U.S. actress Kerry Washington wishes Nollywood actress Uzo Aduba ‘happy birthday’ in Igbo language
U.S. movie producer and actress, Kerry Washington, who gained public recognition for starring in the ABC drama, Scandal, took Nigerian actress Uzo Amaka by surprise when she wished her a happy birthday in her Igbo language.
Kerry Washington who sent down the birthday wish through her Twitter handle, tweeted:
@UzoAduba Ncheta ubochi omumu gi. Ekele diri Chineke.
…translating to “Happy birthday. Thanks be to God”
Replying her, excited Uzo Aduba tweeted:
Heh! Nwannem nwanyi, i na asu Igbo??!? Maka o di mma! Nwanne, daalu maka ubochi omumu m.
…translating to “eh! Dear sister, you speak Igbo??!? For he (Nnamdi) is good! Brother, thank you for my birthday.”
Washington is married to Nnamdi Asomugha, a Nigerian American actor, producer and former American football cornerback who got drafted in the first round of the 2003 NFL Draft by the Oakland Raiders.
Do you think Nnamdi or the Nigerian in-laws played a part in Washington’s Igbo tweets?
