Amaka Igwe definitely is an amazing woman, as she managed to build the Nigerian movie industry literally from scratch. Since the very childhood, she used to be greatly interested in art, dancing and performance.
And she started to take more professional approach to theatrical performances during her studies at the university.
Her first TV series «Checkmate» is considered to be the best Nigerian show of 1990.
Amaka Igwe created the whole media empire that consisted of radio stations and a TV network.
Today, she would have turned 57 and that’s why Google has created the new Doodle in her honor. She died on April 28, 2014.
