Seasoned and skilled Nigerian actress and film producer, Nwakaego (Ego) Boyo is on a mission to reposition filmmaking in Nigeria, Africa, and the world with her unique talent of telling stories that tug at the heart, soothe the soul, and travel to a place where magical thoughts bring to life our deepest dreams. A gifted Nigerian bag of talent who set the tone of her career with the infallible portrayal of Anne Haastrup — the main character of popular late 1980s soap opera ‘Checkmate‘ where she won the hearts of Nigerians all over, Nwakaego Boyo is a force to be reckoned with.
As the founder of Temple Media Advocacy and Information Foundation (Tempio foundation), this soft-spoken headliner in the Nigerian film industry put her acquired skills and expertise into her companies: Temple Productions, Temple Films and Temple Studios where she is Executive Producer and Chief Executive with the unique focus on highlighting women’s education and women’s healthcare. This foundation which works with non-governmental organizations on their visual messaging to help educate the less privileged has been actively involved in documentaries and advocacy videos focusing on maternal health as well as sexual assault.
In addition to her mastery of filmmaking, Ego’s leaning towards education, philanthropy and non-governmental organisations that champion women’s causes pivoted her to being a Global Rights Ambassador for Global Rights Nigeria; whose work focuses on combating sexual violence against women; the 60th president of International Women Society (IWS) — an independent, non-political, non-governmental and non-profit organisation founded in 1957.
