Right now in Nollywood, her name has become the buzzword. Every actor and actress wants to meet her. She has also become the darling of every movie Director & Producer.
This is because Dr. Oby Olebara Uzoukwo has raised the bar in the Movie sector with her new company called Afrigold TV.
A few months back, she gathered all the creme-de-la-creme and stakeholders in the movie industry for a big launch of her company. That was on August 7th 2018 at her impressive office, inside the highbrow ChevyView Estate, near Chevron in Lekki. This US trained female entrepreneur presides over what is known as OBYLICIOUS Empire made up of 4 subsidiaries namely: Afrigold TV, Obylicious Empire Film Academy, Obylicious Empire Production and Obylicious Merchandise.

Her goal with the film academy is to offer world class courses spanning every aspect of the entertainment arts ecosystem that are developed and taught by award winning professionals drawn from the Motion Picture industry and the academia, motivated to boost and enhance students creativity and technical expertise through practical, hands on and classroom instruction.
Her message to graduants at the graduation was for a lot of young people to TAKE ACTION. It was the great actor. Arnord Schwarzenegger who said “You can’t climb the ladder of success with your hands in your pockets”.
“Every story you’ve ever connected with, every leader you’ve ever admired, every little thing that you’ve ever accomplished in this life, is the result of taking action. Today, you have a choice. Take Action because your time is limited. So, don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinion drawn you out of your career and ultimately Nollywood TAKE ACTION.”
“You must have the nerve to go into unexplored territory. be brave enought to live a life of creativity. The creative is the place where no one else has ever been. It is not the previously known. You have to leave the city of your comfort zone. For you to do this, you should Take Action”.
“You should leave this graduation ceremony with the mentality that you are the chosen one. You should see yourself as the next “POSTER FACE” in that box office movie breaking records. Remember As HE THINKETH SO IS HE. Your parents, friends, fans, family members and are here today because of you. All Eyes on You. You can’t afford to disappoint destiny. TAKE ACTION.”
“I remember with nsotalgia my moments with you during your practical sessions and I can tell that you are going to have a great career. Believe it, embrace it, and then remember to listen, learn and Take Action.”
“Don’t let someone else’s success define you. Rather than compete with others, share and support one another. Send job posts, check in with yourselves. Don’t let it end here. Community is about building one another up. Your turn will come. It’s important, having heard all the lecture, to let you have this as a conclusion that you are going into an industry that is in dire need of talented Actors. You must think of finding your place. I have identified some of you and I shall be looking forward to working with you again and again at the Obylicious Empire Production.”
“So, don’t think of going back to the laps of your parents. That will be living a failed life. Turn to someone by you and say “TAKE ACTION” She got a resounding applause for her inspiring speech.
