He is handsome and talented, He is A Medical Doctor. Ibe Ogbu popularly known as Fyneface, is best known in the fashion world than he's celebrated in the world of make-believe. But nonetheless, he's determined to make his mark, as he debuts in Nollywood.
Fyneface, who studied Medical Physiology, at University of Port-Harcourt says, acting has been an integral part of his existence. Even though, he has made a name for himself, designing native clothes for high-flying politicians and royal fathers in Port-Harcourt, including Governor Nysom Wike of Rivers State, Fyneface still feels the urge to delve into acting.
According to him, “I wanted to study Theatre Arts, but my mum insisted I must become a medical doctor. I never had affection for medicine. So, when I got into the university, she was still pushing me to study medicine, but I ended up, studying medical physiology. After my graduation, she wanted me to go back to school and study medicine. But I refused, maintaining that it wasn't what I wanted in life.
So, I went for fashion and acting,”the budding actor recounted.
Continuing, Fyneface said, “For me, it's a dream come true, having been desiring to become an actor since my childhood. I have passion for acting as well as designing native clothes.”
