ngozi Ezeonu. He is so professional when it comes to acting.” How has it been for a fast-rising actress like her in the industry?
“It has been challenging, fun and a lot of hard work but above all, God’s grace is sufficient,” she noted. Speaking about her aspiration in life, Chizzy revealed: “I aspire to be the leading name in Nollywood and Hollywood with lots of investments.” Her greatest fear in life is defeat. “I always want to win so I don’t succumb easily to defeat,” she said.
Chizzy has played numerous roles in movies; however, the most interesting character she had ever played was that of a blind and depraved girl. “It was the role of a blind and wicked girl. It was very interesting and challenging at the time because it is not my character.
However, I was able to fit into the character as I had to watch foreign movies and also do research on how blind people behave and act. Also, I had to learn how to squeeze my ever smiling face to look wicked. It was tasking but I had fun on set.”
She admires Kogi-born Nollywood actress, Mercy Johnson, a great deal: “I admire Mercy Johnson a lot because she knows her onions. She is a good and talented actress.”
Every woman has an asset which she values most on her body, always proud of and willing to show off. For the ever-smiling Chizzy, her hips are her sexiest asset, although people also love her height. “My hips are my sexiest asset. Although people also love my height but my hips are what they admire most,” she disclosed.
Would she reject any movie role, “Except for acting nude, I will take any role given to me. My dignity is very important to me,” she said.
She defines her style as casual and very simple even as she loves to wear fitted clothes to flaunt her hips. “My style is casual and very simple. I love to wear fitted and colourful outfits because of my dark complexion which also flaunts my hips. However, I will never be caught dead wearing transparent clothes,” she said. Between talent and looks, which would she flaunt?
The Nollywood star said she would rather show off her talent. “I will flaunt my talent because with looks you can only attract people physically but with talent, people will admire and cherish you for who you are.”
Chizzy has played lead roles in movies like ‘Drop of blood’, ‘Kiss on a royal balcony’, ‘Blind soul’, ‘Soul of a king’, ‘Udaraugo’, among others.
Obviously somebody is impersonating Nollywood actress, Nkiru Sylvanus on Facebook, she took time to send a message to the public dissociating herself from the fraudsters.
The message reads:
It has just gotten to my knowledge that some jobless fraudsters has been using my name on Facebook Nkeiruka Sylvanus to swindle innocent poor Nigerians, pls disregard these people, know that I will be proud to associate with whatever project I embark on. One IRIA EHIS with a KEY STONE bank account num 6017544801 is not from me, and is not connected to me in anyway. So stop giving him ur hard earned money. He is a dupe.
Daniella Okeke, the star of Emem Isong’s much awaited flick, Lagos Cougar, has been causing stir with her voluptuous booty and
gigantic boobs. Those who know her just a few months ago will tell that there is a huge change in the actress. The actress hasn’t been this curvaceous which means there may be clear indications that she underwent a complete plastic surgery on her boobs and booty
As at last year, Daniella could pass by without getting a side look let alone a stare from men and women alike but that doesn’t seem to be the story of the actress currently.
And if you think she will jump out to deny the allegations, you will be wrong. She even in a way confirmed that there was was work done on her. She once posted a picture of herself on her Instagram page and she put the caption, “Dr 9210 oh yeah I want my ass bigger buhahahahahah Dr ray where u @???.” If you know the Show, you will know Dr Ray is one of the biggest names in cosmetic surgery. Her boobs and booty are currently the talk of the industry.
