JULIET NJEMANZE ON THE SPOT
Juliet Njemanze is definitely known for her kind heart, generosity, and the most lucky actor in the Nollywood film industry and more evidence of that came this week when she gave everything to unitytubes BIOGRAPHY page in an interview. Juliet who loves music and poetry, appeared on the spot show where she said it all, “My name is Juliet Njemanze.” And on top of her impressive pipes, she showed Unitytubes that her solid self-confidence was just as admirable.

unitytubes FOR THE LOVE OF EVERYBODY, CAN WE MEET YOU IN DETAIL?
My name is Juliet Njemanze, I was born and and bred in Kano state, I am from Umu Njemanze kindred of Amawom Owere in Owerri municipal, imo state. I have 3 younger brothers, I am the first child and only girl, my Mother is a nurse and my father is a business man. I finished my OND in Nuhu bamalli Polytechnic Zaria, Kaduna.
@unitytubes ARE YOU BORN TO BE A FILMMAKER OR?
JULIET Acting wasn’t my first Love, it was music and poetry, I was pushed into acting… I followed my Mum who then wanted to be an actress to rehearsals at the AGN chapter in Kano state, they were rehearsing and the Director called me out, I told him I wasn’t an actress, he asked me to participate anyway instead of just sitting and doing nothing. After the rehearsal he called me aside and asked what I wanted to become in the future, I told him A model and a TV show host. He advised me to pursue acting cuz he sees a raw talent, I was relentless because I have never pictured myself an actor, my mum begged me to start coming to rehearsals with her after a few months, I obliged. I had nothing to lose anyway. My first film was shot in Kano state and I remember the only thing the director complained about was I kept looking past the camera, I took the correction and it Never happened again.
@unitytubes WOW, FANTASTIC.
unitytubes HOW DID IT HAPPENED, WHY JULIET CHOOSE LAGOS NOT F.C.T ABUJA?
JULIET I came to Lagos to shoot my first real job in 2013 with Okey Ifeanyi, I was a nervous wreck, that was the first time I was working with people I see on tv…The title is “tears in my heart” and “my regret” it was a great experience but hectic so when I read to Kano, I decided acting wasn’t for me, my mum started begging again, then in 2014, when everything changed… We had already moved to asaba because of the crisis in Kano state, a friend asked me to come to Lagos.
@unitytubes ANY CHALLENGES, OR OBSTACLE ON YOUR PATH TO LIMELIGHT?
JULIET What a day in ibadan, the oyo state capital. Obi Emelonye was holding an audition in Ibadan, I went to Ibadan for the first time, i didn’t have any money for hotel or food, I had just my transport to and from, I was reading with some of the people that came for the audition and they were impressed and they told me I’d ace it when it’s my turn, my turn came and I started off well, until I forgot my lines and I started crying at the spot. I was so lucky to meet a girl that allowed me to stay in her place for that night because it was too late to return to Lagos. The next morning I got a call from Obi Emelonye and he gave me a second chance, I proved myself and got a role in his Movie series “Calabash” My character was Cheta. That experience changed everything, Mr Obi Emelonye was encouraging and told me I had potential and gave me tips on how to be better. And since then I haven’t looked back, same 2014 I worked with Omoni Oboli and she was just as Obi Emelonye was and that gave me the push.That was my my journey began, series of Movie jobs in between 2014 and 2015 but I wasn’t focused,
