Is Uche Jumbo Creating Nollywood's Future Stars?

In the last one decade, screen diva and film maker Uche Jumbo has cast her heart and energy into quite a number of creative directions. Many of these have manifested in ground-shaking movies, achievements, recognition and other remarkable results.

However, despite all that she has achieved, the pretty actress appears to have been struck by the same bug that 'hit' the popular character in Charles Dickens' book, 'Oliver Twist.'

Before now, she had cast quite a wide array of Nollywood stars in various movie projects at different points in time but judging from her recent incursions into uncharted grounds in Nollywood, she might as well be on the verge of creating an entire generation of new, extremely young and amazingly promising movie stars.

For those who might not understand where this is leading, perhaps a few questions would form strong pointers - Do you know Nigeria's former Super Eagles' player, Julius Aghahowa? Do you know Nigeria's multi-award winning singer, 2 Face Idibia? Do you know his wife, Annie Idibia? If you answered yes to any of the questions asked then it might interest you to know that the daughters (Aghahowa and the Idibias) of these prominent personalities have been drafted into the Nigerian movie industry.

Aghahowa's 11-year-old daughter, Isabelle Aghahowa has made her acting debut in Nollywood. She cuts her teeth in the movie world by playing the role of identical twins separated at birth and given to two different mothers in Uche Jumbo's new movie 'Unconditional.'

Isabelle plays the dual role of Dakore's daughter and Uche Jombo's daughter in this movie.

Things get even more exciting when we discover that also in the movie is 2 Face and Annie's daughter, who coincidentally bears the same name with Aghahowa's daughter, Isabelle.

Isabelle Idibia's specific role in the movie is yet to be revealed but the 4 year old has apparently followed her mum's acting footsteps.

Some of the faces to expect in this flick are Dakore Akande, Annie Macaulay and Uche Jumbo. Others would be revealed in as work progresses.
