Being a black woman is not all about living a life of struggle and drama. Sometimes, it’s more about living a simple life, one where you can easily take time off and enjoy the good things of life, yet making the most of what you have and achieve goals. With this, I would like to introduce Nse Ikpe-Etim, she is making today’s hall of fame. At 42, she doesn’t look anything above 23.Nse Ikpe-Etim is a ground breaking Nigerian actress, known for her eloquence, sophistication and determination. Nse isn’t just an actress, she is also a writer, professional chef and a lover of art. She once took a break from acting to venture into the Banking and Business sector. Later on, she went into the Fashion industry and also improved her culinary skills. Talk about the diversity of an African woman.Forgive me, but I would like to compare Nse with Viola Davis, because when acting, she’ll have you glued to your screen, as you watch her become one with the role she is acting. And when you talk about Black Don’t Crack, Nse will pass for an icon. This natural beauty has aged like fine wine, she has a stunning body which flaunts her amazing figure. Her gaped tooth gives her a lovely smile, and her full black, natural hair is just perfect.When our woman crush isn’t acting, she loves to read, write, cook, watch football (she is a Manchester United F.C fan) and play scrabble. Some of her works include: Reloaded, Mr. and Mrs., Fifty, The Visit, Phone Swap.
Nse has won: 2010 Nigerian Entertainment, Best Actress Film/ Short Story: Reloaded.
