WHILE many of his ilk are still groping in the dark, figuring out what to do with their latent skills and potentials, young and very upwardly mobile Emmanuel Ikubese, has already hit the ground running, since he sauntered into our consciousness as winner of the 2014 edition of Mr. Nigeria.
Here is one young chap who would not allow his fledgling fame and stardom to distract him from making a meaningful impact on the lives of other people.
Forget his striking, irresistible and charming sex appeal, coupled with screen playing role as a playboy, striking poses for the cameras or taking a due break from work, one thing is certain about this well-focused youngster; he is certainly charting a potent course for himself outside the world of glamour which his Mr. Nigeria status has foisted on him.
Today, Emma is quietly climbing the proverbial ladder of success with his acting prowess, but that is not the story here.
The handsome Emma is a rare breed in the area of charity and philanthropy, even at his relatively young age. Very unassuming, attractive and admirable, Emmanuel Ikuebese, who doubles as a model and actor, aside being a former Mr. Nigeria and first runner-up of Mr. World, has over time, been championing a campaign against violence on women, with his pet project aptly titled ‘Respect A Woman’ RAW.
Emerging movie actor
The fast emerging movie actor describes himself at every opportunity he has to do so, as a philanthropic persona whose many ambitions are ably supported by his ‘go-getter’ attitude; just as he uncompromisingly aspires to use his accompanying successes in the make-believe world and showbiz to jump start his NGO Foundation for orphans and abandoned kids; a project that is very dear to his heart.
Emma, for your information, has already started using his unquantifiable personality and meagre funds to push the campaign against domestic violence against women, from one neighbourhood to another, and simultaneously taking the campaign to the universities and other tertiary institutions across the nation.
