Most Nigerians who often travel overseas to other foreign lands are not unfamiliar with the drilling they have to go through at the immigration point of entry as a result of the mistrust, suspicion and dishonesty that arises by mere virtue of being a Nigerian.
Thus, the saying that Nigerians are bad news or nothing good comes out of Nigeria…
But today and time and again this saying has been disproved by many Nigerians living in diaspora. And that brings me to the 67th Primetime EMMY Awards where one winner held my attention. She first caught my attention when I watched her drama series as I was not only amused by her acting but with the way she portrayed the character “Suzanne Crazy Eyes Warren”
For those of you familiar with “Orange is the new Black” you will know exactly who I am talking about. Uzo Aduba, though an American citizen by virtue of birth is equally a Nigerian citizen by virtue of descent. Uzoamaka Nwanneka Aduba was born into an Igbo family which hails from Anambra State in Nigeria.
I believe all Nigerians are proud of this great woman with enormous talent. As she has over the years won numerous awards.
Congratulations on your win as the Outstanding Supporting Actress in a drama series in the 67th EMMY AWARDS.
We are proud of you.
