Chinenye Nnebe is a Nollywood actress and model who was introduced to the industry as a child actress by her mother, Uche Nancy. She is quite rising fast in her career in the industry, given her loveable nature and creativity in her craft. Some of the numerous movies she has starred in include Dry, Dirty Diamond, and The Hot Kingdom. On the personal front, Chinenye has a son but has decided to keep sealed lips about who the boy’s father is. Let’s take a look at the truth behind this and other facts you need to know about this fast-rising actress.
Is Actress Chinenye Nnebe a Married Woman?
The beautiful young actress is not married and is still very much single. Moreover, there has been no genuine news of a current and stable boyfriend, and this is a result of her private lifestyle. However, the actress is linked to Regina Daniel‘s ex-boyfriend, Nollywood actor Somadina Adinma with claims that both of them are dating. Chinenye has debunked this rumor, saying that Somadina is just like a brother to her and has also been her childhood friend. She made this known to her fans via her Instagram page, maintaining that Somadina is a professional colleague to her and there is nothing attached to it.
Chinenye is reportedly not dating anyone at the moment and doesn’t look like she is ready for any relationship yet. She is not also bothered about this but has chosen to focus more on her career to get to the success point she aspires for. Also, this is something her mother takes credit for. The older woman has been in the industry long before her and understands how things work. Her mother continues to give her blunt advice regarding celebrities, relationships, life, and all.
Chinenye Nnebe Has a Son But Her Baby Daddy Remains a Puzzle
To date, the actress’s baby daddy is still a mystery to all. There is no information available about who the father of her child is or when she had the baby. However, given the rumor that the young actress is dating actor Somadina, many people are still peddling that the actor could be the father of her baby boy. There is no proof of this as Chinenye had already discredited the claim, hence, we do not have a cause to believe otherwise.
However, it is known that the Nigerian actress has a cute baby boy whom she named Meek. Given her blatant attitude regarding her personal life, she has not disclosed any details about when the child was born, as well as whether or not her baby daddy is involved in the child’s life. We have no handy information about little Meek as she barely talks about him.
Chinenye Was Born and Raised in Asaba, Delta State
Chinenye Nnebe was born on 5th April 1997, making her 24 years old. She hails from Asaba, Delta State, and was born and brought up in her hometown.

Chinenye attended a reputable private primary school before enrolling in St. Augustine’s college where she had her senior school certificate, both in Asaba. She is currently an undergraduate at a Nigerian university.
While many gained entrance into the entertainment industry through personal hard work and struggle, Chinenye gained hers through the influence of her mother. She started acting in 2000 as a baby of 3 when her mom featured her in one of her movies. Chinenye, even as a toddler, made an interesting and perfect baby actress.
The lovable actress has grown from a child actor to a Nollywood splash. Her mother who already has a position in the industry tries everything within her power to ensure her rise. She gained more fame after starring in the blockbuster movie, Dry, a 2017 film produced and directed by veteran actress Stephanie Okereke. In the movie, Chinenye played the character of Dr. Zara who lost her family and was finally raped by hooligans. The movie earned her an award at the African Magic Viewers Choice Awards for Most Promising Actress in Nigeria. Since then, she has been gracing the movie industry with her skills and creativity. Some of the movies she has starred in are:
- The Model
- Hot Kingdom

She Is Also a Model
Besides acting, the young actress is also a model who has worked with some significant brands. In her modeling profession, she has worked for big names like the popular hair brand, Sonia Hair Extensions, and a clothing brand known as Omah’s World. At the young age of 24, Chinenye is able to acquire a fortune for herself with a cheering $150,000 net worth to show for it. She is a growing actress who is still climbing the ladder of success and will definitely expand her fortune in the nearest future.
The Beautiful Actress Comes From a Family of Celebrities
Chinenye is the last child in a family of four girls and definitely not the only celebrity in her family. Their mother, Uche Nancy is a popular Nigerian movie producer and a set decorator (costumier). She joined Nollywood in 2008, first as a set decorator, and has worked on many popular movies such as World Apart and Girls Cot. Subsequently, she started doubling costume designing with movie production and has since produced over 50 Nollywood movies. Uche has worked with many high-profile personalities in the industry, including Angela Okorie, Mercy Johnson, and Muna Obiekwe. Some of the movies she has produced are The Ungrateful Wife, Our Pregnant Wife, Loving Heart, Smile For Me, Your Love My Wealth, Only Son, and many others.
Again, Chinenye’s older sister, Sonia Uche is an upcoming actress. She performed excellently in some of the movies she has featured in which include Beauty of Karma, Sweet Sisters, My Little Kiwi, Sister Nkeiru, Pain of Love, and others. She has equally starred in movies alongside top Nollywood stars like Ngozi Ezeonu, Ebele Okaro, Zubby Michael, Jerry Williams, Nosa Rex, and so on. Sonia got this edge because of her fast-growing acting prowess and diligence. She is also talented just like her younger sister, Chinenye.
Her other siblings are Ijeoma and Chinanu who are also doing well for themselves, though not in the entertainment industry
