Nse Ikpe-Etim, Yinka Davies, Teco Benson Support Onyeka Onwenu’s TV Project


Singer and actress, Onyeka Onwenu, has announced that she would be adapting her book, ‘My Father’s Daughter’ into a television series.

At an event to intimate the press on the new project, Onwenu noted that the book is her memoir which was written according to her ‘Christian ethics’. She said, “I write according to my Christian ethics. I don’t write to malign people. When I thought I was done, the Lord gave me another chapter. I write to educate, entertain and tell the truth. That is why I called out names in my book. I bow when I hear that someone is a writer because it is not easy. If you want to write a memoir, tell the truth.

“Some people have said so many things about me without meeting me. However, I have learnt to be myself and be comfortable in my own skin. They said I was everywhere singing, acting, getting involved in politics, and now, I am even writing. I will continue to do what God wants me to do.”

Singer and voice coach, Yinka Davies, who read excerpts from the book, noted that she had a longstanding relationship with Onwenu, and praised the latterfor being able to do different things at the same time.

Guests at the event include Prof Bankole Shodipo, Nse Ikpe-Etim, Susan Hedef, Chief Edwin Igbokwe, Betty Ijeoma (nee Mbadiwe), Teco Benson and Soni Irabor.

Filmmaker, Izu Ojukwu, who is famous for projects such as ‘Amina’ and ‘76’, will direct the series; while Chichi Nworah and Ngozi Osu will serve as producer and editor respectively.
