Despite acting alongside some major star power in Half of a Yellow Sun, this Nigerian beauty managed to stand out. Already a household name in Nollywood, the Nigerian film industry, the actress is poised to make a mark on Hollywood. These days, it's not only her acting that's getting attention — she's been a vocal advocate for efforts to recover the 237 abducted school girls in her home country.
