Nigerian born Nollywood Actor and Producer Enyinna Nwigwe has mounted an impressive climb to stardom during a bi-global career, working in partnership with some of the most respected producers and directors in Africa and beyond.

The talented and good-looking Enyinna Nwigwe is from Imo state, Nigeria. Andy/Yinna (as friends like to call him)is the last of four children born to public servant parents in Nigeria. A graduate of the University of Calabar in Nigeria, Enyinna first made the headlines in Nigeria when as a shy teenager he won the teenage tennis tournament in his state, a title he went on to defend the next year. He began his entertainment career as a runway model and transcended into a much sought after model for print advertising, but ultimately found his calling when he met internationally acclaimed filmmaker Jeta Amata who instantly saw the potential in him and went on to cast him in his first movie role and thus his prominent acting career was born.

Enyinna has been described as the ‘ladies-man’ as his appearance in any movie keeps the girls wanting more. he however shies away from this fact. He believes that he should be judged by his skills rather than his looks.

Beginning in 2005 with starring roles in videos such as ‘Wheel of Change’ and ‘Last Game’ he earned the reputation of a rising star in Nigeria. He continued to land a variety of roles such as an attorney in ‘Games Men Play, He also took it further and dared to go where eagles dread when he played a gay lawyer in “Reloaded”, Enyinna went on to build a more impressive fan base when he took on the role of the philandering bachelor in the Nigerian- Guinness sponsored tv series “ Bachelors”,The leading man in Jeta Amata’s ‘Mary Slessor’ with which he also earned his first “Producer” title and also has Titles like “Sarauniya” (The story of Queen Amina) under his Producer belt, all geared towards preserving the Nigerian heritage. He also starred in “The Amazing Grace”, and most recently starring in the explosive political thriller ‘Black November’ as Tamuno. It is ‘Black November” a riveting film by Jeta Amata which depicts the violence, corruption and human injustice in the Niger Delta that has introduced Enyinna to America and potentially the rest of the world.

Americans have already grown fond of his glowing gifts as an actor with many suggesting that he is a rare combination of Sidney Poitier and Denzel Washington. Gaudy accolades to say the least, but a measuring stick for just how great Enyinna Nwigwe can become.
