By  | 

Our very own super star, Adesua Etomi-Wellington is one of the four women on the cover of Vogue US magazine’s latest issue.

April 2019 issue is tagged “The Global Issue” and has two covers
celebrating 14 global superstars from 14 different countries.

Read what they wrote about Adesua below…

Nigerian actress Adesua Etomi-Wellington can’t walk down the street in
Lagos without getting mobbed, and if she’s with her husband, the actor
Banky Wellington, forget it—a trip to the grocery store launches a
thousand selfies. But unlike some of her cohorts on the shoot, she’s
more of a third-culture kid, born in Nigeria and raised mainly in
England. (She speaks in two fluent accents—Lagos and the British
Midlands.) She went to school in Coventry, studied drama at University
of Wolverhampton, and then got a nine-to-five job with the fashion arm
of a large supermarket chain. It was then that, as she puts it, “I can’t
explain it—I felt I had to go back to Nigeria.”

That was toward
the end of 2012, and in the past six years or so she has become one of
the biggest stars in Nollywood, Nigeria’s relatively young film
industry. The Wedding Party (2016), a colorful and witty romantic comedy
in which she plays the lead opposite Wellington, was the
highest-grossing film in the history of Nigerian cinema, until it was
eclipsed by its sequel, which also starred Etomi-Wellington. In fact,
she points out, of the four films that have done best for the relatively
young industry, she is in three. “I love, love, love Nollywood,”
Etomi-Wellington says brightly over tea and biscuits at the shoot. “I
feel like she’s my baby, and it’s my responsibility, along with a lot of
other performers, to grow her.””
