NOLLYWOOD: Adesua Etomi Makes Vogue Front Page!
The Wedding Party was one movie that pushed Adesua Etomi into becoming a top movie star.
So, it should not be a surprise that she's now been featured on the cover of next month's American Vogue, alongside 13 other actresses from all over the world.
Adesua has starred in four of the highest grossing films in Nollywood — King Of Boys, The Wedding Party 1 & 2 and 10 Days in Sun City.
In addition to this, she leads a bunch of the Nollywood films currently on the streaming giant, Netflix, including The Wedding Party, Falling and The Arbitration.
She's celebrated alongside a bunch of renowned actresses, including Avengers star, Scarlett Johansson, who was the highest paid actress in the world last year.
Speaking about Nollywood to Vogue, Etomi-Wellington said:
"I love, love, love Nollywood, I feel like she’s my baby, and it’s my responsibility, along with a lot of other performers, to grow her."
Well she has definitely made a difference and is being recognized for her contribution to the growth of the Nigerian movie industry.
