Beautiful Actress Racheal Oyiza is among the young actress making waves in Canada.
She relocated 3 years ago and besides acting, she works with the health care sector. Before relocating to Canada she has featured in a good number of movies. In this interview with Citypeople she talked about her 7yrs journey into the movie industry and how the movie she co-produced shot her to the limelight.
My name is Racheal Oyiza Ugorji born and raised in Nigeria and resided in Canada 3years ago, I work in the health care sector here in Canada and am also an entrepreneur and Canadian actress. I started my acting career back in Nigeria with some film and stage production companies in the community sector like Calabash Movie Production.
Having been acting now for over 7/8 years now. When I came to Canada I was so lucky to meet one of the great actresses here in Canada, Lola Alao she was my mentor here in Canada and I started rehearsal with her and acted with her in two future movies.
The limelight movie that actually brought out the star in me as an actress was the movie title Tomiwa which i co-produced and acted as the female lead role with Empire Goose Production here in Canada. It was a very interesting movie.
As well have co-produced in some short films as well like MAN IN BETWEEN, LOVE LETTER, RAPE trending now on Empire Goose Production Youtube Channel. Even right now I’m working on a project with Empire Goose Production which contains mostly A list Nollywood actors and actresses like JAIYE KUTI, RONKE ODUSANYA, JAMIU AZEEZ, JOSEPH MOMODU, ABIODUN ADEBANJO, ABASS AKANJI, DEBORAH EWEDAFE, and my humble self RACHEAL OYIZA UGORJI.
Eeru(Ashes) is one of the biggest productions I’m working on right now with Empire Goose Production as the Vice President and Executive Producer and more projects in plans for future movies.
Talking about challenges I face in the industry is really terrible. The challenges you face with some directors and producers can be good and it can be bad, but what I have learned is that as an individual coming together to bring a project to life someone just needs to be humble and know your worth in the game.
