She is undoubtedly one of the very first authentic stars of Nollywood.

In those days she was known as the ‘Screen goddess’ of Nigerian film.

For the younger generation who may not know who she is, her name is LIZ BENSON.

She is currently 57 years old.

The delectable actress was 29 years old when she played Zack Orji’s mother in the 1995 classic film ‘True Confession’.

In 1998, she was Richard Mofe Damijo’s mother in ‘Scores to Settle’.

She also played Kenneth Okonkwor’s aged mother in the blockbuster films ‘Sins of the father’ and ‘Izaga’.

By year 1999 she was 33 years old. Wow!

How this great woman was effortlessly able to play mommy roles to adults who are way older while in her 20s and early 30s is something that still amazes me till this day.

If I was asked to guess her age in 1999 I’d say she was 40+

And with the way she was controlling Sir Pete Edochie in ‘Chain Reaction’ you’d think they’re age mates..🤣

A very beautiful woman with style and grace!
A role model to many!

I call her the ‘Queen of make believe’ because she interprets every role with so much passion.

She paused her acting career and focused on spreading evangelism with her bishop husband who she got married to sometime in 2009.

Evangelist Elizabeth Ameye Benson has starred in more than two hundred films over the span of her acting career. I can only make a list of a few of her movies..
•Burden. •Izaga
•Hour of Grace. •My Cross
•Witches. •The Oat
•True Confession. •World Apart
•Scores to settle. •Lady Bianca
•Sins of the father. •Diamond ring
•Chain Reaction. •Evil Men….etc

Let’s celebrate this icon!🍾
