1. The Future Awards Africa Prize for Acting
A. Ini Idima-Okojie (27)
Ini-Dima Okojie got her big break, playing an annoying but indefatigable villainess on the hit webseries, “Skinny Girl in Transit”. It was a role it seemed Dima-Okojie was destined to play, and her star making turn saw her quickly cast as the lead in the Ebony Life TV Series “On The Real” and a film debut “It’s Her Day”.
Since then, Dima-Okojie has become a staple on television, Youtube and Film, scoring role after role.
