“My name is Omeya Chinemerem, I’m 23 years old, and I’m a graduate of the University of Nigeria, where I studied Home science Nutrition and Dietetics. I’m an aspiring Actor and an event Host. I love to entertain people and put smiles on their faces with the help of entertainment. As a participant at the just concluded Qtaby Online Talent Show, it was fulfilling. After making it to the top 15 contestants, I knew I had a massive talent in me and was not ready to give up.
Out of hundreds of entries, I made it to top5, it was an exciting moment, but I knew I had to keep getting better with my acting craft. All the contestants were requested to get views, likes, and comments for the final stage for the entries we submitted, and it was another different level cos I had to think of ways to make people watch and engage in my video. I had fun, and I learned a lot, and making it to 3rd position is more than a dream come through, cos this is a bigger platform, and I had a lot of people view and like my craft, it meant soo much to me.” – Omeya
