    Nollywood superstar ZACK ORJI wins the 'USAfrica International Actor of the Year 2006' in USA

    ZACK ORJI, one of Africa's most versatile actors, has been honored at USAfrica 14th anniversary BEST OF AFRICA banquet with USAfrica's first International Actor of the Year 2006 honors in Houston Houston, Texas, USA.

    The prestigious award was presented to Zack on behalf of USAfrica by veteran civil rights advocate and U.S Congressman Al Green on Friday May 5, 2006, at the Hilton Towers at Westchase, Houston. USAfrica was assessed recently by the flagship of American journalism, The New York Times, as the largest and most influential U.S-based African-owned multimedia networks while USAfricaonline.com is the 1st African-owned, U.S.-based professional newspaper published on the internet.

    In the prefacing the presentation of the award citation, Chido Nwangwu (Founder & Publisher of USAfrica, USAfricaonline.com, The Black Business Journal, CLASS magazine and AchebeBooks.com) told the dignitaries that "I strongly recommended Zack for this special award of being thr first USAfrica International Actor of the Year because it reflects Zack's profound artistic and dramatic versatility, Zack's boundless commitment to professionalism, and for being, in very sense, our true ambassador of excellence. He's our own Eddie Murphy and Will Smith, and more. Zack is bilingual in French and English. He is internationalist in outlook. Zack, we're all very proud of you, and we'll push your creative work across the entire networks of USAfrica and other platforms here in the U.S, and beyond."

    Immediately, a standing ovation was given Zack by the professionals, creme d'le creme of the African, African-Americans and other Americans at the annual banquet from different sections of the U.S., Nigeria and parts of Africa.

    In accepting the international honor, Zack said "I'm humbled by this major recognition. I'm very appreciative of being honored by USAfrica and all of you here in Houston. I thank you for this special recognition, for your support and your kind gestures."

    Shortly after the other honorees were given their awards, the superstar attarction of Zack was in full, dramatic flow, as many wanted a picture with him.
    Zack was born in Gabon and partly raised in Cameroon. He has been in many Nigerian-Ghanaian co-productions, including his directorial debut, The Web, made with the collaboration of Ghanaians, South Africans, a Sierra Leonean, and an Australian.

    The first movie and breakthrough role was in "The Unforgivable Sin” which caused Zack to be nominated for 'Best Actor' award during the 1995 AMEN awards. Since then he has featured in about 158 different films, playing mainly lead roles.

    Zack is the President of the Actors' Guild of Nigeria-Nollywood, a guild spread across 16 states of the federation of Nigeria. He holds a B.Sc. (Hons) Estate Management degree from the University of Nigeria, Nsukka, graduating in 1984.

    A family man and loving father and husband, he has been married for 16 years to his wife Ngozi Orji and they have three children, a son and two daughters.
