I actually don’t like people calling me ‘Chewie’…..Chiwetel Ejiofor

Description

Chiwetelu Umeadi ‘Chiwetel’ Ejiofor, OBE, or Chiwetel Ejiofor, for short, once in 2008 complained bitterly about people’s penchant for calling him ‘Chewie’ instead of his real name Chiwetel but that has become one of the many price tags he has come to live with on his peculiar and quiet rise to fame in an unwelcome territory for African artistes called Hollywood, in less than 25 years of showing up on it. This Nigerian is the highest grossing actor per film among all actors of African origin in Hollywood dusting the likes of Charlize Theron of South Africa and Djimon Hounsou of the Benin Republic who are way behind in terms of earnings.
