An actress, Uche Montana (formerly known as Uche Nwaefuna), has said that those looking for ‘proof’ that beauty and brains still exist should look no further than her.
In an interview with Sunday Scoop, she said, “It cannot be denied that I am as talented as I am beautiful. Embracing my femininity is not something to be ashamed of. My work speaks for me, because I always deliver. Hard work, dedication and consistency have got me the recognition I deserve.”
On why she changed her brand name from ‘Nwaefuna’ to ‘Montana’, the actress said, “Changing my name was a branding decision. I am not only an influencer and actor, I am also business-minded. Over the years, I noticed that my fans, colleagues, international brands, and even intending business partners found it difficult to pronounce and spell my surname, ‘Nwaefuna’. Hence, the change. Montana is my father’s name though. It was not made up.”
Asked if there is any role she is afraid of taking on, Montana said, “I don’t think there is any role I am afraid to take on. The full package of being a good actor is that one can embrace any character. There could be challenges sometimes, but one cannot be considered a good actor without being bold enough to explore one’s skills at length. I love to be challenged.”
