A certain nollywood actress, Ijeoma Okori, passed on during childbirth weeks ago, however so many blogs mistook the actress for another popular actress and Ex-Delta Soap model Angelina Okorie.
Well, a photo of the late actress has now surfaced online.
27-year-old actress was buried amidst tears on Saturday – February 22, 2014 in her hometown in Imo State.
Until her death, she was a member of the Actors Guild of Nigeria

Nollywood actress Rukky Sanda’s latest movie, Gold Diggin has received negative reviews from critics and fans who watched it.
From the first scenes of ‘Gold diggin’ the new flick by actress/producer/director Rukky Sanda, it becomes obvious that one is set for an uncomfortable experience. The playbook is painfully clear. There is a thread of a story, a semblance of a plot but not much else. It does not matter though as Ms Sanda has to make a movie out of her limited resources. Who says it has to be a decent one?
She casts herself (of course) in the lead as a bimbo from the upper side of town who does not have much of a life. Or a brain either. She goes through life partying, drinking and bedding any two bit hustler who happens to have a semi-hit song or film.
She also casts Ghanaian star Yvonne Nelson in the best friend role as the other bimbo with half a brain who provides the fuel to her fire, urging her on her wild-partying ways and talking some sense into her on the rare occasion. It is all stuff you have seen too many times before to really care. A more capable actress would have been wasted in this role but Miss Nelson does not seem to mind, employing her striking physique to elicit emotions in the most virile of viewers. Everything is manipulative. And exploitative too.There is a third best friend somewhere but she shows up only once. Or is it twice. You won’t miss her. She cannot act to save her life.
But do not blame her. Nobody is doing any acting here. Everyone is playing off on their public image. Denrele Edun shows up to do Denrele, Dammy Krane is Dammy Krane. You might know some dude named Sexy Steel. He seems to have some claim to fame as Sanda’s character promptly jumps into bed with him after being convinced by Nelson’s character that he is a star. Rukky Sanda is being the Rukky Sanda we love to hate and even Alexx Ekubo who tends to come out of these sort of movies with some dignity intact slums through this one.
Ekubo plays the long-suffering hunk who must fall in love with Sanda (for no conceivable reason,) apart to give her tale a redeeming arc. There is nothing to root for here, nobody to care for. The love story is inert, the chemistry is non-existent and the acting is zero. But we’ve said that before.
The only thing worth watching here is Sanda herself. She is never going to win an Oscar and does not have the range of a Mercy Johnson but she is savvy enough to understand that roles like this are what work best for her. She has a blast wearing as little as she can get away with, cursing, looking pretty and imitating Reese Witherspoon’s Elle Woods in the ‘Legally blonde’ films. She also scores some of the film’s funniest lines and shows deft comic timing. You do not care about her vapid character’s shenanigans at all but you might find yourself amused by the performance.
The first half of the film plays like an extended music video. All music, dancing and little direction. There is a disconnect with the second half and the film feels like a series of stills cobbled together to make an unwholesome whole. The screenplay is bland and has only a few decent lines of dialogue going for it. Sanda’s direction is 90’s home video style and the background music/soundtrack insists on narrating the whole story.
As a producer and maybe even a director, Rukky Sanda showed some promise with ‘Keeping my man’, her first major theatre outing released last year but this one takes her 10 steps back.
Jim Iyke ‘s superstar status seems to be climbing as he has now been cast in the lead role for a Kenyan blockbuster “My Life In Crime”. The movie is based on a bestseller novel series – “My Life in Crime”, “My Life in Prison” and “My Life with a Criminal” by highly acclaimed Kenyan author, John Kiriamiti
As a result, the Nollywood stud has been out in Kenya going from press conferences and galas to TV shows and radio interviews. With his reality TV series, “Unscripted” slated to commence in a few days, Jim Iyke ‘s career star seems to beon the rise.

The English Language student of Tai Solarin University of Education(TASUED), Ijebu Ode, Ogun State, in this interview speaks on her love for acting, fashion preferences and how she has been combining the home front with her acting career.
- Growing up.
Growing up was a little bit of fun and much more discipline from my parents. I had my primary school education at St Bennedect Primary School, Abeokuta, Ogun State and my secondary school at Our Lady of Apostle, Ijebu Ode also in Ogun State. I did Diploma in Law at Ogun State University (OSU). I am at present studying English at Tai Solarin University, Ogun State.
Foray into acting.
Acting is my passion. I joined the industry seven years ago as a freelancer, I do not belong to any caucus, neither did I train under anybody in the industry. I had to do it on a part-time basis because of my schooling. I am in my final year now. My first movie was Ese Aimodi. I’ve lost count of the number of movies I have featured in till date. I have never had a challenging role because all the roles I’d played so far had been good. The only challenge I faced when I started was meeting the right people.
Description of self.
I am a good and God-fearing person. I do not backbite neither do I gossip about people. In short, I am a one-minded person.
Philosophy of life.
My philosophy is: Live and let’s live because what goes around will definitely come around.
Definition of style.
Style is a particular way of doing, designing or producing something. My style is classy and gorgeous. I love wearing English attires.
I do not have any beauty regimen. I do not use too heavy make-up and I make sure my hairdo is one that befits me. I make sure I do not use stuffs like gel, facial, cleanser and so on. The weather and the occasion I am going to determine my mood of dressing.
I don’t have a favourite designer. Whenever I want to buy my fashion ensemble, what I look out for is colour and whether it fits me, I am not a designer freak.
Green, pink and blue
I use any nice perfume I can lay my hands on.
Choice of accessories.
I go for normal and moderate accessories.
Accessory I can’t do without.
Most expensive item in my wardrobe.
My shoes and clothes.
What I won’t be caught dead wearing.
I don’t wear bikini. Then on bra and pant, I believe that one’s underwear should not be seen, it should be covered by one’s dress. I do not wear bikini too.
My hair and nails.
I like fixing weavon and I like my nails bare.
Opinion on toning.
Toning is not good. I cannot do it.
Diet or exercise.
My take on cosmetic surgery.
I do not know anything about it and that is because I do not like it.
I give myself a treat with my husband.
Tattoo or piercing.
I can’t do any of the two because they are painful.
I am indifferent about it because I feel every woman should wear what suits her.
Greatest physical asset.
I cherish every part of my body.
Cooking and watching movies.
Combining the home front with my studies and careers.
I attend lectures at weekends, acting is part-time, so it is easy for me to combine everything and it is not stressful at all.
Coping with advances from male admirers.
I do not usually have problems with them. I turn them down politely.
Secret of beauty.
Pains and gains of being a celebrity.
The pain is that when I go out, I spend more than is expected. While the gain is that it opens doors of opportunities for me.
Advice on how to stay young and beautiful.
Women should take good care of their bodies. They should eat lots of fruits, avoid heavy food at night and should not eat when they are not hungry. They should also avoid bleaching cream because it wrinkles the body and makes the skin looks older than it should be.
To my fans.
Be focused and keep your head up. Determination is a key for success, be determined and do not give up until you win.
