Nigerians have dug up an old photo of BBNaija lockdown edition housemate Erica which has become the topic under discussion on social media.
The old photo of Erica compared to her present look revealed that she has bleached as Nigerians continue to drag her online.
Other social media users defended her saying it is just a case of good living since she has become fair or light-skinned because of money but not the intent of changing her complexion. See photo below:
Erica Nlewedim is a Nigerian actress and commercial model who is currently participating in the ongoing BBNaija Season 5 show, tagged “Lockdown” as one of the housemates.
Erica was born in Nigeria but she also stayed in London while studying screen acting at the Met Film School in the UK. Erica currently lives in Lagos. Her full name is Ngozi Nlewedim.
Erica is very passionate about her career in acting. Erica said she transitioned from modelling to Nollywood after participating in the 2014 Most Beautiful Girl in Nigeria pageant.
BBN Erica says she would love to play the lead character in an action film. She also expressed admiration for female action stars Angelina Jolie and Charlize Theron.
Erica said: “My dream role would be to be the main character in an action film. I have always loved female action stars like Angelina Jolie and Charlize Theron and dreamed of acting like them. I’m currently training myself to be ready whenever that role presents itself.”
BBNaija mentioned Halley Berry as the actress that has inspired her the most. The 26-year-old actress gushed about Halle Berry during a recent interview with TheGuardiannewspaper.
Erica told the interviewer: “Halle Berry inspires me a lot because she’s one of the most successful black action stars. She’s versatile also.
She is the first black woman to win an Oscar for best actress, she’s very classy and even after so many years of acting, she’s still in great form and can still take on action roles in her fifties. I admire her a lot because she gave me a role model of my skin colour, we have very few black female action stars.”
