Enyinna Nwigwe gets ‘Chi Turu Ugo’ title from Imo community
Notable actor, Enyinna Nwigwe has joined the league of titled men in Igbo land, following his formal conferment with the title ‘Chi Turu Ugo 1’ (One Crowned by God) by the Logara community in Imo State, under the royal headship of HRH Felix .I. Njoku, the Ogaraku II of Logara.
The investiture which took place on December 26, 2021, before some prominent sons and daughters of Igbo land is coming on the heels of the activities of the Enyinna Nwigwe Foundation, ENF, which the actor established to provide succour to less fortunate members of the society.
Indigenes of Logara community are particularly enthralled with the activities of the foundation which provided palliatives for widows and other indigent members of the society during the COVID-19 pandemic lockdown, which the foundation executed with the generous support of organisations like the Dangote Group.
Expressing his gratitude to indigenes of Logara and their traditional ruler, the actor who hails from Obiangwu, Ngor Okpala, Imo State, says the honour will motivate him to do more through the foundation.
According to him, “I feel really honoured. Titles are a big deal in my culture and with purpose, good intentions and a heart for other people, a title grants you a bit more audibility and access. I didn’t really see it coming. I was made to understand the honour was given based on previous endeavours for the community. The foundation will not relent. We recently had outreaches in Abuja, where we supported people with wheelchairs and cash donations. This traditional title is a call to do more’’.
Actor, producer, and creative entrepreneur, Enyinna has imprinted on some of the most phenomenal film productions out of Africa including ‘Badamasi’, ‘Wedding Party’ and ‘Eagles Wing’.
