By Esther Jacobs

FREDERICK AKPOWENE ASEROMA
(a Nollywood Celebrity)
Fred Aseroma is an acclaimed Nollywood Star Actor. Born in the late 60's in Lagos Nigeria, Fred is a multitalented actor and a household name in his native country Nigeria and has also started to make waves in diaspora. He hails from Delta state, in the oil-rich Niger-Delta region where his parents, Chief & Mrs Francis Aseroma now reside.

Fred is a graduate of Applied Chemistry from the University of Lagos but never practised as a Chemist because of his strong inclinations for creative work.

Soon after graduating from the University, the ingenious actor delved into Film acting where he bagged his first movie award after his second major appearance in the movie “To live Again” adjudged “Thema Awards Best up-coming Actor”. His artistic prowess propelled him further into becoming a force to be reckoned with in the Film industry in Nigeria called “Nollywood”.

Till date, Fred has over 100 movies and a handful of soap operas, shown all over Africa and the Diaspora to his credit, with other notable awards to demonstrate his talents.

As a Broadcaster and TV Presenter, Fred also took time out to show the stuff he is made of. He has worked in notable T.V stations and anchored many programmes for NTA such as “New Dawn on 10 and “Petroleum Perspective”, (an oil and gas programme). Fred has written and produced a few documentaries for the oil and gas sector in Nigeria.

A seemingly reserved and modest actor, he is also a model of repute and voice over artiste, Frederick has featured in numerous TV/Radio commercials for various companies and top brands within Nigeria and abroad. His creative romance with Nigerian's top Telecommunications Giant – Globacom, speak volumes, due to the landslide success recorded financially in terms of marketing and otherwise by the company. He championed several nation-wide Pigin/ English grassroot product campaigns for this company and other notable companies on the Radio, TV, Road- shows and Events.

Fred is currently the Director of Communications in a newly formed company, Tifrehil communications Ltd, based in the U.K, an upwardly mobile production company who are into many projects which would unfold very soon. Fred now shuttles between Nigeria and Europe.

He was approached recently at the West end in London in the midst of his friends and asked about his ambition. He smiled.

“ I have always had a great yearning to make a difference in my various professional endeavours. My versatility, dexterity and determination have taken me far and wide and still farther to go. My destiny has propelled me to greater and unimaginable heights in different other fields and in different spheres of life, in several parts of the world, giving back to the brotherhood of mankind love, goodwill and laughter with my God given talent”

Frederick Aseroma is married and blessed with three lovely children.
