What you must know about Chidi GQ Mokeme

Chidiebere Geoffrey Azubuike Mokeme was born in Ogidi, Anambra State close to 34 years ago to a now retired insurance executive a retired teacher.

He’s a born artiste. But his parents wanted him to go for the sciences and he obeyed them. After his secondary education at the Federal Government College, Minna, he settled for computer science.

Pharmacy was actually his first choice, but no thanks to the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) which played its usual frustrating and discouraging role, he attended the Institute of Management and Technology (IMT), Enugu.

That was merely to satisfy his parents’ wish. Chidi Mokeme was art-inclined but couldn’t oppose them as they knew better and called the shots then. Today, Chidi is an actor, model, fashion designer, Reality show presenter, businessman and a complete gentleman.

He has acted in many nollywood movies and also
successfully presented Nigeria’s First Reality TV show, the Gulder Ultimate Search.

When asked recently how is life after the ‘ultimate’ experience, which visibly launched him into greater heights? Hear him.
“It’s been good. To some extent, you can say that it took me to more places and increased my fan base, being a programme that ran daily on national television, as well as a on cable station. So my fan base went wider than it used to be.”
I’m back to the locations. I still design but for selected people since I rarely have time. I’ve been busy making so many movies. What saves the situation is that I make their clothes in bulk so it sustains them for a while before they request for new ones.”

The Nigerian Nollywood Photoblog hereby presents to you Chidi Mokeme.
